Fitting: MIL-DTL-83798
Hose: MIL-DTL-83797
Hose Assembly: MIL-DTL-83796

Example of Military Part Number: M83796/1E185A
(Hose assembly, flared straight fittings. 18-5/8" long, for 1/4" tubing, fitting material steel with aluminum sockets.)

Hydrasearch lightweight hose assemblies can be used as flexible connections on medium pressure airframe applications where flexibility, weight, and fire resistance are important. Hydrasearch lightweight hose is used for applications with operating pressures up to 1000 PSI, and having a temperature range of -65ºF to +250ºF (Consult with Hydrasearch Engineering for hose applications at higher temperatures). (See MIL-DTL-83797 for specific temperature ranges).

Not recommended for hydraulic impulse applications or vacuum without internal support spring.
