Parker Twinhammer Bonded Air/Water Jackhammer Hose System Delivers Both Air and Water in a Single Configuration

The Industrial Hose Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has launched a new hose system designed to assist construction and rental equipment companies, state and local government agencies and those who employ jackhammer and breaker operators to easily, effectively and safely comply with a new OSHA Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS) standard.

Parker Twinhammer™ hose is the first factory-assembled dual hose system that delivers both air and water in a single, bonded twin-line configuration for dust suppression in heavy duty pneumatic jackhammer applications.

Twinhammer hose assemblies feature durable, chemically bonded and abrasion resistant lines that enable efficient installation and kink-resistant handling that easily negotiates debris and obstacles, eliminating the need for intrusive clamps, straps, tape or other devices to join distinct air and water hoses.

The assemblies incorporate maintenance-free permanent crimped universal fittings for easy connection/disconnection to the air supply, and rust-resistant brass male NPT couplings for attachment to the water supply and spray apparatus.

The new twin line hose system concurrently:

  • transfers air to power heavy duty pneumatic jackhammers
  • transfers water to suppress silica dust produced by tool operation
  • helps create a safer and more efficient work environment

“Parker has reacted quickly to develop and deploy an efficient wet-spray hose solution designed as an integral component of an OSHA-compliant silica dust suppression system,” said Alex James, product sales manager, Parker Industrial Hose Division. “The Parker Twinhammer hose dual air and water lines feature a stable, unitized design that allows fit-to-need adjustment for easy attachment to air and water sources. The adjustment also allows easy attachment to jackhammers on the other end of the hose.”

Parker has also introduced a hose spray kit to transfer water from the supply hose to the jackhammer tool bit. The kit provides efficient and consistent water angle, distance, flow and spray pattern for effective silica dust control.

Twinhammer hose is identified as Series 7084 in Parker nomenclature. Product information is available at the Series 7084 page on A Parker Summary Guide with OSHA regulatory information is also available for download.
