Parker Hannifin has launched its robust Universal Push-to-Connect (UPTC) connector system. Designed for tube and pipe connections, this new system is suitable for use in a number of applications. These include cases where conventional connections might fail; either due to high pressure levels and heavy vibrations, where installation conditions are rather cramped, or where assembly needs to be performed fast.

The UPTC connector system can be combined with all 24° screw fittings as per ISO 8434-1. Parker can provide prefabricated tubes and preformed pipes on request.

UPTC assembly is surprisingly quick and easy. It is simply a case of lining up the end of the pipe or tube with the system nut and plugging it in. As soon as the stainless steel retaining clip locks in place, the connection is secure and able to resist vibrations. Even after long periods of use where lots of dirt has accumulated, the system nut can be released again without having to use special tools. The nut has a corrosion-resistant Cr(VI)-free finish, is available in sizes 6–22 mm, and is designed for a nominal pressure of up to 400 bar.

The user can look at the marking to check whether the connection has been correctly assembled. If the marking is inside the nut, this clearly indicates the connection has been properly assembled and is leak-proof. The time saved in terms of assembly is a big advantage, especially where work has to be carried out in places that are difficult to access or where time is short (for example, at a conveyor belt).

Parker’s Universal Push-to-Connect System offers great protection against dirt when working outside. Coupled with its vibration-proof design, this connector system is therefore ideal for use in commercial vehicles or the hydraulic systems found in tractors. Universal Push-to-Connect is also suited for use in the construction of wind turbines and machine tools, where cramped installation conditions call for narrow connections that are easy to assemble.

DanfossWith more than one million square feet of exhibit and meeting space, the LEED Platinum-certified Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario, is the ninth-largest convention centre in North America. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, the convection centre experiences the extreme weather that the Great Lakes region is known for – with temperatures ranging from -31°C (-24°F) to 40°C (105°F).

That puts a big burden on Exhibition Place’s HVAC equipment to keep the pace comfortable for more than 5.5 million visitors attending meetings, conventions, and exhibitions throughout the year.

Motor Feature


50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source Single Phase Power Solutions introduces the 50 HP 1-to-3 Microgrid Power Source featuring a patented BELLE Motor with Written-Pole technology to deliver three-phase power from single-phase utility service. The 50 HP 1-to-3 can be used to operate a 25 HP motor three-phase motor, and multiple other motors up the remaining 25 HP of capacity. Ideal for areas without three-phase service, this revolutionary approach eliminates the high fuel and maintenance costs, and the pollution of fossil-fuel-powered Gen-Sets, while delivering superior power quality to that of a conventional phase converter.  It is far more cost effective than extending 3-phase power where it is not currently available.
