AeroShell Landing Gear Fluid (5 GLN)
- UN3082, 9, (III)
AeroShell Shock Strut Fluid (SSF) and AeroShell Landing Gear Fluid (LGF) are mineral hydraulic fluids (MIL-PRF-6083 and MIL-PRF-5606 respectively) to which additional additives have been added to improve the extreme pressure characteristics and the fluid’s natural lubricity. The lubricity agent provides a stable thin film layer to the metal surfaces at mild operating conditions. When severe conditions exist (landing/touchdown), the extreme pressure additive supplies the load carrying needed at the metal-to-metal surfaces to prevent the occurrence of such phenomena as “ladder cracking” and “slip stiction” of the piston component of the landing gear.
AeroShell SSF is AeroShell Fluid 71 plus additives.
AeroShell LGF is AeroShell Fluid 41 plus additives.
AeroShell SSF and LGF are straw yellow in colour.
AeroShell SSF is recommended for all normal applications whilst the better low temperature properties of AeroShell LGF make it particularly suitable in areas of low temperature operations.
AeroShell SSF and AeroShell LGF are compatible with each other as well as with AeroShell Fluids 4, 41 and 71.
Joint Service Designation:
