Parker extends its Phastite tube connection range
28 February 2020
Parker Hannifin has extended its Phastite® permanent instrumentation connection range, which is now available in a number of corrosion-resistant alloys (CRAs), including Alloy 825, 625 and Super Duplex, and in new larger sizes to suit even more applications for the oil and gas industry.
Phastite is an innovative push-fit permanent instrumentation connection that eliminates the need for welding tube up to 1 inch, providing permanent non-welded leak-free connections.
As a versatile system, Phastite is well suited for hydraulic, water and water/glycol, lubrication and other media. Phastite meets the requirements of ASME B31.1 and B31.3 and has been tested in accordance with ASTM F1387.
The connection is designed to provide optimum performance as it reduces inspection/cooling time as well as pipe repair downtime. It also eliminates weld-induced corrosion and mechanical stresses. Ultimately it offers a clean and safe assembly.
Phastite features an innovative design with built-in pipe tolerance control and metal to metal sealing. It is available in a broad range of configurations and provides a clean assembly process, requiring no lubrication.
