What is SAE hydraulic fitting?
SAE hydraulic fitting has female 90°cone seat SAE J513, and materials of it usually is brass. SAE hydraulic fitting is widely used in those low pressure applications.
What are the usage of SAE hydraulic fittings?
Typically, SAE hydraulic fittings are used in those lower pressure applications , like automotive piping systems, refrigeration, and so on .
What is an SAE flange?
SAE hydraulic flanges are manufactured to SAE J518 and are a special gasket used to hold two lengths of pipe together, or as a removable plug at the end of a single pipe. The flanges are all discs with bolt holes around the rim, and they are ideal for high pressure, shock and vibration environments.
What is the difference between NPT and SAE?
SAE hydraulic fitting is a straight thread which requires an O-ring to stop leaking. NPT hydraulic fitting is tapered thread which usually depends on a combination between male and female threaded thread to seal,and it sometimes requires Teflon tape to help sealing.
How to measure SAE hydraulic fittings?
The threads can be measured by ID/OD. First check the threads, SAE 45° has a double seat, so it is easier to analyze. Then analyze the amount of thread per inch with the help of a thread gauge, or the distance from thread to thread in a metric fitting. Finally, the gauge is placed in the thread until it fits perfectly and compared to the dimensions in the chart.
Is SAE thread the same as UNF?
The SAE thread contains UNF thread which stands for Unfied Fine Thread. UNF thread is used to connect stainless steel tubes to the opposite body. For example, the main body of a counter must need UNF threads to connect. And SAE fittings are mainly used in lower pressure instruments .
What is SAE ORB hydraulic fitting？
SAE ORB hydraulic fittings are N.F.P.A. recommended port fittings for stop leaking in medium or high pressure hydraulic systems.Common materials for ORB fittings are nickel plated carbon, stainless steel, and carbon, and also include Buna-N or Viton, 90 durometer O-rings.
What is the difference between SAE and JIC hydraulic fitting?
SAE hydraulic fittings are invariably used in those lower pressure applications,like refrigerations and so on.
JIC hydraulic fittings are invariably used in where higher stress are involved,like fluid power.
Are JIC and SAE hydraulic fittings interchangeable?
SAE and JIC hydraulic fittings are totally incompatible.Their flare angle are different, SAE hydraulic fittings have famela 45 ° cone seat ,and JIC hydraulic fittings have 37°male and female cone seat.
Is SAE coarse thread or fine thread?
Compared with USS, USS is a coarse thread, while SAE is a fine thread.But for SAE fittings, it has its own gauge, that is, the more threads per inch, the finer the threads.
