High-performance hydraulic hose reduces engineering complexity

Parker Hannifin is introducing GlobalCore – five hydraulic hoses and two fittings series that significantly reduce engineering and service complexity by providing the first comprehensive product family across the most commonly used constant working pressure classes.

Designed to meet the most common working pressures in industry, GlobalCore is built and tested to the ISO 18752 specification. With GlobalCore hoses tested to twice the ISO 18752 standard, high performance in rugged environments and high-impulse applications is ensured.

Doug Gilbert, Marketing Manager, Parker Hose Products Division, says: “GlobalCore is a unified system that delivers hoses built on the ISO 18752 specification, which was developed on how hoses are specified and used by customers – by pressure range and not by construction. GlobalCore expands our range of ISO 18752 hoses and provides options for the most critical sizes and pressure ranges – 3000psi to 6000psi in sizes four through 32.”

Parker’s GlobalCore hoses are manufactured in the major regions of the world – North America, Europe and Asia – thereby supporting the equipment they serve regardless of where it was originally manufactured, or where it is today.

Gilbert says: “The GlobalCore system is simple. With only five hoses, OEM and MRO customers alike will enjoy selecting the right hose based on working pressure. Selecting the fitting is even simpler – the 43 Series or 77 Series, depending on the hose and working pressure selected.”

Parker’s hose design enables it to be half the bend radius of conventional hose, which makes installation and routing much easier. GlobalCore is compatible with Parker’s Parkrimp family of crimpers and features no-skive, premium abrasion-resistant covers, providing users with less downtime and longer intervals between replacements.
