New Economical Parker Flange and Flare Machine Makes High-quality Leak-Free Connections
Press release date: December 9, 2013
COLUMBUS, OH — The new Parflange ECO 25 tube flanging (90°) and flaring (37°) unit from Parker Hannifin is a cost-effective tube end connection machine designed to create leak free Seal-Lok O-ring Face Seal and Triple-Lok 37° JIC tube connections up to 9,200 psi without brazing or welding.
Parflange ECO 25 utilizes the proven orbital spindle motion exclusive to Parker's extensive line of Parflange machines. It creates a smooth mating surface on flanges (90º) and flares (37º), which is critical to the quality and integrity of tube connections.
A key feature of the ECO 25 is multi-functional tooling. The unit requires only one die set per tube size for both flanging and flaring. Each die set has a flanging surface on one side and a flaring surface on the other, allowing users to flange and flare same size tubing simply by turning the die around. An adjustable tube stop allows use on a wide range of wall thickness.
Other features include:
110V single-phase power requirement
Convenient shop portability
Utilizes same pins as other Parker Parflange units
Capable of flanging and flaring a range of ¼" x .028 through 1½" x .120 steel and stainless steel tube.
The mobile unit can be used with a manual hydraulic pump. To learn more about the Parflange ECO 25, call 614.279.7070 or view the product bulletin. Additional tooling information and the product manual can be found at www.TFDToolSpec.com.
