The inline sensor kit allows the user to monitor the cleanliness of either the hydraulic power unit or an aircraft system.
The inline sensor kit contains the inline sensor and various adaptor fittings that enable the inline sensor to be installed at the
end of the hydraulic power unit return hose ahead of the aircraft quick disconnect coupling. During installation, select the
proper fittings from this kit and install the inline sensor with the flow ARROW on the sensor pointed TOWARD the return hose.
After the inline sensor has been installed, it need not be removed. When not in use, assure dust caps are used.
How to use the unit with in-line sensor kits?
Cleaning The Hydraulic Power Unit
During normal scheduled maintenance of your hydraulic power unit it is suggested the unit be CLEANED and tested with the
contamination monitor and that the test data be maintained with the hydraulic power unit logs.
Cleaning is accomplished by connecting the hydraulic power unit pressure output hose to the return hose.
Monitoring Aircraft Systems
The contamination monitor used in conjunction with the inline sensor can be used to monitor aircraft system cleanliness.
The important factor here is to make sure the unit is receiving enough flow of hydraulic fluid from the aircraft throughout the
four (4) minute test.
