Parflex Multitube®

Parker Parflex Division specialises in the design and engineering of instrumentation tubing bundle solutions for processing, refineries and power generation operations.

Parker has world-class quayside manufacturing, which features five 2,200t carousels that provide ample production and storage capacity for the largest cable and umbilical projects.
Parker produces subsea power cables up to 36kV, (shown 3 x 70mm218/30(36)kV, double armored).
Parker offers the highest MBL and longest lengths available in the industry: MBL of 3,000t, 2,200m at 2,000t/MBL.
Parker produces spiral-strand steel moorings with high MBL and a maximum diameter of 215mm.
Parker engineers and manufactures high and low-voltage electro-hydraulic umbilical with fibre-optics and increased specific gravity requirements. This particular umbilical was supplied for the world's first subsea processing system.

Parflex Multitube® offers a variety of thermal control tubing products, such as steam and electric trace tubing, as well as analyser and probe support bundles. These are typically used for temperature maintenance and freeze protection in chemical processing and refineries, power generation, process control and environmental monitoring systems.

Parflex also manufactures jacketed and/or armoured metal and plastic tubing bundles. The company’s bundles are used worldwide as an ideal alternative for applications where multiple lengths of tubing are currently being installed independently. A bundled solution typically saves space within cabled trays and reduces the overall installation cost. Parflex Multitube® bundles offer protection to the individual tubes while being routed throughout a plant or facility.

The company also offers a wide range of choices for metal and plastic tubes, tubing lengths, insulation thicknesses, jacket materials and colour options.

Each tube in every length of bundle is pressure-tested at the factory prior to shipment and other testing and third-party certifications are available upon request, including ABS (American Bureau of Shipbuilding), DNV (Det Norske Veritas) and Lloyds.
