(R) Hose Assembly, Type Classifications of, Basic Performance and Fire Resistance
|Publication Date:||1 September 2017|
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes Type classification for those hose assemblies commonly used in aerospace fuel, lubricating oil, and hydraulic fluid systems.
The purpose of this document is to create a common Classification (Type) system for the aforementioned hose assemblies. This is to facilitate determining comparability within a Type, offer a consolidated listing of active hose assembly types with performance references including fire resistance properties.
Hose assemblies are classified (type) (see Figure 1 for examples).
Basic Performance (Using Roman Numerals)
Each basic type is identified by performance in accordance with a military, SAE, or other industry specification(s) based upon pressure rating, temperature rating, and application(s).
