Have a Parker or Gates Hydraulic Hose Crimper on Site but Want to Run Danfoss Hoses? 

Have a Parker or Gates Hydraulic Hose Crimper on Site but Want to Run Danfoss Hoses? 

Moving from a Parker or Gates hydraulic hose set-up to Danfoss (formerly Eaton)? Need a safe and effective way to make the transition?  

Unlike field attachable fittings that only require a wrench and a vise, permanent crimp fittings for heavy-duty applications require a crimping machine to attach the hose to the fitting. If you are currently running a Parker or Gates crimping machine and need to repair Danfoss hoses, you need a solution that allows you to make factory-quality hose assemblies onsite.  

Since hydraulic fittings are the weakest links in your hose assembly, we recommend against mixing and matching manufacturer hose assembly components to avoid dangerous and expensive leaks. 

It is possible to use a Parker or Gates hydraulic hose crimper to crimp Danfoss hoses, as long as you use the correct dies and fittings. However, it is important to note that different manufacturers may have different crimp specifications, so it is important to verify that the crimp specifications for Danfoss hoses are compatible with the Parker or Gates crimper you are using. 

However, by using the Danfoss conversion kit you can effectively convert your existing Parker or Gates crimping machine to meet the specifications of the Danfoss hose line. Now, Danfoss tooling, hoses and hose ends can be used in conjunction with your existing crimper, saving money on equipment and tooling costs.

Before crimping the Danfoss hoses, you should also ensure that you have the correct Danfoss fittings and hoses that are designed to work together. It is also recommended that you follow the crimping instructions and guidelines provided by Danfoss to ensure a proper and secure crimp.
