Abstract:

The objectives of this program were to select the most promising nondestructive test method for determining the quantity of iron in a 3-micron aircraft type oil filter, and to design, fabricate, and test two prototype field-usable units which utilized the method selected. Two prototype X-ray fluorescence analyzers were developed and tested. The analyzers detected iron with decreasing sensitivity to small increases in iron level up to 15 grams of iron on the test filters. In lower iron concentrations the sensitivity is shown to be 0.05 gram of iron over the entire filter. Author
