WIRE ROPE, FLEXIBLE, FOR AIRCRAFT CONTROL, GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR
|Publication Date:||15 August 1997|
This specification covers the requirements for carbon steel and corrosion resistant steel aircraft control flexible wire rope. The wire rope, Type I should be capable of operation within a −54°C to +121°C (−65° F to +250° F) temperature range in wind, dust, fuel and oil spills, in wash-down and other environmental stresses and aircraft experiences. Type II wire rope should be capable of operation within a −54 °C to +94° C (−65° F to +200 °F) temperature range in wind, dust, fuel and oil spills, in wash-down and other environmental stresses and aircraft experiences.
The wire rope should be furnished in the following types and compositions as specified (see 6.2).
The type of wire rope should be as follows:
Type I - Nonjacketed wire rope
Type II - Jacketed wire rope
The composition of the wire rope should be as follows:
Composition A - Carbon steel, zinc or tin over zinc coated
Composition B - Corrosion resistant steel
The wire rope covered by this specification is intended for use in aircraft flight control systems applications where high resistance is needed against corrosion, abrasion, and fatigue wear.
