Wear Gauge, bottom load / aircraft – Gammon GTP-8963
This gauge tests fueling adapters for excessive wear in less than one minute.
Leakage during refueling is often caused by excessive wear on the underside of the three lugs that are located on the outer edge of the fueling adapter. This wear reduces the sealing force between the nose seal of the refueling nozzle and the sealing face on the adapter.
