FLUID CONTAMINATION SURVEY OF 143 NAVAL AIRCRAFT HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS
DOUGLAS AIRCRAFT CO LONG BEACH CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A survey of hydraulic fluid contamination was made in which 79 airplanes, plus several test stands, were sampled. The results are presented in tabular and graphical form. An analysis of the data of the survey leads to the conclusion that substantially cleaner systems can be maintained with no great increase in cost. Recommendations are made concerning the maximum permissible level of contamination, and procurement of components which will operate reliably at the fluid contamination levels to which they will be subjected.
