Procedure for Qualifying Nylon Hose Coupling
|Publication Date:||1 November 2018|
Material Description. This specification covers qualification tests for nylon fuel system assemblies with quick connector assemblies intended for use in conducting liquid fuels or fuel vapor. Other documents which describe the performance and dimensional requirements of the assemblies and the assembly components are specifications GMW17823, GMW17568, GMW15986, GMW14754, GMW14638, and SAE J2045.
Symbols. Not applicable.
Applicability. Nylon fuel system assemblies with quick connector assemblies intended for use in conducting liquid fuels or fuel vapor. Also applies to nylon fuel line assemblies containing interfaces to other barbed or upsetted-tube ends such as "L" connections, "Y" connections, "T" connections, filters, sensors, etc.
This specification also defines the performance requirements for those assemblies containing direct metal or nylon male tubing to nylon female tubing connections used for conducting liquid fuel or fuel vapor. The specification requirements contained therein are to be used for both the Engineering Source Approval generation through the testing of the standard assembly samples described in Section 3 and for the testing and approval of production fuel assemblies. Unless otherwise specified, all test requirements of this specification apply to nylon fuel line assemblies conducting either liquid fuel or fuel vapor.
