Parker Hannifin is launching its 2030T-V70CON convoluted PTFE hose, provided by the Polymer Hose Division Europe. It is said to be ideal for a wide range of demanding applications, such as those involving aggressive media, high pressure, mechanical stress, high temperature, corrosion, or UV. Parker says other hose types reach their limits and often fail when faced with these challenges.
Through a combination of advanced design and optimised materials, Parker says the result is a solution for even the most challenging of hose applications, which include industrial machinery such as injection moulding machines and tyre presses, as well as transportation, off-highway mobile machines, engines, and fluid transfer and handling systems.
The fully qualified 2030T-V70CON hose is resistant to temperatures from -70°C to +230°C to cover a wide range of extreme uses. Moreover, the new convoluted PTFE hose is said to offer excellent chemical resistance, making it suitable for a broad spread of demanding roles involving aggressive media. The new convoluted PTFE hose is suitable for use with chemicals and gas, as well as hydraulic oils, water, air, and steam.
Further benefits include the use of stainless steel braiding (grade 304) as the reinforcement material, which means no corrosion in wet or moist environments, while its small bend radius eases installation and makes the hose suitable for use in tight areas without kinking. As a final point of note, Parker says the hose assembly process is easy and safe thanks to a one-piece fitting crimped over the full sleeve length.
The new 2030T-V70CON convoluted PTFE hose is available in eight inside diameters extending from 6 mm (0.25 inch) to 32.5 mm (1.25 inch).
