Coupling-hose combination handles high pressure

Designing for off-highway applications that encounter high hydraulic pressure and a wide temperature range is easier with this line of 6W Couplings. The couplings come with high pressure braided hose for applications that encounter pressures to 6000 psi, and temperature ranges from –40° F to 250° F. These couplings are a one-piece, bite-the-wire crimp coupling

Parker expands Compact SpiralTM hose line

When Parker Hannifin’s high-pressure, no-skive Compact Spiral™ hose was introduced in 2009, it raised the bar for flexibility, strength, endurance and weight. Now Parker is adding two new hose sizes typically used in heavy-duty equipment, -24 and -32, as well as adding new fitting end configurations for many applications. The -24 and -32 Compact Spiral

Essential Steps in Selecting the Correct Hose End Fitting

The live webinar was September 24, 2013.  Extensive information is available regarding polymers utilized in industrial hoses. However, appropriate selection methodologies for choosing the safest and most effective couplings are rarely discussed. Hose leaks, failures and worker safety issues can be avoided by understanding how to select the best coupling for your hose assembly. Watch
