Parker expands tube fitting range

At Offshore Europe, Parker Instrumentation will expand its family of rapid-assembly, compression tube fittings for pressures up to 15,000 PSI. New half-inch sizes provide an ideal solution for handling the high tensile, duplex and super-duplex tubing often favoured for running down high pressure, deepwater wells. MPI tube fittings are based on the familiar, industry-standard compression assembly technique. This allows a fitting to be installed in seconds by simply tightening a nut, eliminating the time-consuming “coning and threading” practices that usually need to be performed in the field when applying traditional medium-to-high pressure fittings. Using MPI fittings, instrumentation engineers working in deepwater exploration and production areas can now assemble tubing systems in a tiny fraction of the time previously required. They also avoid the need for specialised training in installing traditional high pressure fittings, and the close attention to quality control procedures typically required during assembly.
The new product extends the MPI sizes Parker offers for small instrumentation tubing applications, adding a half inch option to the existing choices of 1/4, 3/8 and 9/16 inches. The fittings are available in a variety of shapes and flow arrangements including straight connections, elbow and tee joints, bulkhead unions, reducers and adapting interfaces.
