A new line of SAE aluminum tube fittings are approximately 65% lighter than their steel and stainless-steel counterparts. The fittings provide immediate fuel, freight, and vehicletransfer cost savings. No component redesign is necessary when performing a changeover from a steel or stainless-steel system as the fittings are manufactured to SAE J514 dimensions for 37° flare fittings and SAE J1453 dimensions for O-ring face-seal fittings.
The connectors have a maximum working pressure rating that is approximately 50% of steel fittings and temperature rating ranges from –40 to 400°F, depending on the seal material.
The fittings feature a trapezoidalshape seal that provides good retention in the O-ring face-seal groove to prevent “pop out” associated with round-shape O-rings, as well as reducing the risk of seal damage and leakage.
