Parker Adds New Sizes to Compact Spiral Hose Line for Heavy-Duty Applications | Industry News

Parker Hannifin's no-skive Compact Spiral hose now has two new hose sizes typically used in heavy-duty equipment as well as new fitting end configurations for many applications. 

The -24 and -32 Compact Spiral hoses are available in 5,000 psi (787TC) and 6,000 psi (797TC). Both weigh less than a standard SAE spiral hose, have smaller outside diameters and smaller bending radii.The new large sizes are designed to meet market needs in oil and gas, mining, forestry and heavy off-road equipment applications.

Along with the new hose sizes, Parker added more than 60 new fitting end configurations to its 77 Series steel fitting line for Compact Spiral hose. Nearly 300 fitting configurations are now available.

Parker's Compact Spiral hose:

  • Rated to 5,000 psi (787TC) and 6,000 psi (797TC); highly abrasion resistant hose covers (80-times more abrasion resistant compared to standard rubber covered hose).
  • Flex impulse tested and tested up to 2,000,000 impulse cycles – four times the SAE and twice the ISO standard.
  • Improves flow characteristics while maintaining same OD size, or provides equal flow characteristics by maintaining ID size while reducing OD size.
  • More direct routing options require less hose, reducing inventory amount of hose needed as well as shipping and packaging costs.
  • Almost 30% smaller O.D., up to 26% lighter and bend radius is 50% better than current industry standards.
  • Available in sizes: -8, -10, -12, 16, -20, -24 and -32.
