New High Pressure Hydraulic Hose Replaces Rubber Hose in Oil and Gas Applications

New High Pressure Hydraulic Hose Replaces Rubber Hose Applications - Oil Rig - Parker Parflex DivisionProducts used in the rigorous oil and gas industry must be resilient and of high quality to properly support these complex operations. Hoses and connections need to be safe, versatile and efficient. The rubber hose has its limitations when used in harsh environments. One of the issues is inner tube blistering. The blisters are caused by fluid over time permeating into the rubber core tube. When the pressure is released quickly, the fluid tries to escape quickly and damages the rubber core tube causing blisters that in turn cause leak paths in the core tube. 

Parker has developed a high-pressure hose specifically for subsea applications. The core tube is made of nylon which is time and field proven to work in subsea applications, and it is chemically compatible with subsea control fluids.


The flexible alternative to 1-1/2” I.D.

The Polyflex 2340N-24 Hose is specifically designed for subsea applications in the oil and gas market. It is a flexible hose that meets API 17E and ABS requirements. The seamless, extruded Polyamide core tube has a wide range of media compatibility, making it suitable for blow out preventer (BOP) equipment and many other offshore drilling applications. New High Pressure Hydraulic Hose Replaces Rubber Hose Applications - 2340N - Parker Parflex DivisionThe high tensile steel reinforcement provides a full 5000 psi working pressure at 4:1 design factor. These features, combined with the sea-water resistant polyurethane jacket, offer a hose solution that withstands the rigors of the oil and gas industry and exceeds industry standard requirements. It is also available in long, continuous lengths. This is important because it reduces connection points, which reduces leak points, reduces set up time and allows for smoother routing of the assembly. Fewer connection points mean better flow. 

The 2340N hose serves multiple applications in the oil and gas industry, such as BOP stack, acidizing, well stimulation, cementing and land or subsea based hydraulic systems. For more detailed information please reference the product data sheet for 2340N-24 Polyflex High Pressure Hydraulic Hose for the oil and gas market.
