Page Count: 5
scope:

This AS describes a standard method for viscosity measurements of thickened (AMS1428) anti-icing fluids.

Fluid manufacturers may publish alternate methods for their fluids. In case of conflicting results between the two methods, the manufacturer method takes precedence.

To compare viscosities, exactly the same measurement elements (including spindle and container size) must have been used to obtain those viscosities.

Purpose

To provide a standard method for viscosity measurements. This method is intended to be used for field verification and auditing purposes to compare viscosities of different samples and to compare sample viscosities to limits published for aerodynamic acceptance and holdover time use.
