Parker Hannifin to launch new products at Offshore Europe 2011

Parker Hannifin will be exhibiting an extensive range of its advanced engineering solutions for the gas and oil industry sectors on stands X60 and 3E160 at the 2011 Offshore Europe Exhibition. The company will also be launching a number of new and innovative products that can improve safety, productivity and profitability for OEMs, system builders, and extraction, drilling and process operators.

Parker has been an integral part of oil and gas exploration and production for more than 50 years. This experience as a technology expert has enabled Parker to develop partnerships with customers around the world.

On show for the first time at Offshore Europe 2011 will be an innovative new range of ATEX-approved directly-operated hydraulic proportional valves, designed for use in Zone 1 areas. The D1FB*EE features explosion-proof solenoids, is available with the option of spool/sleeve designs for precision or spool/body designs for high nominal flow characteristics up to 30 litres/minute, and has extremely low levels of hysteresis that are typically less than 4 per cent. Response times are fast, at 30ms for a 100 per cent step, with the D1FB*EE also offering superior resistance to vibration and extremes of temperature.

Among other specialised products on show will be the Black Eagle range of abrasion- and chemical-resistant, multi-spiral, wire-reinforced hoses that are specifically designed to withstand high operating pressures to over 1000bar, and temperatures up to 125degC. Black Eagle is available in continuous lengths of up to 3000m, thereby minimising the need for splicing, and is suitable for applications ranging from methanol injection and well stimulation to acidising and cementing.

Also being exhibited are Parker's compact and lightweight Moduflex AirGuard pressure-sensitive safety air fuses that are designed to protect operators of pneumatic equipment from the hazards associated with severed or broken compressed-air hose. The fuses are easy to fit and designed to shut-off air flow immediately in the event of a break or leak at a predetermined value. AirGuard fuses are fully compliant with increasingly stringent safety standards, including EN ISO 4414, Pneumatic fluid power - General rules and safety requirements for systems and their components.

Parker will also be exhibiting its range of online and portable condition monitoring instruments and diagnostic equipment for predictive maintenance programmes. These include energy-efficient compressed air filtration treatment technologies as well as hydraulics maintenance products and systems that prevent contamination.
