This SAE Recommended Practice provides guidance for defining the requirements for evaluating hydraulic pumps and motors and for preparing detailed specifications for these components. The user can follow this document to set forth the pump and motor environmental and performance considerations, establish service life and reliability goals, and define specific evaluation tests for marine vehicle applications.
This revision expands the scope to include motors as well as pumps for all marine vehicles, not just advanced surface craft and deep submersibles. It can be used to identify important parameters in hydraulic pump and motor selection even when a detailed pump or motor specification is not being prepared. Several reference documents have been deleted and a number of new reference documents, including many ISO standards have been added. Additional guidance on selection of fluids for preservation prior to installation of components has been provided.
