Industrial hose is a broad category of rubber hose intended for industrial use. Rubber hose is a reference to the outer cover of the hose and not the inner tube material.
IMPORTANT! Industrial hoses cannot be used in place of hydraulic hoses or pneumatic hoses. Parker’s Industrial Hose Division manufactures 153 different industrial rubber hoses, so you will have no problem finding the hose that fits your application. Parker also provides engineering and manufacturing expertise to ensure the performance and safety of its industrial rubber hoses.
Most rubber hose manufacturers in the industrial hose industry only manufacture rubber hoses. They do not have the expertise necessary to design and manufacture fittings and clamps as well. Since there are no standards for industrial hoses, like there are for automotive hoses for example, various rubber hoses and fittings from different manufacturers are often used in the same industrial hose assembly. This means that many industrial hoses cannot be guaranteed since each component is from a different manufacturer.
Parker’s industrial hose assemblies, on the other hand, can be guaranteed because Parker is committed to vigorously testing its rubber hoses to validate their performance with hose ends from different manufacturers. Tests include coupling pull-off, impulse, cold bend, electrical conductivity, tensile strength, flex, flex impulse and more.
Visit the Parker CrimpSource website to find out which fittings work with your Parker industrial hose, and the corresponding crimp specifications.
Parker’s Circle of Safety is another tool to help customers select the right industrial hose, fittings and proper fabrication methods.
Parker’s Industrial Hose Division is dedicated to fast delivery and usually ships industrial hose orders to distributors within 24 to 48 hours.
NOTE: Parker has refiined its industrial hose selection and updated the catalog. This section will be updated as the new information becomes available. [Nov 2011]
