This SAE Standard covers steel wire reinforced rubber hose assemblies using connectors specified in SAE J516 for use in hydraulic systems using petroleum based hydraulic fluids with maximum working pressures of 1.7 to 42 MPa. See SAE J1754-2, Table 8 for hose operating temperature ranges and identification codes. Note: Working pressure is defined as maximum system pressure.
Presently SAE Standards J1754-1 and SAE J1754-2 contain the procurement requirements and ordering information for 21MPa maximum working pressure, hydraulic, rubber hose assemblies with 37° flare fittings. It has been suggested that these standards be re-written to include the most common pressures and fitting end configurations used in the industry.
