This SAE Standard covers complete general and dimensional specifications for refrigeration tube fittings of the flare type specified in Figures 1 to 42 and Tables 1 to 15. These fittings are intended for general use with flared annealed copper tubing in refrigeration applications. Dimensions of single and double 45 degree flares on tubing to be used in conjunction with these fittings are given in Figure 2 and Table 1 of SAE J533. The following general specifications supplement the dimensional data contained in Tables 1 to 15 with respect to all unspecified details.
Document is in need of a 5 year review. Committee has discussed consolidating automotive flare fittings (currently in J512) into J513. Open project for J512 but need to complete J513 project first as plan is to remove automotive flare fittings from J512.
