This SAE Standard provides general, dimensional and performance specifications for the most common hoses used in hydraulic systems on mobile and stationary equipment.
The general specifications contained in Sections 1 through 12 are applicable to all hydraulic hoses and supplement the detailed specifications for the 100R-series hoses contained in the later sections of this document. (See Tables 1A and 1B).
This document shall be utilized as a procurement document only to the extent as agreed upon by the manufacturer and user.
The maximum working pressure of a hose assembly comprising SAE J517 hose and hose connectors per SAE J516, J518, J1453, etc., shall not exceed the lower of the respective SAE maximum working pressure values.
When using SAE J517 hose for marine applications, see SAE J1475, J1942 and J1942-1.
The SAE J517 100R9, 100R10 and 100R11 hoses will be discontinued beginning with the year 2005, due to lack of demand.
The SAE J517 100R1A, 100R2A, 100R2B and 100R2BT will be discontinued beginning with the year 2005 due to lack of demand. For DOD orders after 2004, use 100R1AT and 100R2AT to replace 100R1A and 100R2A.
The SAE J517 100R2AT maximum working pressures will be replaced by the type S maximum working pressures beginning with the year 2006, eliminating the need to label 100R2 as type S.
The SAE J517 100R16 maximum working pressures will be replaced by the type S maximum working pressures with the year 2008, eliminating the need to label 100R16 as type S.
