This SAE Standard provides general and dimensional specifications for the most common hose fittings used in conjunction with hydraulic hoses specified in SAE J517 and utilized in hydraulic systems on mobile and stationary equipment.
The general specifications contained in Sections 1 through 15 are applicable to all hydraulic hose fittings and supplement the detailed specifications for the 100R-series fittings contained in the later sections of this document.
This document shall be utilized as a procurement document only to the extent agreed upon by the manufacturer and user.
Refer to SAE J517 for specifications of hose and information on hose assemblies. SAE J1273 contains information on application factors affecting hose fittings, hose, and hose assemblies.
THE RATED WORKING PRESSURE OF A HOSE ASSEMBLY COMPRISING SAE J516 FITTINGS AND SAE J517 HOSE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE LOWER OF THE TWO WORKING PRESSURE RATED VALUES.
This document has been revised to add the bulkhead o-ring face seal fittings in Figure 11. Also, the Part Identification Number (PIN) in figures 10A and 10B as well as tables 10A and 10B have been corrected.
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.
