Test Methods, Hose Assemblies, Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) describes the test methods for flexible PTFE hose and hose assemblies used in aircraft fluid systems in the pressure and temperature ranges defined in specific procurement specifications. It applies to the hose and the hose coupling. The tests and assembly requirements for the connecting end fitting are covered in the procurement specification.
This document applies each time that it is referred to in a procurement specification or other definition document.
This standard is being revised to reflect the current requirements as Section 3 - PTFE Inner Tube Test Methods, Section 4 - Metallic Braided Hose Assembly Test Methods, the addition of Section 5 - Non-Metallic Braided Hose Assembly Test Methods, and the addition of SI equivalent units as applicable.
