Parker 26-Series Crimp Fittings
Use Parker 26 Series Hose Fittings with the following Parker Hoses:
Parker 26 series hose fittings (hose ends) are engineered to work with select Parker transportation and refrigerant (AC) hoses. These hoses’ inside diameters (ID) are sized smaller than a typical hydraulic hose. The dash sizes of these hoses refer to a nominal hose ID size and not the actual size. For example, -4 size would normally indicate a 1/4” ID but in this case, the actual ID is 3/16”.
Because hose ends are sized to fit the hose ID, the 26 series hose fitting sizes for the hose end of the fitting are not the actual measurements but the nominal sizes – just like the hose they are designed to work with. For example, the hose end 10126-2-4 is 1/8” on the pipe thread end and 3/16” (nominal -4 size) on the hose end.
Confusing? Just remember to match the dash size of the hose fitting to the dash size of the hose. Refer to our technical pages for more information on correct hose assembly fabrication.
Parker 26 series hose fittings come standard in Chromium-6 free plated steel. Parker's Chromium-6 free fittings outlasted the competition in an independent corrosion resistance test. Some 26 series hose fittings are also available in brass. See the individual thread configuration pages (links below) for more information.
