Factors to Prioritize in SAE J514 Fittings

When buying SAE J514 fittings, there are a few factors your purchasing department (or purchasers) should be aware of to ensure you get the right products for your applications and industry. A few of these factors include:

  • Certification: Your SAE J514 fittings should have the appropriate certification to ensure quality and safety standards have been met throughout the manufacturing process.
  • Pressure Rating: Having the correct pressure rating for your fittings is critical to ensuring not only compatibility with your existing system but also safety and compliance. 
  • CRN Number: Canadian Registration Numbers (CRN) are issued by each province or territory by an authorized safety authority to ensure your boiler, pressure vessel, or fittings are safe to operate at a pressure greater than 15 psig (1 barg). Some systems require a CRN to install and operate in Canada legally. 
  • Compatibility: Whether material, pressure, or system compatibility, ensuring your SAE J514 fittings seamlessly integrate into your system is key to operational safety and continuation. 

Depending on your fluid and control system requirements, industry, and applications, there can be several other factors to consider when purchasing SAE J514 fittings. Fortunately, if you need any assistance finding the right fittings for your application, Hy-Lok Canada’s highly experienced team is here to help! 

Common Issues with “Cheap” SAE J514 Fittings

With the increasing popularity of valves, fittings, and fluid-handling components being available online at increasingly discounted prices, we’d like to pass along a word of caution regarding such products: 

Not all fittings and valves are created equal, and quality is worth the price.

While there are many cheaper alternatives to Hy-Lok’s products, you run the risk of those components breaking down quicker, not having the proper certification, or not meeting SAE specifications. That’s why avoiding these potential issues is essential, as is investing in quality fittings and valves from a trusted manufacturer and distributor like Hy-Lok Canada.
