This specification covers the design requirements and test procedures for separable beam seal fittings which include end fittings (see 2.4.2), connectors (see 2.4.3), and boss fittings for use in aerospace fluid systems. Design requirements are for Class 5000 and 8000 in titanium, and corrosion resistant steel (CRES). Definition of fittings and related terms are defined in 2.4.
To incorporate allowances for manufacture of shaped beam seal fittings from both forgings and bar stock (per AS1376). Also replace destructive acceptance testing (proof pressure and pneumatic leakage) with periodic testing.
