Plug and Play Hose System Quickly Connects Hose Fittings and Adapters

Plug and Play Hose System Quickly Connects Hose Fittings and Adapters

The Plug and Play Hose system consists of Parflex 515H hose and the Parker RA (Rapid Assembly) quick connecting hose fittings and adapters. Parflex 515H hose is a light weight, fiber reinforced, low pressure thermoplastic hose that has great kink resistance. Typically, a A.25 inch 515H hose has a 20 percent smaller diameter than a standard 100R1 hose and a 25 percent tighter bend radius. It is also 5 times lighter than comparable hoses.

The brass RA quick connect fittings offer plug and play convenience in a very compact, anti-corrosive and economical system. The connector design is simple, durable and easy to install, eliminating the need for wrenches or other tools. However, the RA series fittings are not live swivels and care should be taken to insure that relative movement between the adapter and the hose fitting is eliminated. Sealing is achieved through the use of petroleum and synthetic hydraulic oil resistant elastomeric o-rings.

Parflex 515H hose is useful 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 A.50 inch I.D. in a single or multi-line assembly.
