Parker's Quick Coupling Division has been supplying quality products to the marketplace since it's inception. With five manufacturing facilities on two continents, Parker QCD manufactures hydraulic and pneumatic products designed to meet the demanding requirements of a wide variety of applications in a host of markets including Agriculture, Automotive, Chemical, Off-Shore Oil, Pulp and Paper, Printing and Publishing, Plastics, Public Utilities, Construction, Alternative Fuels and others.
Pneumatic Automation Connectors
Compact, lightweight, composite fittings commonly used in pneumatic automation applications. The most economical push-to-connect choices as well as integrated fittings, flow control and check valves. Nylon and Polyurethane tubing available in multiple transparent and opaque colors for system color-coding.
Parker push-to-connect and barb full flow profile fittings for water applications are suitable for water, potable liquids, and neutral gas applications.
They offer high chemical resistance to such things as chlorine, cleaning agents, and UV. Made of an engineered polymer for superior mechanical strength and chemical resistance, Parker ball valves offer an innovative design for maximum capability and optimum performance.
Robust all-brass or light-weight, composite push-to-connect fittings meet SAE J2494 and D.O.T. specifications. Designed for all D.O.T. truck and trailer applications, Parker PTC fittings reduce assembly time versus compression style fittings by 90%. Parker’s transportation connection solutions include:
- Encapsulated cartridges
- NTA fittings
- Air Brake fittings
- Transmission fittings
- Drain cocks
- Truck valves
- Lanyard valves
- Airbrake Nylon Tubing
Parker Compact, pre-assembled compression fittings are designed for fast assembly. Flared and inverted flare fittings for a metal-to-metal seal. Pipe fittings meet all functional SAE J512 industry requirements.
These High-duty fittings are ideal for oil, coolant or lubrication systems. Ball valves are available in brass, stainless steel and carbon steel in sizes from 1/8” to 3”.
Parker PLM fittings with a high phosphorus nickel coating conform to FDA standards. Excellent resistance to high pressure, temperature and aggressive washdown fluids make PLM fittings an ideal solution in applications involving direct contact with food products. The push-to-connect ends reduce assembly time by as much as 30 seconds per assembly when compared to standard
compression type fittings.
- Excellent resistance to high pressure and vacuum
- Materials conform to FDA standards
- Polymer components meet UL 94 V-0 flammability requirements
- Spring collet gripping for long term resistance
- Can be used in the food industry
- All PLM fittings are Silicone free
Fittings that come in contact with food must be corrosion resistant, non-toxic, non-absorbent and capable of being washed and disinfected. The hygienic design of the Parker PLS fittings reduce the retention zones for safe and easy cleaning. In order to guarantee quality, traceability and performance, Parker PLS fittings offer 100% unit control and dating of the manufactured components.
- 316L stainless steel body
- 303L stainless steel collet
- FKM o-ring resistant to the majority of aggressive chemicals
- Smooth polished surface
- Materials conform to FDA standards
- All PLS fittings are Silicone free
SensoNODE Wireless Monitoring Sensors
Parker’s SensoNODE Low Energy Wireless Monitoring Sensors and SensoNODE mobile iOS application are the first in a family of products for monitoring pressure, temperature, and humidity in liquid and gas applications. The SensoNODE family puts data in the palms of users’ hands, helping to predict problems and prevent downtime in a variety of equipment and facility applications, thus saving time and money on costly labor or repairs.
Developed with the mobile worker in mind, Parker’s wireless sensors eliminate the constraints of traditional wired sensors in everyday applications. Small in size and easily installed, the wireless sensors offer a sealed sensor housing to facilitate sensor location in challenging environments where a wired sensor platform is impractical or impossible. There are three individual sensor options that can monitor pressure, temperature, and humidity and transmit live readings to a nearby iOS device. This allows the user to track system performance to predict problems and prevent costly downtime. The sensors are compatible with a wide range of liquid and gas applications. They are optimized for low power consumption and run on a standard coin cell battery. The iOS app is available as a free download from the App Store.
