SAE J1610

Test Method for Evaluating the Sealing Capability of Hose Connections with a PVT Test Facility

Summary

This standard establishes uniform procedures for evaluating the sealing capability of a hose connection (or any of its components) during a pressure, vibration or temperature (PVT) test facility.

Test Details

This standard establishes procedures for evaluating sealing capability of hose connections under two categories:

  • Methods which incorporate vibration and coolant flow
  • Methods without vibration and coolant flow

Types of products / materials generally tested in our labs

Hoses, tubes, hose connections, and fittings for the cooling systems in automotive applications

Common Uses
