This product has proven to be very effective in eliminating leakage at the higher pressures found in today’s hydraulic systems. The Seal-Lok fitting is an O-ring face seal type fitting that consists of a nut, a body, an O-ring and a sleeve. When the fitting is assembled, it compresses the O-ring to provide a leak tight seal.
This is the most widely used fitting in the world! It’s appeal is in its simplicity, compact design, ease of assembly, reliability, material availability, adaptability to inch or metric tube, world-wide availability and acceptance. It is used in virtually every application that uses fluid power for motion control.
The Ferulok fitting design utilizes a combination of proven European features, coupled with many innovated product improvements. The Ferulok fitting is a flareless fitting that consists of a body, a one-piece precision machined ferrule, and a nut.
The EO fittings are the most widely used bite type fittings in the world. This is a flareless metric fitting (for metric tube) that consists of a body, a progressive ring (ferrule) and a nut. On assembly, two cutting edges of the progressive ring “bite” into the outer surface of the tube ensuring necessary holding power and seal for high operating pressures.
Pipe Fittings & Port Adapters
This contains adapters with thread types including: NPT, NPTF, BSPT, BSPP, SAE, UN/UNF, and Metric. Parker Fluid Connector products made from steel and brass, for the most part, have NPTF Threads. Stainless steel products may have NPT or slightly modified NPT threads to minimize chance of galling the assembly.
Pipe Swivel connections are one of the most traditional types of hydraulic connections. NPSM swivel adapters add versatility to male NPT hose and adapter connections. They are expecially suited for manufacturers and end users that rely on the versatility. Parker offers a full line of NPSM pipe swivel adapters. 14 configurations are available as standard, many of which are available in steel and stainless steel.
Japansese Industrial Standard adapters were introduced in the early 1990s to address market requirements for OEM and replacement fittings. These fittings are typically used as hose adapters on equipment designed and/or manufactured in Japan or Korea. Parker’s JIS adapters are designed with a 30º flare and 60º cone connections and typically incorporate BSP threads.
K4 BSP Adapters
These fittings are typically used as hose adapters on equipment designed and/or manufactured throughout Europe, especially equipment with ties to the UK, Scandanavia, the Netherlands, Spain and Italy. The metal-to-metal sealing is achieved by a single line of contact between the conical surface of the 60º cone seat and the corresponding surface of the ballnose or cone swivel.
Komatsu Style Adapters
The 30º flare, metric thread interface, also known as the Komatsu style flare fitting, is one of the most common specialized OEM mobile equipment fittings in the marketplace. Parker offers a line of caps, plugs, and conversion adapters to mate with this specialty connection. The Komatsu style connection is generally rated at 4000 psi.
