How Parker tube fittings can benefit your processes

For guaranteed leak-free and secure connections, there are no better industrial tube fittings on the market than Parker tube fittings. As a revered name in the manufacturing world, Parker flow control equipment is synonymous with innovation – a quality that extends to their industrial tube fitting range. 

Here, Fluid Controls discusses how you can improve your processes by using high-performance tube fittings from Parker. We’ll also highlight our pick of their extensive catalogue of industrial tube fittings and what makes these Parker tube fittings stand out from the competition. 

What makes Parker industrial tube fittings so exceptional?

Parker’s leak-free industrial tube fittings are designed to meet a broad range of application and equipment requirements. As such, they are highly customisable and can be supplied in a variety of sizes, materials and configurations. Such versatility means they can be applied across a variety of industrial applications, including but not limited to hydraulic, pneumatic and instrumentation.

Offering an extended service life compared to most other industrial fittings, Parker tube fittings are manufactured to provide peak fitting performance that truly goes the distance. Above all, Parker is constantly redeveloping and redesigning their tube fittings to maintain their longevity and continually set the bar for others to match. This is achieved through a combination of exclusive and innovative components to help ensure Parker tube fittings guarantee superior performance.

These include:

  • Trap-Seal™ O-ring: Featuring a revolutionary trapezoidal shape that helps dramatically improve seal retention.
  • Robust Port Stud™: SAE adjustable connector that allows for remarkably easy assembly.
  • Superior Plating™: Boasts unrivalled corrosion and rust protection to help reduce replacement costs.

Parker Triple-Lok Fittings

Parker Triple-Lok fittings are manufactured to adhere to strict industry requirements, such as SAE J514 and ISO 8434-2 for 37° flare fittings. Featuring a simple design, Triple-Lok fittings utilise a flare at the tube end to seal and hold fluid under high pressure. This efficient design ensures that compact Parker Triple-Lok fittings incorporate the smallest seal area of all fitting types, which is only slightly larger than the fluid flow area. This results in lower assembly torque and a relatively high-pressure capability.

Triple-Lok fittings from Parker can be supplied with many different port options for the variety of internal hydraulic ports available with this tube fitting, including SAE straight thread, NPT/NPTF, BSPP, BSPT and Metric (including ISO 6149). They can also be supplied as stainless steel tube fittings, as well as brass tube fittings with working pressures of up to 517 bar.
