Standard for Protective Covers for Gasoline Fuel Line Tubing
This SAE Standard covers the performance requirements for protective covers for gasoline fuel tubing. The ultimate performance of the protective cover can be highly dependant on the interaction of the fuel line tubing and protective cover. Therefore, it is recommended that specific tubing and cover combinations be tested as an assembly to qualify to this document.
This document is intended to provide guidance to the engineer on the key performance parameters for protective covers for gasoline fuel tubing. This document is designed to allow selection of predetermined performance levels for these key performance parameters.
The engineer may select a specification by the use of a line call-out designation, which will denote the pertinent characteristics of the cover material and/or the tube/cover assembly and their corresponding performance criteria. The engineer is not required to select every characteristic, but only those deemed important to the application. Characteristics not covered by this document and deemed important to the engineer should be added using 'Z' suffixes.
This document may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This document does not address the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
