2-5. LEAKAGE CLASSIFICATION AND DEFINITION
It is necessary for you to know how fluid leakage affects the status of the Roller. The following are types/classes
of leakage an operator needs to know to be able to determine the status of the Roller. Learn these leakage
definitions and remember - when in doubt, notify your supervisor.
Equipment operation is allowable with minor leakages (Class I or II) with exception to fuel leakage.
Of course, consideration must be given to fluid capacity in the item/system being checked/inspected.
When in doubt, notify your supervisor.
When operating with Class I or II leaks, continue to check fluid levels as required in your PMCS.
Any fuel leak or Class III leaks should be reported immediately to your supervisor.
a. CLASS I - Seepage of fluid (as indicated by wetness or discoloration) not great enough to form drops.
b. CLASS II - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops but not enough to cause drops to drip from item
c. CLASS III - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops that fall from item being checked/inspected.
