Parker offers the largest selection of hoses and fittings in more sizes than any other manufacturer on the market today. From braided and multi-purpose to their signature Parkrimp range, Parker hydraulic hose fittings have been meticulously designed and strenuously tested to meet numerous global industry standards.
It can be difficult for first-time buyers to determine which Parker hose fitting is the right one for their application’s unique requirements. Hose fittings from Parker are broken down into three distinct categories: low pressure, medium pressure and high-pressure fittings. Below, we’ve listed the most popular Parker hydraulic hose fitting types to match each pressure type.
Parker’s Push-Lok hose fitting series is tailor-made for low-pressure industrial applications. The easy-to-use, intelligent Push-Lok system features the widest fluid compatibility range found anywhere on the market, with pressure ranges of up to 2.8 MPa.

Since 1980, Parker’s Parkrimp brand of crimp fittings has gone from strength to strength thanks to their ability to eliminate hose cover skiving and achieve the metal-to-metal grip of factory assemblies – revolutionising the process for markets worldwide.
Today, Parker crimp fittings are recognised as the industry standard for medium and high-pressure hose fittings with pressure ratings of 45 and 69 MPa. Parker’s medium pressure crimp fittings are suitable for mobile and industrial hydraulics, while high-pressure crimp hose fittings work best in heavy-duty applications.
Made from Parker’s family of crimpers, Parkrimp’s No Skive one-piece series of hydraulic crimper fittings are the go-to system for fast and leak-free hose assemblies. Adhering to SAE J1273 and ISO 17165 requirements, Parkrimp medium pressure fittings include the 46 and 48 series, while high-pressure fittings include their 70 series.
