Parker Instrumentation Division is a division of parent company Parker Hannifin Corporation, who, according to its website, has annual sales of more than $10 billion and is “the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of mobile, industrial and aerospace markets” (Company Website).
On its page, Parker Instrumentation Division states that it “provides highly engineered flow control components and systems. These components range from basic compression fittings, pipe fittings, needle valves, ball valves, compact stream switching valves to modular fitting and valve packages" (Company Website).
Parker Instrumentation is listed as an exhibitor in the 12th Oil Show in Iran, which took place in 2007 (Iran Oil Show Website).
In 2003, Parker's Instrumentation Products Division-Europe announced that their products, including tube fittings, valves, regulators and hoses, had been contracted to make gas dispensers for Iran’s “national compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered public transport project.” "According to Parker Instrumentation, Hans Brochier is currently providing fuel dispensing systems for more than 40 filling stations at "key" high-traffic sites throughout the country, which will be used initially by a fleet of CNG-fueled buses. Following the initial phase of the project, Parker Instrumentation noted that Iran's Fuel Conservation Organization, which is spearheading the effort, "expects to extend CNG fueling availability more widely throughout the country via a further 100-plus filling stations...." "The breadth of Parker's product portfolio allowed us to provide a complete fluid flow solution for this CNG-dispensing product," said Parker Instrumentation territory manager Heiner Klinkmann. "Natural gas vehicles are a very fast-growing market, and Iran's groundbreaking application is a global showpiece for the performance of Parker's tube fitting and fluid flow components in this emerging high-pressure application sector" (Alternative Transportation Fuels Today, "Parker Provides Fluid Flow Components for Iranian CNG Scheme," December 9 2003).
Iran is listed in a catalog of international distributors in a Parker Hannifin product manual ( Parker Hannifin Brochure).
According to an industry publication, the U.S. manufacturer Parker Hannifin's European subsidiary, Parker's Instrumentation Products Division-Europe, announced in 2003 that its equipment would be used to supply Iranian compressed natural gas refueling stations. The company was selected by Hans Brochier GmbH & Company for a "contract to provide gas dispensers for Iran's nationwide compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered public transport project."
