Parker releases EFS Engineered Flange Hose Seal

August 8, 2014 - Parker releases EFS Engineered Flange Seal to reduce rework and eliminate frustration of replacing standard O-rings in hose product installations.. Designed to fit in the grooves of Parker Hannifin’s Code 61 and Code 62 Flanges, EFS helps eliminate the problems that plague standard O-rings, which are prone to pop out of the flange groove. EFS provides consistently strong seal retention. The rounded design of standard O-rings has an unnatural fit in the flanges, leaving a gap in the groove. This gap can lead to difficult installation, hose assembly leakage, and the potential for the O-ring to fall out. The shape of the EFS reduces the possibility of pop out and the need to replace or reinstall the O-ring, eliminating costly leakage and time-consuming pre-assembly handling. The secure, engineered design of the EFS benefits all high-pressure applications, and fluid power professionals can expect reduced downtime and rework after installation. EFS product features include:

  • Secure seal retention before, during, and after installation
  • Quick assembly with no tooling or lubrication needed
  • Reduced risk of seal damage and leakage
  • Ability to withstand working temperature of up to 257°F
  • 90 Durometer nitrile

EFS is ideally suited for high-pressure applications in construction, agriculture, forestry, industrial, mining, and many other markets.
