Parker M8 E-Z Flex Hybrid hose

M8- E-Z Flex Hybrid Hose from Parker Hannifin is designed to incorporate the best of thermoplastic and rubber hose constructions.

Parker E-Z Flex M8Offering 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. This design allows for a smaller O.D., creating a tighter bend radius and easier handling.

The bend radius for a 5/8” I.D. E-Z flex hose is only 4 inches. Competing rubber hoses of the same size I.D. need at least 8 inches. Not only does the smaller O.D. allow for a tighter bend, but 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 strong 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.

E-Z Flex hoses are available from the Parflex Division in sizes 3/8” I.D. to 5/8” I.D. as a hose assembly or in long continuous lengths for on-site crimping.
