560TJ | Parker Parflex Thermoplastic Hose

The Parflex 560TJ (TOUGHJACKET™) hose is ideal for large-scale, heavy-duty applications such as construction equipment and material handling equipment. This compact, lightweight hose is available in long lengths, which makes it ideal for over the sheave applications. The abrasion resistant cover and durable wire construction allow the Parker 560TJ hose to handle the strains of the most demanding applications.

Parker's TOUGHJACKET™ hose covers are designed with a material that exceeds the abrasion resistance of comparable hoses by more than 100%. These rugged polyurethane hose covers also feature a low length change under pressure (+/- 2%). With a resilient, abrasion resistant cover and up to 3600 psi constant working pressure, this TOUGHJACKET™ solution has the ability to transform and enhance current systems.

Note: The Parker 560R hose has been converted to the 560TJ TOUGHJACKET™ construction.

Note: Parker's Parflex division has announced a new resin approved for use in the manufacturing of their Hybrid 2.0 and TOUGHJACKET™ hose. The addition of this new copolyester inner tube material will allow Parker to insure a stable supply of product for customers. Hoses that are made with this material will meet the same specifications that can be found in the current 4660 catalog and will not change in form or function. This change will begin in November 2017 and is expected to be fully implemented in 2018.


How to Order


Hose and hose fittings series must be correctly matched. Using any fittings other than those specifically designated by the hose manufacturer for use with each specific hose can lead to hose assembly failure. Hose assembly failures have lead to damage, injury and death.
