Parker's Plug and Play Hose system features a quick-to-connect hose and fitting for hydraulic and pneumatic systems
Parker Hannifin, Parflex Division, has designed a quick-to-connect hose and fitting system for low-pressure hydraulic and pneumatic systems. The Plug and Play Hose system consists of Parflex 515H hose and the Parker RA (Rapid Assembly) hose fittings and adapters.
Parflex 515H hose is a lightweight, fiber-reinforced, low-pressure thermoplastic hose that is designed for kink resistance. The brass RA quick-connect fittings are engineered for plug-and-play convenience. The connector design eliminates the need for wrenches or other tools. However, the RA series fittings are not live swivels and care should be taken to insure that relative movement between the adapter and the hose fitting is eliminated. Sealing is achieved through the use of petroleum and synthetic hydraulic oil resistant elastomeric O-rings. Sizes range from 3/16 inch I.D. up to ½ inchh I.D. in a single- or multi-line assembly.
