IDG Servicing - Filling of the IDG with Oil or Addition of Oil after a level
Check

WARNING: BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU WORK ON THE ENGINE


COMPONENTS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ENGINE IS SHUTDOWN.
THE ENGINE COMPONENTS CAN STAY HOT FOR UP TO ONE HOUR.
WARNING: WEAR GOGGLES, INSULATED GLOVES AND OTHER
PROTECTIVE CLOTHES. HOT OIL CAN BURN YOUR EYES AND
SKIN. IF OIL TOUCHES YOUR EYES OR SKIN, GET MEDICAL AID.
CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE IDG:
◦ IF IT CONTAINS TOO MUCH OIL
◦ IF IT DOES NOT CONTAIN ENOUGH OIL
IF YOU DO, YOU CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE IDG.
CAUTION: USE ONLY NEW CANS OF OIL WHEN YOU FILL THE IDG
WITH OIL OR ADD OIL TO THE IDG. THE CONTAMINATION IN OIL
THAT STAYS IN OPEN CANS CAN CAUSE FAST DETERIORATION OF
THE OIL AND WILL DECREASE THE LIFE OF THE IDG.
CAUTION: REMOVE THE REMAINING OIL FROM THE FILLING
EQUIPMENT. FILL THE EQUIPMENT ONLY WITH NEW CANS OF
OIL BEFORE YOU FILL THE IDG WITH OIL OR ADD OIL TO THE
IDG. THE CONTAMINATION IN THE OIL THAT STAYS IN THE
FILLING EQUIPMENT CAN CAUSE FAST DETERIORATION OF THE
OIL AND WILL DECREASE THE LIFE OF THE IDG.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE SOLVENTS THAT CONTAIN CHLORINE TO
CLEAN THE EQUIPMENT (PUMP, HOSES, TANK AND FUNNEL) USED
TO FILL THE IDG WITH OIL. CHLORINE CONTAMINATION OF THE
OIL CAN CAUSE FAST DETERIORATION OF THE OIL AND WILL
DECREASE THE LIFE OF THE IDG.
CAUTION: DO NOT DO THE SERVICING OF A DISCONNECTED IDG.
CONTINUED OPERATION OF A DEFECTIVE IDG CAN CAUSE
DAMAGE.

4. Procedure
Subtask 12-13-24-864-055-A ** ON A/C NOT FOR ALL
A. Depressurization of the IDG Case
WARNING: POINT THE OVERFLOW DRAIN HOSE INTO A
CONTAINER WHEN YOU CONNECT THE HOSE TO THE OVERFLOW
DRAIN HALF-COUPLING. THIS WILL PREVENT BURNS FROM THE
HOT OIL SPRAY. HOT OIL CAN CAUSE BURNS TO EYES AND SKIN.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE DEVICES OTHER THAN THE APPROVED
OVERFLOW DRAIN-HOSE FITTING. HARD METAL OBJECTS SUCH
AS SCREWDRIVERS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE OVERFLOW
DRAIN HALF-COUPLING SEAT.
(1) Put a CONTAINER 10 L(2 1/2 USGAL) below the IDG.
(2) Remove the dust cap (3) from the overflow drain half-coupling (4).
(3) Put the end of the overflow drain hose (7) of the FILLING EQUIPMENT -
TANK OIL, DH13PM TYP in the CONTAINER 10 L(2 1/2 USGAL).
(4) Do this step to depressurize the IDG case:
(a) Connect the overflow drain hose (7) of the FILLING EQUIPMENT -
TANK OIL, DH13PM TYP to the overflow drain half-coupling (4).
NOTE: Some oil can come out of the overflow drain hose (7) of the FILLING
EQUIPMENT - TANK OIL, DH13PM TYP when you connect it.
Subtask 12-13-24-612-056-A ** ON A/C NOT FOR ALL
CAUTION: USE ONLY APPROVED TYPES/BRANDS OF LUBRICANTS.
DO NOT MIX TYPES//BRANDS OF LUBRICANTS.
B. Filling of the IDG with Oil
NOTE: In case of OIL type/brand change, refer to (Ref. AMM TASK 24-21-00-
612-045).
NOTE: In rain, fog or wet conditions, be careful to prevent water contamination of
the IDG oil during the filling procedure.
(1) Remove the dust cap (2) from the pressure fill half-coupling (1).
(2) Connect the pressure fill hose of the FILLING EQUIPMENT - TANK
OIL, DH13PM TYP to the pressure fill half-coupling (1).
(3) Fill the IDG with filtered Synthetic base Lubricating Oil-Turbine Engine - -
(Material No.03ABA1) at a maximum pressure of 35 psi (2.4132 bar).
NOTE: The AMM 20-34-00 gives a list of oil brand-names approved for IDG.
(4) Stop the filling procedure when the quantity of oil collected from the
overflow drain hose (7) of the FILLING EQUIPMENT - TANK OIL, DH13PM
TYP is 0.95 l (0.2510 USgal) minimum.
NOTE: Look at the oil level sightglass of the IDG:
• the oil level must be at or near the line between the yellow and green bands,
• if the oil level is not at this position, go to step C.(3).
Subtask 12-13-24-080-057-A ** ON A/C NOT FOR ALL
C. Removal of the Hoses
(1) Disconnect the pressure fill hose of the FILLING EQUIPMENT - TANK
OIL, DH13PM TYP from the pressure fill half-coupling (1).
(2) Install the dust cap (2) on the pressure fill half-coupling (1).
(3) Wait for the flow of oil from the overflow drain hose (7) to decrease and
become only drops.
(4) Remove the overflow drain hose (7).
(5) Install the dust cap (3) on the overflow drain half-coupling (4).
Subtask 12-13-24-710-052-A ** ON A/C NOT FOR ALL
D. If you replaced a part of the oil system (filter, external system component or
drain plug), do the tests that follow for leak check before inspection:
• An idle power test (recommended procedure) (Ref. AMM TASK 71-00-00-710-
006) or
• A dry motoring (alternative procedure) (Ref. AMM TASK 71-00-00-710-001).
Subtask 12-13-24-210-053-A ** ON A/C NOT FOR ALL
E. Inspection of the Oil Level
NOTE: To fill the external oil system to its maximum level before the oil level
check, it is necessary to:
• Operate the engine at minimum idle (Ref. AMM TASK 71-00-00-710-003) or
• Do the dry motoring of the engine (Ref. AMM TASK 71-00-00-710-001) for
two minutes.
NOTE: The IDG oil temperature is shown on the lower ECAM display unit. If the
oil temperature is the same as the ambient air temperature, the oil is cold. If the oil
temperature is more than the ambient air temperature, the oil is hot.
(1) Inspection of the oil level after an engine run (recommended procedure).
(a) Let the oil in the IDG become stable for 5 minutes.
(b) Look at the oil level sightglass of the IDG:
1 If the oil is cold:
• If the oil level is at or near the top of the green band, oil servicing is not
necessary.
• If the oil level is below the green band, do steps 4.A. thru 4.D. again.
• If the oil level is above the green band, do steps 4.A. and 4.C. again.
2 If the oil is hot:
• If the oil level is in the yellow band, oil servicing is not necessary.
• If the oil level is below the green band, do steps 4.A. thru 4.D. again.
• If the oil level is above the yellow band, wait until the IDG oil temperature is the
same as the ambient temperature. Then do steps 4.A. and 4.C. again.
NOTE: After the oil level correction, no more engine run is necessary.
NOTE: If the oil level is below the middle of the green band, we recommend that
you fill the IDG.
(2) Inspection of the oil level after the dry motoring (alternative procedure).
CAUTION: IF YOU DRY-MOTOR THE ENGINE, MAKE SURE THAT
THE OIL LEVEL IS STABLE BEFORE YOU DO THE INSPECTION.
THE OIL LEVEL WILL BECOME STABLE ONLY AFTER 30 MINUTES.
THUS THE LEVEL INDICATIONS ON THE SIGHTGLASS WILL NOT
BE CORRECT BEFORE THE END OF THIS PERIOD. IF YOU ADD OIL
WHEN IT IS NOT NECESSARY, THERE IS A RISK THAT YOU WILL
CAUSE FAILURE OF THE IDG.
(a) Wait for thirty minutes to let the oil in the IDG become stable.
(b) Look at the oil level sightglass of the IDG:
1 If the oil is cold:
• If the oil level is at or near the top of the green band, oil servicing is not
necessary.
• If the oil level is below the green band, do steps 4.A. thru 4.D. again.
• If the oil level is above the green band, do steps 4.A. and 4.C. again.
2 If the oil is hot:
• If the oil level is in the yellow band, oil servicing is not necessary.
• If the oil level is below the green band, do steps 4.A. thru 4.D. again.
• If the oil level is above the yellow band, wait until the IDG oil temperature is the
same as the ambient temperature. Then do steps 4.A. and 4.C. again.
NOTE: After the oil level correction, no more dry motoring is necessary.
NOTE: If the oil level is below the middle of the green band, we recommend that
you fill the IDG.
