WEB EXCLUSIVE: Parker Hannifin in Germany replaced steel components in its RSD quick coupling with a single injection molded part of Victrex PEEK engineering resin from Victrex plc (U.S. office in West Conshohocken, Pa.). RSD quick-connect couplings are used to connect hydraulic lines on a tractor to its trailer, plough, or other equipment without use of tools. They must withstand pressure up to 250 bar (3626 psi) and flow rates up to 190 l/min (50.2 gal/min) at up to 120 C/248 F. Parker Hannifin reduced the number of steel components with a PEEK valve clip due to its strength, elasticity, and fatigue resistance.
