This SAE Recommended Practice establishes minimum performance requirements for new pneumatic valves when tested in accordance with the test procedure outlined in SAE J1409. The performance requirements will include: a. Input-output performance b. Leakage characteristics c. Low temperature performance d. Elevated temperature performance e. Corrosion resistance performance f. Endurance testing g. Structural integrity
This document has been updated in keeping with the five-year review process. The Supply and Controls Components Committee has approved the addition of vibration testing per Section 11 and changes in leakage rates that reflect current manufacturing and design practice.
