Specialty Industrial Hoses | Parker | SUPER-FLEX® FL-7 Barrier Fuel Line Hose | 389 Series


SUPER-FLEX-389

Series 389 is a fuel line/vapor emission hose for refined fuels such as biodiesel (to B20 in dedicated and non-dedicated service), diesel, ethanol and gasoline. The hose incorporates a THV barrier to resist permeation, multiple aramid plies of reinforcement forcoupling retention, durability and kink resistance, and the cover is resistant to abrasion, oil and weathering. The hose is flexible for easy routing in and around small engines and small engine compartments. Series 389 surpasses all of the California Air Resource Board (CARB)/Small Off-Road Engine (SORE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stringent permeation requirements of 15g/m2/day. It also meets or exceeds SAEJ30R7 and SAE J30R14T2 specifications and is compatible with Parker SAE J2044 and J2045 Push-to-Connect fittings.

Note: Do not use in marine fuel applications. Refer to Series 7165.
