Is Parker FET Series for you?

Parker FET Series QC
  • Does your equipment...
    • Include high-pressure quick disconnects?
    • Require connecting/disconnecting hydraulic lines under high pressure?
    • Require the added security of a threaded connection?
    • Operate in a moist/corrosive environment?
  • Do you support parts manufactured in the USA?
  • Do you currently use Stucchi VEP Series or similar couplers?
 

 

If you answered “YES” to any of the above, Parker FET Series Quick Couplers may be right for you.

The new Parker FET series Quick Couplers are built specifically for the following applications:

  • Heavy impact construction equipment
  • Forestry equipment
  • Oil and gas on-shore drilling, and
  • Other high-impact high-pressure applications where connecting and disconnecting under pressure, as well as security of a threaded connection, are essential.

Parker FET Series quick couplers are rated to 6,000 psi. They can be connected under pressure up to 5,000 psi, and disconnected under pressure up to 2,500 psi.


Parker FET Series quick couplers are directly interchangeable with Stucchi VEP Series, and offer additional advantages over Stucchi VEP Series quick disconnects:
  • Higher connect-under-pressure rating – 5,000 psi for parker FET Series versus 3,625 psi for Stucchi VEP couplers.
  • Higher corrosion resistance – 400 hours to red rust in standard testing for Parker FET Series versus 240 hours for Stucchi VEP Series couplers.

With a durable brinell resistant design and a unique stainless steel valve, the Parker FET couplers provide a new level of performance in the coupler industry. Made in the USA, FET Series couplers are conveniently interchangeable with similar European style thread-to-connect couplers.
