|Publication Date:||1 March 2013|
This SAE Standard covers complete general and dimensional specifications for the flanged heads and split flange clamp halves applicable to four-bolt split flange type tube, pipe, and hose connections with appropriate references to the O-ring seals and attaching components used in their assembly. Also included are recommended port dimensions and port design considerations.
The flanged heads specified are incorporated into fitting having suitable means for attachment of tubes, pipes, or hoses to provide connection ends. These connections are intended for application in hydraulic systems, on industrial and commercial products, where it is desired to avoid the use of threaded connections.
THE RATED WORKING PRESSURE OF A HOSE ASSEMBLY COMPRISING SAE J518 HOSE CONNECTIONS AND SAE J517 HOSE SHALL NOT EXCEED THE LOWER OF THE TWO WORKING PRESSURE RATED VALUES.
O-ring seals, having nominal dimensions are used in conjunction with these connections. They shall conform to the seals specified in SAE J120, Table on Dimensions and Tolerance.
Bolts for use with these connections shall be of the sizes and lengths. They shall be of SAE Grade 5 material or better as specified in SAE J429. Socket head cap screws of SAE Grade 5 material or better are acceptable.
Lock washers, if used, shall be in accordance with the light spring lock washers specified in SAE J489, Dimensions of Light, Medium, Heavy, Extra Heavy, and Hi Collar Spring Lock Washers, and of sizes applicable to the corresponding bolts.
