Seats Inc. has announced that its I3
Series seats are now certified to ISO 7096,
EM9, confirming compliance with vibra-
tion requirements critical to performance
in European markets. The I3 Series was
recently certified to the EM9 classification at
an independent engineering test facility, the
The I3 Series seats target a range of
machines, such as skid-steer loaders, com-
mercial turf equipment and other light-duty
industrial equipment. The seat incorporates
an integrated, 3 in. low-profile suspension
and is available with a mechanical suspension (I3M) or an air suspension (I3A). The air
suspension is a new offering for the Seats’ product line.
The I3 Series seats can be customized to create product differentiation and can
include elastomeric vibration control (EVC), the company said.
Hydraulic Hose Line Expanded
Parker Hannifin has expanded its range of high-pressure, no-skive compact spi-
ral hydraulic hoses with the addition of two new heavy-duty hose sizes common to
off-road equipment used in mining, forestry and oil and gas applications. The new
- 24 and - 32 compact spiral hoses are available in 5000 psi (787TC) and 6000 psi
Parker said both weigh less than standard SAE spiral hose, have smaller outside
diameters and smaller bending radii. For larger hose sizes, weight reduction and
improved flexibility are particularly significant advantages, the company said, as stan-
dard - 24 and - 32 spiral hoses are nearly rigid.
Along with the new hose sizes, Parker added more than 60 new fitting end configura-
tions to its 77 Series steel fitting line for compact spiral hose. Nearly 300 fitting configu-
rations are now available.
DEF Nozzles, Accessories
Husky Corp., Pacific, Mo. is offering a variety of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) dispens-
ing components, including automatic shutoff stainless-steel and polymer DEF nozzles,
plus a line of DEF Safe-T-Breaks, swivels and adapters.
Husky said the designs use 100% ISO recognized DEF
compatible materials including stainless steel, polymers and
O-ring material and all are either UL listed or made with UL
recognized components, Husky said.
As DEF can cause dispensing equipment to clog outside its
optimum temperature range of 12° to 86°F, Husky engineers
designed a DEF nozzle with removable cartridge assemblies
for components that come in contact with DEF. Changing
the affected modular part keeps DEF flowing. The automatic
shutoff stainless-steel DEF nozzle includes Husky’s unique
Flo-Stop device that stops flow when the spout is above hori-
zontal. It is available with three different spout options.
