Last week, Parker Parflex Division announced new measures to ensure the availability of the 5CNG series hose.
To ensure an uninterrupted supply of Parflex 5CNG hose and hose assemblies, Parker has qualified additional braiding equipment to manufacture 5CNG-6, -8, and -16. Also, an alternate core material has been qualified for the 5CNG-16. These changes have successfully passed testing and are listed by CSA.
Most importantly there is no impact to fit, form, or function associated with these changes and the Parflex Division will be using the new core material as a running change based on demand.
