Abstract : The use of a hydraulic fluid to transmit power in aircraft presents many problems. One of the major areas of concern is fluid contamination. The contamination may take the form of inorganic material, metal particles, other minute particles, and water. This contamination requires that aviation ground support equipment be designed to eliminate as much as possible. The report deals with the preparation of a specification for ground support equipment hydraulic filters. Much of the theory concerning filtration is empirical in nature. This paper attempts to justify some of the empirical tests with theoretical work presented in the literature. Further, some of the requirements of the specification are included where appropriate.
