Better Hydraulic Systems Service

echanics, hydraulic system contamination causes aircraft problems and can cause
crashes. Servicing aircraft reservoirs has been a problem.
Take the Apache, for example. The
old way of servicing its reservoirs
• open cans of hydraulic fluid
• the use of potentially dirty tubes
(which can cause contamination)
• sucking air into the reservoir.
But now the Army has a new stan-
dard 2-gal reservoir servicing unit
(RSU). It provides quick disconnects
and an easy and quick way to refill
aircraft reservoirs with clean, mois-
ture- and air-free hydraulic fluid. The
RSU is a another tool to make serv-
icing a little easier.
