Performance Evaluation of Fuel Filter Elements Utilized in Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine/APU Main Fuel Systems

2019-09-11
WIP
AIR6985
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) reviews performance testing of fuel filter elements utilized in aircraft gas turbine engine/APU fuel systems and discusses a sequence of standard tests used to qualify fuel filter element performance. This allows both manufacturer and customer a common means to specify, control, and evaluate filter elements. The methodology discussed should be incorporated in fuel filter element specifications.

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

2019-09-04
WIP
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.

Lubrication System Oil Tank Sizing

2018-02-26
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.

WIP
AIR6384
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) is intended to provide guidance for installing GFI/AFCB in the fuel pumps power circuits for protection of fuel vapors ignition inside the tank in case of a failure that causing arcing inside the pump. Besides, this AIR is also intended to provide minimum specification and testing for ground fault interrupter (GFI) and arc fault circuit breaker (AFCB), addressing the issues associated with the verification requirements based on current regulatory guidance per AC25.981-1C.

WIP
AS4273B
This document establishes requirements, test procedures, and acceptance criteria for the fire testing of fluid handling components and materials used in aircraft fluid systems. It is applicable to fluid handling components other than those prescribed by AS1055 (e.g., hoses, tube assemblies, coils, and fittings). It also is applicable to materials, wiring, and components such as reservoirs, valves, gearboxes, pumps, filter assemblies, accumulators, fluid-cooled electrical/electronic components, in-flight fluid system instrumentation, hydromechanical controls, actuators, heat exchangers, and manifolds. These components may be used in fuel, lubrication, hydraulic, or pneumatic systems.

Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Fuel Pump Low Lubricity Fluid Endurance Test

1999-04-01
CURRENT
ARP1797A
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.

CURRENT
ARP492C
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.

CURRENT
ARP4028
This procedure is intended to apply to all engine or airframe mounted fuel pumps and controls when required by the applicable specification. The procedure recommends a recirculation system similar to ARP492 to control the fuel properties affecting the fluid and its ability to "release" fuel vapors and dissolved air and have these "re-entrained or dissolved" during the fluid recovery process back to the tank and the original starting conditions.

This procedure applies to engine or airframe-mounted fuel pumps. The procedure recommends single-pass operation to minimize changes in fuel properties affecting NPSP capability. An optional method using a recirculation system is also included and may be specified at the discretion of the equipment specification. This procedure defines the recommended test setup, test procedure, data acquisition, and data presentation.
