View Full Version : SAE J2064 Standards

We refuse to use cheap and nasty AC fittings, they have built in issues along with long and short term problems.

The hoses and fittings that we use are tested to SAE J2064 standards they actually exceed those standards. The burst pressure on them is 2500psi, this is impossible for your AC system to achieve, thus it will never burst.

As shown in the picture below with regular crimp style hoses they are often plagued with the issue of trapping air and PAG oil in the crimp, which over time turns acidic.


With the clamp system we use this never happens and you actually have a much stronger bite of the hose into the bite sections of the fittings, for a system that will last many years to come.

The fittings we use have a tensile strength on the weakest part (the radius) of 1600kg / 3527lbs

The manufacturer we buy the hoses and fittings from warranties them as long as we use their hoses, clamps and fittings.
As such we warranty the entire system, this shows how confident they are in their product that it will not fail and should it fail which is HIGHLY unlikely it will be replaced.

During SAE J2064 testing of the hose/fittings when it fails the part that fails is the actual hose bursting open at 2500psi!!!

The fitting and clamps remain intact still holding the hose to the fitting….only the hose is bursting open. This shows how strong the clamping system is and the bite force being applied to the hose/fitting.
This is much stronger than regular crimping which is why the manufacturer is able to warranty their product.

It’s a case of buying the best possible AC hose/fittings that is the most versatile, flexible to our needs and of a very high quality. It may not be the cheapest option but usually the cheapest option has its own flaws.

This picture is an example of our hoses all ***embled ready to be installed.
