Fluid Systems - Connector Tubes - General Specification and Part Standard
|Publication Date:||1 October 2001|
Scope - This SAE Standard identifies the material and dimensional requirements for component connector tubes and related items for use in fluid power components. Connector tubes are also identified as quills, ferrules or transfer tubes. Connector tubes are used to connect fluid passages within a component or to connect one component to another; for example, connecting control valves to subplates. Related items include plugs, undrilled connector tubes and connector tubes for internal check valves and restrictors.
Field of Application - While used in many high-pressure hydraulic component applications, connector tubes are suitable for use in a wide application of fluid system components. Connector tubes and related components covered in this document are considered suitable for maximum operating pressures of 21 MPa (3045 psi). (See 5.3)
