9. Inspection Procedures.
The T-62T-40-1 APU may be operated with the emergency barrier filter P/N PSF31BH6X28. The
barrier wrap filter shall be used to minimize engine sand ingestion in a heavy sand and dust
Operating the APU with a clogged inlet filter can result in insufficient pressure across the APU
labyrinth seal. This will cause the seal to leak resulting in oil starvation of the APU bearings
and subsequent catastrophic failure of the unit.
a. Inspect the APU inlet screen for serviceability in accordance with TM 55-2835-208-23, Task 2-2.
Pressure gradient across the barrier filter will cause an improperly installed (loose) screen to
collapse into the air inlet housing.
Housing supports should be located at the 4, 8, and 12 o'clock positions.
