4-6. LEAKAGE DEFINITIONS.
It is necessary for you to know how fluid leakage affects
the status or your equipment. The following are
definitions of the types/classes of leakage you need to
know to be able to determine the status of your spreader.
Leakage Definitions for Unit PMCS
Seepage of fluid (as indicated by
wetness or discoloration) not great enough
to form drops.
Leakage of fluid great enough to form
drops, but not great enough to cause drops
to drip from the item being inspected.
Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops
that fall from the item being inspected.
Equipment operation is allowed with
minor leakage (Class I or II). Of
course, you must consider the fluid
capacity in the item/system being
checked/inspected. When in doubt,
notify your supervisor.
Class III leaks must be corrected before releasing the
spreader for operation.
