Abstract:

A simple reliable method for monitoring engine oil pollution in aircraft cabin atmospheres is presented. The method involves use of a specially designed sampling device and a standard quantitative infrared spectroscopic procedure. The report describes the use of this device to evaluate an air decontamination system on the EB-57D aircraft. A catalytic filter has been recommended for use in the EB-57D aircraft to lower the oil content in the cabin atmosphere.
