Using actual parts from a typical jet engine, a test rig was designed and constructed. Operating under typical jet engine conditions, the rig was capable of differentiating between oils on the basis of seal deposits and used oil data. The possibility also existed that differences in carbon seal wear rate could be determined. Final correlation of the results with field information will determine if the differences noted are significant.
