New hose technology for machine assemblers

An innovative flexible compact spiral hose that provides a notably long service life has been developed by Parker Hannifin, for use in both stationary and mobile industrial machinery in a wide range of applications, including construction, defence, oil and gas.

Offering 5,000 and 6,000 psi hose performance in a compact design, the new Compact Spiral delivers improvement in productivity for OEM's and end users alike with greater routing, installation, durability, size and weight advantages over conventional SAE spiral hoses

The company tells us that Compact Spiral offers sophisticated new features without any compromise to hose life. The new hoses can achieve two million impulse cycles – two times the ISO 18752-DC standard and four times the SAE requirement. This translates to a significantly longer service life in nearly all applications, particularly in those where many repeat cycles occur within a short timeframe, such as in injection moulding machines.

The system is easier to route and install, saving valuable time and effort, and more hose can be routed into tight quarters where larger diameter, less flexible hoses simply would not fit. Customers can also jump up to a larger hose size to achieve better flow characteristics for their hydraulic systems while maintaining an outside diameter similar to the smaller hose that was previously installed.
