Evaluation of Gas Turbine Engine Lubricant Compatibility with Elastomer Slabs - Long Duration Test

2018-12-10
CURRENT
ARP6917
This test method provides procedures for exposing specimens of elastomer material (slab form) representative to those used in gas turbine engines to aviation lubricants under extended duration and engine relevant thermal conditions. For AS5780 requirements the time is at least 1800 hours and temperatures are 100 °C to 160 °C. Positive volume change is an indication of specimen swell and subsequent negative volume change is an indication of specimen deterioration, both properties are important in the evaluation of the compatibility of the lubricant with elastomers used in the construction of the gas turbine.

CURRENT
AS5780D
This specification defines basic physical, chemical, and performance limits for 5 cSt grades of gas turbine engine lubricating oils used in aero and aero-derived marine and industrial applications, along with standard test methods and requirements for laboratories performing them. It also defines the quality control requirements to assure batch conformance and materials traceability, and the procedures to manage and communicate changes in oil formulation and brand. This specification invokes the Performance Review Institute (PRI) product qualification process. Requests for submittal information may be made to the PRI at the address in Appendix D Section D.2, referencing this specification. Products qualified to this specification are listed on a Qualified Products List (QPL) managed by the PRI. Additional tests and evaluations may be required by individual equipment builders before an oil is approved for use in their equipment.

WAM Pressure-Viscosity Coefficient Measurement

2017-05-18
CURRENT
ARP6157
The lubricant performance capability for aero propulsion drive systems is derived from the physical properties of the oil and performance attributes associated with the chemical properties of the oil. Physical properties, such as viscosity, pressure-viscosity coefficient and full-film traction coefficient are inherent properties of the lubricating fluid. Chemical attributes are critical for the formation of protective boundary lubricating films on the surfaces to prevent wear and scuffing. These attributes are also associated with surface initiated fatigue (micropitting). To assure performance and to provide required information for engineering design, methodology for at least five oil properties are being studied: (1) pressure-viscosity coefficient, (2) full-film traction coefficient, (3) scuffing resistance, (4) wear resistance; and (5) micropitting propensity.

ARP6156
The lubricant performance capability for aero propulsion drive systems is derived from the physical properties of the oil and the chemical attributes associated with the oil formulation. All properties, such as viscosity, pressure-viscosity coefficient and full-film traction coefficient are inherent properties of the lubricating fluid. Chemical attributes are critical for the formation of protective boundary lubricating films on the surfaces to prevent wear and scuffing. To assure performance and to provide needed information for engineering design, test methodologies for at least five oil properties or attributes are being addressed: (1) pressure-viscosity coefficient, (2) full-film traction coefficient, (3) scuffing resistance, (4) wear resistance, and (5) micropitting propensity. While viscosity versus temperature data are readily available, the above five properties or attributes must be measured under relevant conditions for aero propulsion hardware systems.

this document is intended as an educational guide that outlines the types of changes to synthetic turbine oils managed by the AS5780 Qualified Product Group (QPG). The document describes and provides examples for the Management of Change classifications listed in AS5780 Section 10 and as appropriate links these to the allowable Manufacturing Tolerances listed in AS5780 Section 7. The document also describes the oil certification differences between Major and Minor changes being evaluated by the AS5780 QPG.

ARP5996C
This method is designed to evaluate the coking propensity of synthetic ester-based aviation lubricants under single phase flow conditions found in certain parts of gas turbine engines, for instance in bearing feed tubes. This method is applicable to lubricants with a coking propensity, as determined by this method, falling in the range 0.01 to 5.00 mg.

ARP6223
An oil sample is placed into an open top glass vial which is then inserted into a stainless steel pressure vessel. The vessel is then sealed, pressurized, and placed into a heated aluminum block bath for 18 hours. At the end of the 18 hour time period, the vessel is removed from the heat source and allowed to cool to room temperature at which time the contents of the vial are filtered and the total sediment is reported as milligrams of sediment per 20 mL of oil.

The test method describes the procedure for determination of the total acid number of new and degraded polyol ester and diester based gas turbine lubricants by potentiometric titration technique. The method was validated to cover an acidity range 0.05 to 6.0 mg KOH g-1. The method may also be suitable for the determination of acidities outside of this range and for other classes of lubricant.

Evaluation of Coking Propensity of Aviation Lubricants in an Air-Oil Mist Environment using the Vapor Phase Coker

2014-04-03
CURRENT
ARP5921
This method is designed to evaluate the coking propensity of synthetic ester-based aviation lubricants under two phase air-oil mist conditions as found in certain parts of a gas turbine engine, for instance, bearing chamber vent lines. Based on the results from round robin data in 2008–2009 from four laboratories, this method is currently intended to provide a comparison between lubricants as a research tool; it is not currently a satisfactory pass/fail test. At this juncture a reference oil may improve reproducibility (precision between laboratories); a formal precision statement will be given when there is satisfactory data and an agreed on, suitable reference oil if applicable.

Jet Oil Thermal Aging Test Procedure

WIP
ARP6299
This method is designed to evaluate the changes in the chemical and physical properties of gas turbine engine lubricants subjected to elevated temperaures in the presence of air. The results are primarily applicable to low-oil-consumption gas turbine engines which do not experience regular additions of top-off oil. This is the initial documentation of this procedure and is intended to harmonize test procedures and report. The industry will need to conduct a round robin based on this procedure to develop precision statements.
