Firesleeve: SAE AS1072 High Temperature, Heat, Flame, Fire & Pyro Resistant
Aviation / Marine Grade
(Allows qualified hose assemblies to pass AS1055D testing)
This aviation / aerospace and marine grade high temperature, heat, flame and pyro resistant firesleeve jacket is manufactured to SAE AS1072 standards so it can pass the fire testing standards of AS1055D; and the requirements of FAA TSO - C53a and TSO - C75.
It may be used for all fuel, oil, hydraulic, fire extinguisher and prop feathering lines. "Fire-proof" hose lines, as defined by the FAA, must withstand a direct flame for fifteen minutes under specified flow conditions without failure. Fire-resistant lines must withstand a 5 minute exposure under these conditions.
Fire-proof hose lines are obtained when the proper size Firesleeve is selected and properly assembled with appropriate clamps.
