This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the materials, apparatus and procedure for microscopic sizing and counting of particulate contamination of fluid power systems by membrane filtration using microscopic counting.
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) specifies test methods for tube-fitting assemblies used in aircraft fluid systems in the following pressure classes: B (1500 psi or 10500 kPa), D (3000 psi or 21000 kPa), E (4000 psi or 28000 kPa), and J (5000 psi or 35000 kPa) and in temperature types I (-65 to 160 °F or -55 to 70 °C), II (-65 to 275 °F or -55 to 135 °C), and III (-65 to 400 °F or -55 to 200 °C) of AS2001. This document applies each time that it is referred to in a procurement specification or other definition document. Fluids and materials used for the tests are listed in Section 2.
This specification defines the requirements for a threaded rigid coupling assembly, which utilizes ferrule type machined tube end fittings, to join tubing and components in aircraft fuel, vent, and other systems. This coupling assembly is designed for use from −65 to 200 °F and at 125 psig operating pressure.
This recommended practice establishes the requirements and procedures for Barkhausen Noise (BN) inspection of ferromagnetic steel components. Applications of the method are listed below in 1.2 through 1.5.
