Since 1977, Hy-Lok has been committed to supplying Canadian industry leaders with high-quality components for every type of fluid system. From the high-pressure, heavy-duty demands of the petrochemical and automotive industries to the precision requirements of the cryogenic and biotechnology fields, Hy-Lok manufactures reliable fittings that deliver unbeatable performance and value.
SAEJ514 tube fittings are among our bestselling products today. Read on to learn more about this common type of tube fitting, as well as how Hy-Lok components can add value to your operation.
SAE J514 Use Cases
If you operate in the automotive, aerospace, or commercial vehicle industries, chances are that you’re already using tube fittings and components made to SAE standards. SAEJ514-compliant fittings are commonly found in hoses, lines, and other tubing assemblies. Additionally, SAE tube fittings are standard in rotary equipment and air compressors in a wide variety of industries and applications.
If your fluid systems already use SAE components, it is essential to replace parts with SAE compatible fittings. While fittings made to different specifications may look (and occasionally perform) similar, using mismatched components can lead to a shorter lifespan, and often system malfunction or failure. If you’re unsure which parts you need, our qualified Hy-Lok distributors can help you determine the right components to keep your fluid system performing optimally.
SAE Tube Fittings with Hy-Lok
With one of the most extensive inventories in North America, Hy-Lok’s range of products includes a wide variety of tube fittings manufactured to SAE standards.
The 37-degree flared JIC fitting is one of the most common SAE tube fittings we sell. They are fully compatible with SAE J514 and JIC (Joint Industry Council) standards. 37º flared JIC fittings perform well under vibrations, pressure bursts, thermal shocks, and other demanding conditions. When tightened, the fitting’s sleeve ensures tube alignment with the fitting axis, reducing mechanical strain on the tube and decreasing vibrations.
Hy-Lok SAE tube fittings are typically made from steel to balance strength and corrosion resistance with value. We also carry Hastelloy/titanium components for added performance. Alternative materials such as brass, aluminum, and SS316 stainless steel are available by request for custom orders. No matter what your fluid system needs, Hy-Lok is committed to supplying high-quality tube fittings for our customers across Canada.
At Hy-Lok, we understand that seamless integration with existing systems is critical to any operation’s productivity. That’s why Hy-Lok Canada’s fittings are designed to be 100% interchangeable with Swagelok and other manufacturers’ components. Hy-Lok SAE J514 fittings can be intermixed in all sizes, all while providing equal or superior performance. Our direct replacement valves and fittings fit perfectly into your fluid system without the added strains and costs of intermixing components. It’s never been easier to experience the Hy-Lok Difference!
