Performance Testing of Lubricant Filter Elements Utilized in Aircraft Power and Propulsion Lubrication Systems

2020-11-12
CURRENT
AIR1666C
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) reviews performance testing parameters for non-cleanable (often referred to as disposable) filter elements utilized in aircraft power and propulsion lubrication systems, including gas turbine engines and auxiliary power units (APUs), propulsion and transmission gear boxes, and constant speed drives and integrated drive generators (IDGs). This document is confined to laboratory testing of filter element performance to qualify the filtration medium and filter element construction as opposed to qualification of the complete filter assembly. The testing discussed here is usually followed by laboratory and on-engine testing of the entire lube filter assembly (including filter element, housing, valving, etc.), which is outside the scope of this AIR.

Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Fuel Pump Low Lubricity Fluid Endurance Test

2020-06-04
WIP
ARP1797B
This procedure is intended to apply to fuel pumps. This procedure will be defined in terms of recommended test fluid, test setup, test conditions, and test method. This procedure may be used for other fuel system components, by testing in conjunction with the pump, which normally supplies the component inlet flow, or a substitute test pump of similar capacity. This procedure may be used, with variations in test conditions and test fluid for performing pump evaluation tests. Tests at progressively increasing pump speeds and pressures will provide design limitation data. Alternate test periods on a test pump and another pump, of a design for which actual service durability is known, will provide useful comparison data.

WIP
ARP7976
This Aerospace Recommended Practice provides the considerations appropriate for Engine Lubrication System Oil Tank sizing, and provides means to confirm the oil volume held within the Oil Tank is adequate for satisfactory Lubrication System performance. Two scenarios should be considered when demonstrating that the Oil Tank capacity and oil volume held within the Oil Tank are adequate, sea level engine testing and in-flight operation, when demonstrating the capability of Lubrication System to operate in support of FAA Part 23 and Part 25, CFR Part 33, and corresponding EASA CS-E regulations, and equivalent Military application requirements.

Aircraft Engine Fuel Pump Cavitation Endurance Test

2015-02-16
WIP
ARP492D
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) defines procedures for testing aircraft engine fuel pumps for the purpose of determining their resistance to deterioration, during steady state endurance test, while receiving MIL-T-5624 Grade JP-4 fuel as a homogenous mixture of gas and liquid expressed as a ratio of vapor volume to liquid volume (V/L).

If any of the above conditions do not apply, refer to Section 2.

The procedure recommended herein is based on experience gathered by a number of laboratories conducting component qualification tests to MIL-E-5009, currently MIL-E-5007. It is intended to produce a uniform reproducible steady state test condition for fuel pump cavitation testing as required by various military engine specifications.

This test is not intended to establish altitude or climb rate, starting, or other transient performance of the article tested.
