Abstract:

A candidate silicone-base fire-resistant hydraulic fluid designated Nadraul MS-6 has been developed for future military aircraft hydraulic system design. A 500 hour hydraulic pump-loop circuit evaluation of the MS-6 fluid has been successfully completed. Data on this phase of the investigation and the development effort on the MS-6 fluid and an alky-ester siloxane are reported. A design guide is planned based on the physical and chemical properties of MS-6 so that future hydraulic systems can be designed around the properties of this new formulation and thus take advantage of its fire-resistant nature.
