Aeroquip/statoflex hoses

Aeroquip/statoflex hoses

Do Aeroquip and/or statoflex hoses have a life limit of ten years? I have heard this before but can't find it in writing? If this is true where could I find it in writing?

Re: Aeroquip/statoflex hoses

In doing a little research I found this little tidbit. Bear in mind that this is a recommendation. In my shop when the hoses reach 8 years they go into the trash. I base my inspection methods on flexibility as once the hoses get hard and non flexible I replace them... Most shops use the 8 year rule as it has been set as an industry standard unless an AD takes presidence....."Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) AC No.20-7N, General Aviation Inspection Aids Summary, recommends, "all flexible flammable fluid carrying hoses in the engine compartment be replaced at engine overhaul or every five years which ever occurs first". Even when a calendar time life is specified for the hoses, it is necessary to have regular inspections for damage due to external forces to ensure continued airworthiness. Specification of a service life for hoses is not a substitute for regular inspection and maintenance of hoses."
