This part of SAE J1926 specifies dimensions, performance requirements, and test procedures for adjustable and nonadjustable light-duty (L series) stud ends with ASME B1.1 threads for use in fluid power and general applications and the O-rings used with them.
Stud ends in accordance with this part of SAE J1926 may be used at working pressures up to 35 MPa for nonadjustable and adjustable stud ends. The permissible working pressure depends upon materials, design, working conditions, application, etc.
For threaded ports and stud end specified in new designs for hydraulic fluid power applications, only ISO 6149 shall be used. Threaded ports and stud ends in accordance with ISO 1179, ISO 9974, and ISO 11926 shall not be used for new design in hydraulic fluid power applications.
Conformance to the dimensional information does not guarantee rated performance. Each manufacturer shall perform testing according to the specification contained in this document to ensure that components made to this document comply with the performance rating.
Appendices A and B of this document are informative.
NOTE: This document specifies inch as well as metric hexes for the stud ends. Therefore, any product drawing specifying stud ends in accordance with this document must specify hex type, inch or metric, to assure getting intended hex.
Stud ends or parts specified before January 1, 2010 using this standard, shall be supplied with inch hexes, unless otherwise specified.
This document was revised in order to move the optional inch hex sizes and dimensions to Appendix B.
In an effort to standardize within a global market and ensuring that companies can remain competitive in an international market, it is the intent to convert to metric hex sizes which will:- lead to one global system - guide users to preferred system - reduce complexity - eliminate duplications
The optional inch hexes now contain the note “NOT TO BE USED FOR NEW DESIGN” in accordance with the Metric Hex Resolution approved during the March 2008 FCCTC meeting.
