The 30° flare, metric thread interface, also known as the Komatsu style flare fitting, is one of the most common specialized OEM mobile equipment fittings in the marketplace. Parker offers a line of caps, plugs and conversion adapters to mate with this specialty connection. Parker’s line of products is designated as “KA” adapters.
The Komatsu style connection is generally rated at 4000 psi (280 kg/cm2 or 27.5 Mpa). Parker’s caps, plugs and conversion adapters are rated at the full pressure rating in sizes 4-16, with slight pressure reductions in the less common sizes of -20 and -24
Parker’s offering of Komatsu style adapters allow for more aftermarket flexibility. Parker’s caps and plugs enable technicians to protect critical sealing surfaces of hoses and adapters from damage and contamination. This protection is important during testing, repair and/or implement installation and removal.
Parker’s line of Komatsu style conversion adapters are ideal for emergency situations, field repair, or “plumbing in” hydraulic attachments and options. Parker’s exclusive swivel nut design minimizes the sealing surface damage to mating components
