Parflex Compact Hose Lightens the Load

Ravenna, OH - Parker Hannifin, Parflex Division, 515H Compact hose is a low pressure hose with a reduced O.D. and tighter bend radius that is able to transport the same flow capacity as hoses with larger outside diameters. Typically, a 1/4" 515H hose has a 0.100" smaller diameter than a standard hose and a 25% tighter bend radius. It is also 5 times lighter than comparable hoses. For a technician who is building multiple units each day, the light weight of 515H hose becomes an assembly advantage. And when building bundles, the weight savings is compounded.

Parflex 515H hose is exceptionally suited for routing through tight spaces while maintaining the flexibility of a more robust hose and is often used in pilot lines or joy stick applications where multiple hoses are required to fit into a tight space. Sizes range from 3/16" I.D. up to ½" I.D. in a single or multi-line assembly. Special rapid release fittings are also available.

With annual sales exceeding $10 billion, 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 52,000 people in 48 countries around the world.
