Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics Increase Safety and Reduce Operating Costs 965603
Accurate information derived from monitoring the contamination level of the hydraulic fluid in an aircraft allows the development of a diagnostic system. Using this approach, maintenance can be based on actual condition of the aircraft's Fluid Power System.
Servicing the system and its components based on known condition rather than on arbitrary service, or time intervals reduces unscheduled maintenance and has a major impact on reducing operating costs.
Safety, reliability, and predictable availability of the aircraft are significant benefits of this approach to maintenance.
