Press release date: January 10, 2014

Ravenna, OH – Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, forms tubing and hoses to help customers quickly route over, under, and through confined spaces by supplying tubing that is shaped to fit the design of the application. XDT tubing (eXtreme Duty Tubing) is less expensive than hose, has a tighter bend radius and can replace hose in low pressure hydraulic systems. Each tube is pre-formed during production to fit the application design and the light-weight, PMH push-to-connect hydraulic fitting is designed to speed up assembly, especially in difficult to reach areas such as hydraulic joystick ports. The push-to-connect ends reduce assembly time by 60 seconds per connection when compared to standard hose fittings, allowing the assembly to quickly snap into place. In addition, the PMH/XDT system is 60% lighter than traditional pilot line hose assemblies, reducing annual shipping costs and vehicle weight.

XDT tubing assemblies are available from the Parflex division in 1/4", 3/8" or 1/2" I.D. and operates in temperatures ranging from -40F to +200F. To view this tubing in an actual application, visit Parker Hannifin at IFPE 2014, booth S-80440 on March 4th – 8th, 2014, in Las Vegas, NV.

With annual sales of $13 billion in fiscal year 2013, Parker Hannifin is the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs approximately 58,000 people in 49 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 57 consecutive fiscal years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index.
