Ravenna, OH, Jan. 2012 – Parker Hannifin’s M8- E-Z Flex® Hybrid Hose is designed to incorporate the best of thermoplastic and rubber hose constructions, offering a robust hose to handle high pressure applications without compromising flexibility. E-Z Flex Hose offers a two-wire braid construction with four-spiral wire hose performance, allowing a tighter bend radius and easier handling. The bend radius for a 5/8” I.D. E-Z flex hose is 4 inches whereas competing rubber hoses of the same size need at least 8 inches. Not only does the smaller O.D. allow for a tighter bend, but it means the E-Z Flex hose is lighter, making is easier to route.
E-Z Flex hoses are mechanically bonded, rather than chemically bonded, creating a hose with a low volumetric expansion. This robust design allows E-Z Flex hose to handle synthetic and water-based fluids longer than comparable hoses, minimizing in-service problems and maximizing service life. Clean tubes reduce the need for expensive cleaning/flushing of hose assemblies.
With annual sales exceeding $12 billion in fiscal year 2011, Parker Hannifin is the world’s leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs approximately 58,000 people in 47 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 55 consecutive fiscal years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index.
