These items are used in ground servicing of aircraft turbine engine lubricating oil systems. The adapter provides a connection for ground servicing equipment, using pressure synthetic lubricating and preservative oil. The nozzle is coupled to the adapter during servicing. The pressure cap acts as a secondary pressure seal and protects against foreign matter entering the adapter when not undergoing servicing. These military unique parts are critical to the servicing of aircraft turbine engines. The adapter is an integral part of the engine and must withstand a 2000°F (1093.33°C) fireproof requirement. The qualification process ensures these adapters meet this fire proof and operational requirements. The adapter, nozzle, pressure cap, and dust cap have to withstand temperature changes from -65°F to + 250°F (-54 to +121°C). Commercial adapters, nozzles, and caps are not designed to withstand these extreme conditions or sudden environmental changes, and would experience catastrophic failure.View Less
