Coupled Automotive Refrigerant Air-Conditioning Hose Assemblies
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Title: This will now be a “coupled” hose assembly standard.
Scope: Changed to reflected “coupled” hose assemblies and removed hose only references. Added the requirement that an SAE J2911 hose must be used in the assembly which meets the requirements of SAE J3062 Automotive Air-Conditioning Hose.
References: Added SAEJ2911 and SAEJ3062.
Manufacture: Deleted this section which is related to hose and is now part of SAEJ3062.
Identification: Changed from “Hose Identification” to “Hose Assembly Identification”. Deleted “Bulk Hose” section and removed hose marking references from “Hose Assembly Identification”.
Testing: Removed “Age Test”, “Cold Test”, “Vacuum Flattening”, “Length Change”, “Extraction Test”, “Ozone Test” and “Moisture Ingression” tests. Removed listing these test results from Table A1 “Certification Table” shown in Appendix A. These are now requirements of SAEJ3062.
