When calibrating your aircraft nitrogen and oxygen there several factors that must be considered. By taking these factors into consideration, you can ensure accuracy and reliability in your equipment. Your calibration lab should be following these steps in order to properly care for you equipment. Below we have compiled a checklist that your calibration lab should be following in their routine calibration plan.
Maintain 45 to 50 psi tire pressure
Grease wheel bearings quarterly
Gauges on unit should be inspected and calibrated annually to maintain accuracy
Manifold inlet and outlet hoses should be inspected weekly for cracking or kinking; replace as necessary
Keep unit clean and away from contaminants. Visually inspect for any system leaks or damages
Check towing eye for bending, excessive wear, and/or deformity
Ensure towing eye mounting bolts are not loose or missing. Tighten to 25 ft-lbs or replace as required
If your unit is booster equipped, different procedures apply. All maintenance performed on high-pressure boosters should be conducted in accordance with all applicable codes governing the handling operation, installation, and troubleshooting. Maintenance should only be conducted by qualified persons. Follow these steps to ensure accuracy:
Air cycling valve in the booster pump should be lubricated twice per year or sooner if driven with nitrogen/oxygen, or used heavily
Gauges should be inspected and calibrated annually to ensure accuracy
Inlet shop air filter element should be inspected and calibrated annually or when a pressure drop of 15 psi is reached
WHAT EQUIPMENT NEEDS TO BE INSPECTED DURING GSE MAINTENANCE SERVICES
When servicing your aircraft hydraulics and oil dispensers, there are a handful of factors that must be considered. Each of these factors is crucial to ensure to ensure optimal functionality in your equipment. To help you understand each of these factors, we have compiled a checklist below. The filter is non-bypass design with a replaceable […]
In the aviation industry, proper aircraft inspection techniques can make the difference between life and death. Most inspections completed on aircraft today are visual inspections. However, not all areas of the aircraft can be accessed for visual inspection and some damage is too small to be detected visually. Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) was developed as a […]
