Abstract:

Materials research and end item development was conducted contractually to produce 2, 4, and 6 inch suction and discharge fuel hose capable of satisfying a need for service at -60 F as components of Arctic Refueling Systems. Hose fabricated from DuPont Adiprene CM millable urethane was subjected to in-service testing at Fort Greely, AK, and judged acceptable for use to -40 F. The previous serviceability limit had been -25 F. Attempts to fabricate similar hoses from fluorosilicone elastomers were unsuccessful due to problems in processing and end item integrity.
