To establish its degree of compliance, a hydraulic fluid blend was tested as per Convair Specification FMS-0006. Standard procedures were used in most instances. The results showed that the fluid met the specification with but three exceptions. The first exception, Autogeneous Ignition Point, is minor in as much as it is just below the limit. The other two, Viscosity Change - Oxidation Corrosion test and Compatibility with MIL-0-5606, are more important. With reference to the Viscosity Change in the Oxidation - Corrosion test, this property increased to the maximum limit permissible. It has already been shown in FTDM 1539 that the compatibility of this fluid with MIL-0-5606 is questionable. Two percent contamination of the fluid with MIL-0-5606 could not be tolerated at elevated temperatures. Although toxological tests were not run here, it was noted that certain toxic effects were evident when working with this fluid. ORONITE 8515 FLUID MET SPECIFICATION REQUIREMENT WITH 3 EXCEPTIONS 1 AUTOGENEOUS IGNITION POINT 2 VISCOSITY CHANGE IN THE OXIDATION-CORROSION TEST 3 COMPATIBILITY WITH MIL-0-5606.
