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 1 and 2).
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, SAE J518, SAE J1453, etc., shall not exceed the lower of the respective SAE maximum working pressure values.
When using SAE J517 hose for marine applications, refer to SAE J1475, SAE J1942, and SAE J1942-1.
The SAE J517 100R9, 100R10, and 100R11 hoses were discontinued due to lack of demand. For DOD orders, see Appendix C.
The SAE J517 100R1A, 100R2A, 100R2B, and 100R 2BT were discontinued due to lack of demand. For DOD orders, replace 100R1A with 100R1AT, and replace 100R2A, 100R2B, and 100R2BT with 100R2AT.
The SAE J517 100R1AT maximum working pressures were replaced by the type S maximum working pressures beginning with the year 2009, eliminating the need to label 100R1 as type S.
The SAE J517 100R2AT maximum working pressures were replaced by the type S maximum working pressures beginning with the year 2009, eliminating the need to label 100R2 as type S.
The SAE J517 100R16 maximum working pressures were replaced by the type S maximum working pressures beginning with the year 2009, eliminating the need to label 100R16 as type S.
Replaced Tables 36, 37, and 38 with Appendices A, B, and C as they were in previous editions, to correct improper references. Changed the word “hose” for “hoses” in multiple locations, to agree with the use of the plural instead of the singular to describe more than one hose. Added the word “metric” in multiple locations, to describe the hose sizes. Deleted SAE J1401 from the references since the use of the color yarn was not updated since 1998 and is no longer mandatory. Replaced the Rubber Manufacturers Association with the ARPM (Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers). Changed the temperature requirements for spiral hoses from 121 to 120 °C.
