ISO 19879:2010 specifies uniform methods for the testing and performance evaluation of metallic tube connections, stud ends for ports and flange connections for use in hydraulic fluid power applications. ISO 19879:2010 does not apply to the testing of hydraulic quick-action couplings, which is covered by ISO 7241-2.
Tests outlined in ISO 19879:2010 are independent of each other and document the method to follow for each test. See the appropriate component International Standard for which tests to conduct and for performance criteria.
For qualification of the connector, the minimum number of samples specified in ISO 19879:2010 is tested, unless otherwise specified in the relevant connector standard or as agreed upon by the manufacturer and the user.
