Parker's Polyflex 2340N-24 Subsea Hydraulic Hose Offers Cost Savings Versus Welded Pipe in Offshore Applications
The Parflex Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, announces its Polyflex 2340N-24 subsea hydraulic hose. Polyflex 2340N-24 subsea hydraulic hose is a flexible and cost-saving alternative to 1-1/2-inch welded pipe in offshore drilling operations.
The first 1-1/2-inch hydraulic hose specifically designed and certified for subsea applications up to 5000psi, Polyflex 2340N-24 hose replaces welded pipe and eliminates the need for special welding procedures and inspections, saving significant installation time while lowering installed costs.
Polyflex 2340N-24 hose is constructed with a nylon core tube, high-tensile spiral reinforcement and seawater-resistant polyurethane outer jacket. These features combine to offer a working pressure of 5000 psi (34.5 MPa) with a 4-to-1 design factor. The new hose uses Parker 8X Series 316 stainless steel fittings. Polyflex 2340N-24 hose assemblies will initially be available from the factory or from certified Parker distributors, with a field assembled option for use with Parkrimp 2 crimpers being released early third quarter of 2017. Polyflex 2340N-24 hose is API-17E and ABS approved.
"Before now, the only 1-1/2-inch hydraulic hoses available for subsea use were designed for land based industrial applications. The industry would also resort to using rigid pipe, which requires specialized labor, welding certifications and inspections," according to Angelo Piano, product sales manager for Parker's Parflex Division, which produces the new hose. "As the first purpose-built 1-1/2-inch 5000 psi hose for subsea applications, Polyflex 2340N-24 hose will withstand the rigors of the ocean environment while being much faster to install than welded pipe, saving labor costs and reducing downtime."
Polyflex 2340N-24 hose will be on display at OTC 2017 in Houston, Texas, May 1-4, in Parker booth 3639. For additional product information, contact Angelo Piano, Product Sales Manager, at (330) 298-4041, firstname.lastname@example.org.
