C90B ENGINE OPERATING LIMITATIONS

Operating Condition STARTING LOW IDLE HIGH IDLE TAKEOFF AND MAX CONT. CRUISE CLIMB AND REC (NORMAL) CRUISE MAX REVERSE (9) TRANSIENT
FOOTNOTES:
(1) Maximum permissible sustained torque is 1315 ft-lbs. Propeller speeds (N2) must be set so as not to exceed power limitation. (2) When gas generator speeds are above 72% N and oil temperatures are between 60ºC and 70ºC, normal oil pressure is 1 between 80 and 100 psi. During extremely cold starts, oil pressure may reach 200 psi. Oil pressure between 40 and 80 psi is undesirable; it should be tolerated only for the completion of the flight, and then only at a reduced power setting. Oil pressure below 40 psi is unsafe; it requires that either the engine be shut down, or that a landing be made at the nearest suitable airport, using the minimum power required to sustain flight. (3) For increased service life of engine oil, an oil temperature of between 74o to 80oC is recommended. A minimum oil temperature of 55oC is recommended for fuel heater operation at take-off power. (4) These values are time-limited to two seconds. (5) High ITT at ground idle may be corrected by reducing accessory load and/or increasing N1 RPM. (6) Cruise torque values vary with altitude and temperature. (7) Reverse power operation is limited to one minute. (8) High generator loads at low N1 speeds may cause the ITT transient temperature limit to be exceeded. Observe generator load limits.

oil pressure may reach 200 psi. (3) A minimum oil temperature of 55 ºC is recommended for fuel heater operation at take-off power. (6) High ITT at ground idle may be corrected by reducing accessory load and/or increasing N1 rpm. Below 1000 propeller rpm. Fluctuations of plus or minus 10 psi are acceptable. During extremely cold starts. a lower oil pressure limit of 60 psig is permissible at reduced power level not exceeding 62% torque. . using the minimum power required to sustain flight. Under emergency conditions. minimum oil pressure is 60 psig at normal oil temperature (60 degrees to 70 degrees C). (4) Oil temperature limits are –40 ºC and +110 ºC. to complete a flight. (2) Normal oil pressure is 90 to 135 psig at gas generator speeds above 72%. However. or a landing be made at the nearest suitable airport. (5) These values are time limited to 5 seconds. (8) These values are time limited to 20 seconds. With engine torque below 62%. Oil pressures below 60 psig are unsafe and require that either the engine be shut down. torque is limited to 62%. temperatures between 99 ºC and 110 ºC are limited to a maximum of 10 minutes.
