The UH-60 Chip Detector Removal Tool is used to shut off flow, remove, and install the main module sump chip detector and strainer assembly. A compact, functional design greatly reduces the chance of component damage and enables a single operator to perform the task.
The UH-60 Chip Detector Removal Tool is designed to fit precisely on the chip detector sleeve and rotate the strainer to the ON or OFF flow position. The tool’s prying function is then used to ease chip detector away from transmission sump, breaking the hydraulic suction lock. The operator uses only one hand to operate the UH-60 Chip Detector Removal Tool, allowing the other hand to be used to collect draining oil safely and easily. Removal of the chip detector/strainer is performed quickly, easily, and safely; no work package tool is available in the IETM that can perform this task.
