The article gives the assessment of the aviation engine technical status based on intensity of the flush x-ray fluorescence from its filter element. The evaluation rests on dependence of x-ray fluorescence analytical signal on the size of metal particles in the flush. The number of the large particles characterizes the level of wear of the engine.

Key words: x-ray fluorescence; aviation engine technical status; flush from filter element; impact of the size of particles on intensity; wear processes.
