Parker Hannifin is launching three new hydraulic hoses that have been developed to minimise maintenance and increase profitability across a wide range of industrial applications. These are: the PowerLift 477 for crane and lifting equipment; the RemoFlex 412 pilot line hose with an increased working pressure of 12.0MPa; and the Push-Lok Plus 801 low-pressure hose with a higher working pressure and an extended colour range.
The new Parker PowerLift 477 medium-pressure hose has been specifically developed for the crane and lifting equipment market, where increased working pressure and restricted space are the driving factors for hydraulic hose technology. Parker PowerLift hose features two steel wire braids and offers a combination of higher working pressure, smaller outside diameter based on compact hose construction, a tight bending radius and light weight. In addition, the nitrile inner tube offers increased chemical resistance to bio oil and the outer cover is resistant to abrasion, providing longer service life and reduced overall equipment costs.
RemoFlex 412 is a highly flexible pilot line hose for an increased constant working pressure of 12.0MPa and meets the requirements of modern hydraulic control systems mainly used in mobile applications. The hose combines an abrasion- and ozone-resistant cover with a small outside diameter and excellent fluid compatibility through a nitrile inner tube. RemoFlex 412 is suitable for many industrial sectors, especially in space-restricted mobile construction equipment.
Push-Lok Plus 801 hose is a new low-pressure product with a higher working pressure and extended colour range. It features Parker's Push-Lok self-grip system that makes assembly easy and fast, with no need for tools or clamps; as a result, assembly time and stock levels can be reduced. The hose is available in seven colours to simplify identification, production processes, control of maintenance intervals and stock planning. Parker says that the long service life of the Push-Lok hose, in combination with its continuously high performance, have made it a leader in the low-pressure market. Push-Lok fittings are available worldwide and are made to DIN, BSP, SAE, JIC and ORFS in steel, brass and stainless steel.
