Abstract:

The introduction of a new, less-flammable, synthetic-base hydraulic fluid MIL-H-46170 for armored vehicles operating in hostile environment created a problem in the operability of the M60 A1 AOS hydraulic and gun- control system. In the determining of problem origin, a need was created for methodology to 1 determine the level of MIL-H-6083 petroleum-base hydraulic fluid remaining in the system after retro-fit and 2 determine the amount of adsorbed water. Gas-liquid chromatographic procedures were subsequently developed to accomplish these objectives. Author
