SAE J514 Fittings Overview: Key Features and Applications

SAE J514 fittings are fairly standard across a number of applications, including fluid power systems and automotive applications. Because there is a science to understanding fluid under pressure, the components involved must be strong and reliable enough to operate safely and effectively in these applications. SAE International standard ensures that your fittings meet those requirements.

At Hy-Lok Canada, we proudly stock a comprehensive inventory of SAE J514 compatible fittings. Below, we will tell you more about our inventory of these fittings and some of their standout features. Continue reading to find out more!

Understanding SAE J514 JIC 37° Hydraulic Connections

37° flared JIC fittings are among the industry’s most common and recognized fittings, as they are designed to meet both the Joint Industry Council (JIC) and Society of Automotive Engineers Thread (SAE) J514 specifications. Since SAE international standards tend to be the norm across the automotive, commercial vehicle, and aerospace industries, it’s no wonder that SAE J514 JIC 37° fittings are so popular. These fittings offer a high degree of compatibility with existing fluid handling systems; combined with Hy-Lok’s commitment to interchangeability, our SAE J514 JIC 37° fittings are sure to perform even in demanding conditions.

Flared Fittings: A Closer Look

When it comes to low to medium-pressure applications, flared fittings are often the go-to choice. SAE J514 JIC Flared fittings offer significant design and performance advantages compared to other fittings, such as pipe fittings. Hy-Lok Canada’s flared fittings are designed to maintain tight seals, even under severe vibration, thermal shocks, pressure bursts, and other demanding conditions. Because of these outstanding features, many of our flared fittings can be found in commercial vehicles, natural gas lines, hydraulic systems, and more!

At Hy-Lok Canada, our SAE J514 flared fittings are fully interchangeable with Swagelok and other competing manufacturers. They are also manufactured to withstand numerous challenging applications, so when you need affordable and compatible fittings where durability and reliability are a must-have, trust our flared fittings!

SAE J514 Fittings Design Features

SAE J514-compliant fittings can be found in various applications, from hose and tubing assemblies to aerospace components. At Hy-Lok Canada, we carry a comprehensive SAE tube and flared fittings inventory. These components are available in steel, titanium, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel.

One of the standout design features of SAE J514 fittings is that when their sleeve is tightened, it ensures proper tube alignment with the fitting axis. This then reduces the mechanical strain on the tube, thereby reducing vibrations. By reducing vibrations, SAE J514 fittings can withstand challenging conditions where other fittings may fail.

At Hy-Lok Canada, we can custom manufacture SAE J514-compliant fittings for whatever application or condition you’re working in. From custom sizes and materials to large bulk orders, Hy-Lok Canada is here to ensure you have the high-quality fittings you need to get the job done.
