Small Diameter Fuel Line Permeation Test Procedure
This SAE Recommended Practice is intended for the determination of the losses of hydrocarbon fluids by permeation through small diameter fuel hose typically 4.75mm ID or less and typically used on Small Off-Road Engines (SORE) less than 19 kW as regulated under 40 CFR Part 1054.
Rationale: During SAE J30 Permeation testing of small diameter fuel lines, air bubbles can unknowlingly form in the fuel line and cause erroneous and inconsistent results. This new and improved weight loss test procedure, has been developed as an alternative to SAE J30, will eliminate air bubble formation resulting in improved permeation test results.
