Aircraft Strut Gauge

 
Struts are still widely used to attach the landing gear, particularly in retractable-gear aircraft, and provide damping during the takeoff and landing roll.

An aircraft landing can create a substantial impact at the landing gear. This impact is absorbed by the aircraft struts. Struts are partially filled with hydraulic fluid and then serviced with nitrogen. You'll need to consult the aircraft service manuals or placards attached to the struts to find the exact type of hydraulic fluid to use and the required nitrogen pressure. The procedures for servicing aircraft struts will vary slightly depending on the particular type of aircraft involved, but the basic procedure is standard.

An oleo strut is an air–oil hydraulic shock absorber used on the landing gear of most large aircraft and many smaller ones. It cushions the impacts of landing and while taxiing and damps out vertical oscillations. When the aircraft is stationary on the ground, its weight is supported by the compressed air in the cylinder. During landing, or when the aircraft taxis over bumps, the piston slides up and down. Oleo struts are often inflated with nitrogen instead of air, since it is less likely to cause corrosion.

It is essential for maintenance personnel to always use a regulator or aircraft strut gauge when inflatinga strut assembly. Having reliable equipment means a safer operation. Calibration Specialty is a specialist in the sales and service of Aircraft Strut Gauges. Here are just a few of the aircraft strut gauge products available at Calibration Specialty.
