The Parflex Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, a leader in motion and control technologies, announces its HCR subsea hydraulic hose. HCR hose is a high collapse resistant subsea hose specifically designed to withstand the collapse forces found in deep sea hydraulic applications including subsea hydraulics, BOP stacks, well stimulation and hydraulic flying leads. Without relying on system pressure, HCR Hose is collapse resistant to 10,000 ft. (3,048 m) seawater at a 1.5 design factor and meets ISO13628-5:2009 and API 17E standards.
According to the company, the Parflex HCR hose also offers the most compact bend radius available as well as a unique combination of innovative features, including:
- Enables tighter routings and easier installation due to its compact bend radius that is nearly half that of comparable offerings.
- Is available in blue, yellow, black and green for easy color coding. Parflex HCR hose is the industry’s only multicolor offering, making it especially useful in BOP applications
- Is the only high collapse resistant subsea hydraulic hose available with a choice of JIC or sub-seal (dual seal) fittings
HCR Hose is constructed with a flexible stainless steel interlocking carcass, a seamless polyamide core tubing, aramid fiber braid reinforcement, and an abrasion and seawater-resistant polyurethane cover. HCR Hose will be on display in Parker booth number 3639 at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas, April 30-May 3, 2018.
