General Purpose Hydraulic Quick Couplers | Parker 60 Series

Parker 60 Series Hydraulic Couplers Key Features

  • Large flow areas machined into the body of the Parker 60 Series couplers and nipples facilitate flow around the valve, resulting in a high flow capacity.
  • The perch maintains valve alignment and provides positive metal to metal valve stop to ensure that the valves open fully, every time.
  • Captive valve seal assures “bubble tight” poppet sealing. The valve seal is positively captured by the metal poppet to minimize seal washout or damage by high velocity fluid.
  • Hardened nipples and sleeves (steel) and solid barstock construction make for a quality coupling with maximum resistance to damage from hydraulic and mechanical shock.
  • The seal is designed to withstand high pressures and provide reliable sealing. A wide selection of optional seal materials are available for 60 Series couplers and nipples.
  • Steel versions if 60 Series couplings feature PTFE back-up rings that support mating seals for high pressure applications. Brass couplers have a double O-ring seal for redundancy in low pressure, vacuum and steam applications.
  • Durable ball-locking mechanism assures reliable connection, every time. A large number of locking balls distributes the work load evenly while providing alignment and swiveling action to reduce hose torque and prolong hose life.
  • Parker 60 Series couplings are manufactured from brass, steel and stainless steel as standard materials. A wide range of seals allow these couplings to be used with a broad range of media.
  • Straight Thread (ORB) end configurations are available as standard.
  • Parker 60 Series couplings comply with ISO 7241, Series B Standard.
