Welded Flash Controlled, High Strength (690 MPa Tensile Strength) Low Alloy Steel Hydraulic Tubing, Stress Relieved, Annealed for Bending, Double Flaring, Cold Forming, and Brazing
This SAE Standard covers stress relieved electric resistance welded flash controlled single wall high strength low alloy steel tubing intended for use in high-pressure hydraulic lines and in other applications requiring tubing of a quality suitable for bending, double flaring,cold forming and brazing. Material produced to this specification is not intended to be used for single flare applications due to the potential leak path caused by the ID weld bead. The grade of material produced to this specification is of micro-alloy content. Nominal reference working pressures for this tubing are listed in ISO 10763 and SAE J1065.
Brazed and/or welded tube assembly configurations made to specific geometry and components in association with this material may require qualification testing in accordance with ISO 19879. Cold forming the tube end configurations avoids this systemic testing by not compromising the structural integrity of the tube material.
In an effort to standardize within a global marketplace and ensure that companies can remain competitive in an international market, it is the intent to convert to metric tube sizes, which will:
This SAE Standard has been revised as part of a Five-Year Review. Document changes include: revisions to the scope, applicable documents, and related publications lists; updated thermal process warning; new verbiage in 5.2; clarified 5.3 requirement; and revised or added notes to 8.8 and 8.9. Verbiage has been updated throughout the standard to align the document with other recently revised tube standards.
