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.
Starting on August 16th, 2021 changes will be made to all Transair wall brackets, and starting on October 18th, 2021 changes will be made to the wall bracket with ball valves and the 1” and 1- 1/2” ball valves.
The parts with the new coating will be shipped from Parker to its distributors to fulfill orders once the current stock has been depleted. There will not be changes to the part numbers or pricing at this time.
The list of parts affected by the change is below:
