Abstract

Testing of aircraft cryogenic components such as valves, pumps, etc., requires the usual torture testing plus the use of various cryogenic fluids. Consequently, many of the probelms are ordinary but some are extremely difficult to solve. The difficulties are greatest for small companies with limited resources who must either use the services of specialized testing agencies or do it themselves. The use of outside test laboratories is economically justified in many cases, although problems exist in scheduling, setting-up, delays, etc. This paper discusses the do-it-yourself approach.
