This SAE standard provides limited, dimensional and general performance requirements for low pressure, field attachable, push-on hose and their mating hose fittings. The intended application is for fluid and pneumatic power used with petroleum base hydraulic fluids, lube oils, water glycols and air, within the temperature ranges listed in Table 1. The maximum working pressure is 1.7 MPa (see Table 2). For air applications the maximum working pressure is at 0.7 MPa. Hose and hose fittings are manufactured within certain dimensions with tolerance ranges in order to provide the proper gripping and sealing. SAE J2552 hose from one manufacturer may not be compatible with J2552 hose fittings supplied by another manufacturer. It is the responsibility of the fabricator to consult the manufacturers' written assembly instructions or the manufacturers directly before intermixing hose and hose fittings from two manufacturers. Always follow the manufacturers' instructions for proper preparation and fabrication of hose assemblies. Hose assemblies made to this standard shall not be used in dynamic motion, vibrating or impulsing applications, nor for brake hoses or fuel lines.
This is a new document with the objective to standardize push-on hose and the mating hose fittings.
