Parker Hoses Provide Extreme Flexibility Without Reducing Flow

Ravenna, OH -- Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, is exhibiting their extremely flexible polyurethane hoses at Pack Expo 2013. 83FR DuraGard is a non-conductive, weld spatter resistant polyurethane hose, often used in robotic assembly applications. Ultralite Superbraid polyurethane air hose is 29% lighter than equivalent thermoplastic air hoses and 63% lighter than rubber. Both are compact and offer an extremely tight bend radius without reducing the flow of media traveling through the core tube.

Parker polyurethane hoses are offered with permanent fittings or convenient push-on fittings. Ultra-Lite Superbraid® utilizes a strain relief that allows the hose to bend freely without kinking at the fitting. Standard sizes range from 1/4” to 3/4” I.D., depending on selection, and the products are available from the Parflex Division in Ravenna, Ohio. Custom sizes and colors are available upon request. Visit us at booth S-7722, Pack Expo 2013, 9/23-9/25, 2013.
