New Parker 692 Hose Designed for Material Handling and Over-the-Sheave Applications



Provides Tighter Bend Radius Saving Space, Increasing Visibility in Forklift Masts

WICKLIFFE, OH - Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has released its 692 hose line, designed specifically for material handling and over-the-sheave applications. The design and construction of the 692 hose allows for a tighter bend radius compared to other hoses on the market, which saves space in the mast and increases visibility for the operator.

To improve visibility for the lift truck operator, components must be moved or reduced in size. Parker's new 692 hose addresses both concerns. Rated to the tightest bend radius in the industry, the 692 hose enables smaller pulleys to be used in the mast area, freeing up space. With a smaller outside diameter than other hoses, more area is gained in the mast area improving visibility.

"Parker's new 692 hose provides a continuous 3000 psi pressure rating for all sizes and a 4:1 safety factor, which enables this hose to work on most forklift models," said Greg Reardon, Parker Hose Products Division Business Development Manager. "And because the 692 hose is rated to -40°F, it can be used in freezer applications."
