We receive many requests regarding seal retention, but why is it so important? There are three main reasons: ease of component assembly, serviceability, and transit issues.
We respect and appreciate your service to our country
Structural adhesives offer many advantages over traditional bonding methods such as riveting, welding, or taping.

Parker's Quick Couplers Division announced last Friday a change to their part numbering system:
Keeping your machinery downtime to a minimum is something we strive for with all our customers. Remote condition monitoring is great for implementing predictive maintenance. A fleet of sensors measures and records crucial data immediately so you can find issues well before they become more harmful, and the Voice of the Machine software provides intuitive analytics of your whole system. Together, the sensors and the software give plant and equipment maintenance managers a clear view of the system performance and alert them to components needing attention.
The Parker Hose Products Division announced yesterday dimensional changes affecting four 77 Series 90° elbow fittings.

The terms Preventive maintenance and Predictive maintenance are often used interchangeably but are considerably different. Understanding the difference can help you come up with a better maintenance plan, and save you time and money in the long run.

Parker Hose Division announced that another batch of the 43-series 90˚ elbow fittings is joining a growing list of their Monoblok™ parts. Monoblok parts are machined from a single piece of metal instead of brazing parts together.
Machining fittings as a complete part eliminates the potential for leak paths and decreases the overall dimension, making hose assemblies a little easier to route through tight spots.
You know Gold Cup Heavy-Duty Pumps and Motors as a gold standard in the industry for technical excellence in hydrostatic transmission applications in marine, drilling, and shredding applications, among others.
You probably also know that the tried-and-true design incorporates features such as, integral servo and replenishing pump, a hot oil shuttle, and a unique servo control system; all of which combine to provide a rugged self-contained package that can withstand the harshest of conditions and continue to perform with trouble-free long life.
But here are six lesser-known features and benefits of Gold Cup's, heavy-duty hydrostatic piston pumps and motors:
Parker announced this week to their distributor network, that it will be updating the coating of Transair wall brackets, wall brackets with ball valves, and valves. The coating will change to cataphoresis coating instead of the black zinc used on the current parts. The cataphoresis coating will improve corrosion resistance.
In June 2021, Parker's Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation (IGFG) Division released a new warranty for their CGGC Business Unit nitrogen generators.

Over the years, we have received quite a few inquiries regarding "AN" fittings. AN (Air Force - Navy Aeronautical Standard) and AND (Air Force - Navy Aeronautical Design Standard) are standards used by the U.S. Military in aviation applications. AN fittings are manufactured to meet the above standards. These fittings include the 37° flare, flareless, hose connections, "banjo" type fittings, specialized flange fittings, pipe fittings, and other types of connections. There are many frequently asked questions about AN 37° flare fittings and how they relate to their industrial 37° flare counterpart, the SAE/ISO 37° flare fittings, so I thought I would share the background and differences between these fittings.

Parker's Hose Products Division announced the use of an alternate layline. The supply chain challenges have forced the change, so it is temporary, but Parker warns that it could remain intermittent as supply chain challenges persist with their original branding material.
The alternate branding is an inkjet label, identical to the current branding method for the Push-Lok 801 hose. The temporary layline lacks the color branding, but it contains all the same information as the original design.
The change will impact the 302, 387, 387TC, and 487 series hoses.
Parker Parflex Division recently announced rationalization of the thermoplastic hose offering. In January, Parflex launched the new series 510D hose and added sizes -10 and -16 to their 518D series offering.
