MIL-H-5606 Properties

MIL-H-5606 Properties

Hello all,
I am trying to find a good reference for the fluid properties of MIL-H-5606 oil. This MIL spec is used for test data of flow through a filter. Can anyone help?
Thank you in advance.

RE: MIL-H-5606 Properties

When I look at the specification for MIL-H-5606 it provides the fluid properties.

RE: MIL-H-5606 Properties

Is there a difference between 5606A and 5606?
I also don't have a copy of the MIL Spec and can't seem to find it on the web.

RE: MIL-H-5606 Properties

The MIL-5606 spec has been superseded by MIL-PRF-5606. If you only need basic data for filter tests you may find them in this booklet: https://www.shell.com/business-customers/aviation/...

Basically MIL-PRF-5606 is a low viscosity mineral oil based hydraulic oil with extra cleanliness requirements.

Thank you! This is perfect!
