Hydraulic Flanged Tube, Pipe, and Hose Connections, Four-Bolt Split Flange Type
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. (See Figures 1 and 2.) Also included are recommended port dimensions and port design considerations. The flanged heads specified are incorporated into fittings 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. Flanged heads shall be as specified in Figure 3 and Table 1.
