ARP1827B - Measuring Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Fine Fuel Filter Element Performance

Details
Document Number: ARP1827B
Revision Number: B
Title
Measuring Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Fine Fuel Filter Element Performance
Scope
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) delineates two complementary filter element performance ratings: (1) dirt capacity, and (2) filtration efficiency, and corresponding test procedures. It is intended for non-cleanable (disposable), fine fuel filter elements used in aviation gas turbine engine fuel systems. Variation in filter element testing methods and requirements make comparison of results difficult. In order to minimize these problems, this document describes standard filtration ratings and test procedures. Both manufacturer and customer will have a common means to specify, control, and evaluate filter elements.
