WIP
AIR887D
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) identifies and explains the meaning of various ratings and terms used to describe the physical characteristics of liquid filter elements. The significance of various filter parameters is discussed. In addition, a number of filter test methods are briefly described. This AIR and the data presented are only applicable where the system liquid wets the filter elements.

CURRENT
ARP900C
The purpose of this document is to present test methods that can be utilized to evaluate the filtration and operating characteristics of filters that will be utilized in a cryogenic system. The methods presented herein are intended to supplement standard filter testing specifications to allow evaluation of filter performance characteristics in areas that could be affected by extreme low temperatures.

Aerospace - Evaluation of Particulate Contamination in Hydraulic Fluid - Membrane Procedure

2018-08-13
CURRENT
ARP4285A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes a method for evaluating the particulate matter extracted from the working fluid of a hydraulic system or component using a membrane. The amount of particulate matter deposited on the membrane due to filtering a given quantity of fluid is visually compared against a standard membrane in order to provide an indication of the cleanliness level of the fluid.

Bubble-Point Test Method

2017-04-04
CURRENT
ARP901B
This test method describes a procedure for measuring the largest pore or hole in a filter or similar fluid-permeable porous structure. A standard referee test method for precise determination or resolution of disputes is specified. A simpler inspection test procedure for quality assurance “go-no-go” measurement is also given. Bubble-point testing physics, analysis of bubble-point test data, and correlation with other methods of pore size determination are separately discussed in the appendix.

Evaluating Effectiveness of Filter Element Cleaning Methods

2014-06-03
CURRENT
ARP725B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) presents a procedure for evaluating cleaning methods with respect to contaminant removal and element degradation particularly for metallic filter elements. A procedure for checking durability of cleaning equipment and a referee cleaning method are also included. It is applicable only to the evaluation of cleaning methods proposed for removal of service dirt and not for built-in dirt, liquid oxygen (LOX) cleaning, etc. Supporting information for use with the ARP is also included.

ARP900B
The purpose of this document is to present test methods that can be utilized to evaluate the filtration and operating characteristics of filters that will be utilized in a cryogenic system. The methods presented herein are intended to supplement standard filter testing specifications to allow evaluation of filter performance characteristics in areas that could be affected by extreme low temperatures. The test methods can be utilized to evaluate filters for particle sizes equal to or greater than 5.0 μm and flows up to and including 60 gpm (230 L/min) capacity. If higher flow rate filters are to be evaluated in accordance with the test methods presented herein, it will be necessary to increase the system flow capacity and the size of effluent sampling system from those recommended in this document.

Aerospace - Dynamic Test Method for Determining the Relative Degree of Cleanliness of the Downstream Side of Filter Elements

2002-05-21
HISTORICAL
ARP599C
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes a procedure for determining the insoluble contamination level of the downstream side of filter elements. Results of this procedure represent the particulate released from the tested filter element under the prevailing conditions of the test. The results may be used for comparative evaluation of the effectiveness of various cleaning methods or the cleanliness of elements after cleaning or as received from manufacturers.

Procedure for the Determination of Particulate Contamination of Air in Dust Controlled Spaces by the Manual Particle Count Method

2001-03-01
HISTORICAL
ARP743B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes two procedures for sampling particles in dust controlled spaces. One procedure covers airborne dust above 5 μm. The other (and newly added procedure) covers particles of 25 μm and larger that “fall out” of the environment onto surfaces. In each case the particles are sized in the longest dimension and counted. Airborne particles are reported as particles per cubic meter (cubic foot) whereas particles collected in fall out samples are reported as particles per 0.1 square meter (square foot). This document includes English units in parentheses as referenced information to the SI units where meaningful. These procedures may also be used for environmental analysis where the quality of the particles by visual or chemical analysis is intended.

ARP4285
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) establishes a method for evaluating the particulate matter extracted from the working fluid of a hydraulic system or component using a membrane. The amount of particulate matter deposited on the membrane due to filtering a given quantity of fluid is visually compared against a standard membrane in order to provide an indication of the cleanliness level of the fluid. A particular feature of this method is the membrane preparation to achieve an even particulate distribution on the membrane suitable for other applications. Membrane evaluation using standard membranes, described in this document, is an alternative technique to counting with either an optical microscope (ARP598) or an automatic particle counter (ISO 11500). The latter particle counting procedures are considered more precise.
