SOURCE: Parker Hose Division, August 11, 2021

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.

The Differences Between AN and JIC 37° Flare Fittings

Tue, Aug 03, 2021 @ 11:27 AM / by Marek Bobik posted in technical


Author: Burleigh Bailey, senior project engineer, Parker Tube Fittings Division

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 Temporarily Changes GlobalCore Hose Layline

Tue, Jul 27, 2021 @ 07:21 AM / by Marek Bobik posted in product update


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.
