When a CH-47 Chinook helicopter needs a change of hydraulic fluid, the task is performed by a kit provided by Y2K Fluid Power, Inc., St. Paul. This kit consists of a portable filter cart, two stainless steel drums – one for clean oil and another for dirty oil – and two breather adapter kits. Y2K designed the drum breather kit to access soils through quick-acting couplings, making oil handling safe and clean. The couplings also keep contamination from entering during the transfer of oil, and all reservoirs and kept closed and sealed.
