SAE J517

To bring a measure of uniformity to hydraulic-hose manufacturing, minimum standards for construction, dimensions, and performance have long been established in North America by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers).

In other parts of the world, organizations such as the European Norm/Standard (EN)Deutsche Industrie Norm (DIN), and the International Standards Organization (ISO) also set standards, which may differ from those of SAE. The ProPulse hydraulic catalog calls out which specifications each hose meets.

Propulse offers the SAE rubber hydraulic hose solutions for OEMs. Our rubber hoses follow SAE standards guidelines for performance requirements on hydraulic systems. The materials and construction technique determine if a rubber hydraulic hose meets the SAE standards. Temperature, size, type of fluid and pressure are all factors that determine which hose construction is the best for your application. Here at ProPulse, we assemble SAE rubber hoses for a variety of OEM’s worldwide. Our engineers and design service teams will work with you to assess your individual needs and provide you with a SAE rubber hose, that works best for the application. ProPulse offers exceptional customer service, supply reliability and industry expertise tailoring our approach to service your unique needs.
