Abstract : The use of Ferrography as a means to detect elastomer wear in aircraft hydraulic systems is explored. A method is described which increases the deposition of elastomer material on the Ferrogram. Nine distinct seal wear mechanisms are identified. Metallic wear debris from different sample points is compared. (Author)
