Abstract:

A nonflammable hydraulic fluid has been developed based on a chlorinated phenyl methyl silicone fluid. Laboratory results as well as limited hydraulic pump-loop circuit evaluations have demonstrated the unique antiwear properties of this silicone based fluid. In addition, compatibility of the fluid with Buna N elastomer seals has also been established. These results indicate the potential for use of this fluid as a replacement for MIL-H-5606 in current and future military aircraft. Author
