Particulate contamination is one of the sources of failure in an aircraft helicopter hydraulic system which may result in high risks, both in human life and financial cost if failure occurs during mission critical flight conditions. Fortunately, contamination induced failures can be minimized if appropriate contamination control strategies are applied during design and maintenance activities. This paper reveals improved contamination control design that was introduced by PTI, working with the U.S. Army to improve performance and reduce maintenance cost of helicopters thereby improving aircraft reliability and safety.
