This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides procedures for assuring cleanliness of sampling equipment, for performing the sampling process, and for measuring and reporting the sample particle count.
The ARP gives procedures for cleaning sample bottles, when used, and recommends the solvents to be applied and how these solvents should be prepared.
Requirements for the selection of the sampling point, sampling method, and sampling frequency are also specified.
This ARP also recommends three measuring methods for determining the level of solid particle contamination of hydraulic fluids used in aerospace hydraulics. These are:
on-line automatic particle counting;
automatic particle counting method using bottle samples;
microscopic particle count method using bottle samples.
Revision B was made to correct and update references, and to make minor changes in the sampling procedures for clarity.

A-6C1 Fluids and Contamination Control Committee
A6C1 is responsible for the development of standards, processes, and practices related to Aerospace Fluids and Systems' cleanliness in aerospace engines, hydraulic systems and missiles, and the integration of these components for Commercial and Military air vehicles. The panel provides a forum for government engineers, prime contractors, and suppliers to exchange technical information, regulatory updates, recent technology developments, issues related to system development and in service operation and lessons learned.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
