Filtration and Contamination Control for Aerospace Hydraulic Systems
This four-hour short course provides an introduction to contamination control principles in aircraft hydraulic systems. Topics covered include an introduction to the types of contamination in aircraft hydraulic systems, contaminant measurement, and reporting methods. In addition, the impact of contamination on hydraulic components is discussed in detail. Along with an introduction to filtration mechanisms, information on testing, rating, and specifying filters will be provided.
What Will You Learn
- Associate the types of contaminant in aircraft hydraulic systems and the problems that uncontrolled contamination can cause
- Interpret a particle count or contamination level report
- Identify how filters work and are evaluated
- Explain filter ratings
- Formulate a basic specification for hydraulic filters
