Mixing imperial and metric air fittings

October 2020

Through the work of its Industry Technical Council, the ATA has been alerted to a number of instances where newly purchased and installed fittings/airlines have failed to seal correctly.

These installations leaked excessively while the vehicle was under test in the workshop and were replaced without further incident. However, if undetected, these leaks could cause on-road complications such as the unintended activation of emergency braking systems.
