Tube Fittings Division

Parker Tube Fittings Division manufactures leak-free hydraulic connections, superior corrosion-free tube fittings, hose adapters and tube fabrication equipment for reliable leak-free connection solutions for most high pressure and high temperature hydraulic applications. From O-Ring Face Seal (ORFS) fittings, 37° flare JIC tube fittings, flat face seal fittings, conversion adapters for tube and hose connections, to hydraulic benders and Parflange® flaring and flanging system, Parker delivers unfailing solutions to a wide range of industries and applications.

The Next Level in Corrosion Protection

ToughShield™ Plus is our new patent-pending standard zinc-nickel plating on all steel tube fittings and adapters worldwide. It provides significant improvement to corrosion resistance versus other available plating technologies. This means end users benefit from less frequent and easier maintenance, extended fitting service life, and increased resistance to the migration of rust to adjacent components. For manufacturers, it means a decrease in warranty claims and aesthetic quality concerns due to corrosion.

ToughShield Plus is the first fluid power industry commercially available standard plating system to provide up to 3,000 hours of resistance to red corrosion per ASTM B117 neutral salt spray testing.
