P15681: Test Chamber Calibration Fluid Exhaust System/public/
Table of Contents
Project BackgroundEvery commercial aircraft engine nozzle that is manufactured requires a flow test to validate its operation. The flow medium is Stoddard solvent, Mil-PRF-7024F type II. Although harmless, the fluid has an odor which is offensive to many persons. Moreover, the fluid is very expensive and needs to be recovered for reuse. The current containment system is ineffective for both of these needs. This problem must be solved. The team is expected to identify all processes, equipment, and equipment designs which contribute to odor emission and fluid recovery issues; and then design, build and test a recovery system for at least one chamber testing the GE90 nozzle.
- A fully operational prototype that can be integrated onto AAT's 202 test chamber
- Necessary documentation for installation and use of the system onto the 202 tester as well as a set of instructions on how to adapt our system to other testers in the factory.
House of Quality
- Does not add more than 1 minute to the unit test process cycle time
- The system solution must be transportable to other test chambers
- Must fit in the current footprint
- Flow test materials and test procedures may not change
- Must meet all applicable wire & safety codes and specifications
