Item Information

Whether you need a hydraulic hose replacement or are building new equipment, Parflex low-temperature hoses offer optimum hose flexibility in operating environments with low ambient temperatures. Designed to withstand and perform successfully in low temperatures, these hoses are ideal for applications that involve hydraulic forklifts in cold or refrigerated areas, aerial lift construction trucks, agriculture equipment in cold climates, or material handling equipment in commercial freezers. Parflex low temperature hoses also feature a 10%-30% smaller O.D. than rubber and are up to 70% lighter. Similar to 3TR18/30CT hose but with a lower operating temperature (-70°F).
