Induction Heater

Ludeca’s EDDYTHERM microprocessor controlled induction heater for bearings allows precise setting of time or temperature to prevent premature bearing failures due to overheating. The temperature probe continuously measures and displays actual temperature. A “standby” feature permits holding temperature at preset level for an indefinite time. The unit automatically demagnetizes bearings after heating. A light and buzzer signal termination of heating/demagnetizing cycle. Three models available. Shrink-fitting bearings, sleeves, sprockets, couplings, impellers, crane wheels and gears, etc., of up to 880 pounds is made easy, clean and quick. For more information call (305) 591-8935 or visit www.ludeca.com.

Engine Testing

James A. Staley offers a test stand that carries out maintenance and test procedures on fuel control units for the PT-6 Series engines. It is constructed of steel and designed so that controls are arranged for easy readability. Precision drive systems with fuel, air, and vacuum systems simulate actual aircraft systems. Instrumentation gauges measure fuel pressures, fuel flows, temperatures, and air pressures. The stand performs safely with Type II calibrating fluid Mil-C-7024C. Electrical components are either in explosion-proof boxes or air-purged boxes. For more information visit www.staleyco.com.

Leak Detector

The H2000 hydrogen leak detector from Sensistor Technologies uses a safe hydrogen mixture to detect and locate leaks. It can detect leaks as small as 0.5 ppm. It uses an inexpensive mixture of 5 percent hydrogen with 95 percent nitrogen instead of helium. The universal power supply accepts either 110v or 220v AC just by changing the power cord. As it is portable and easy to use it requires no training and can be used in confined spaces. For more information visit www.sensistor.com or call (978) 439-9200.

Fan Blade NDT

Approved NDT on Pratt & Whitney PW2000 fan blades to the “non-hooked” configuration per P&W instruction IEN 04FC066.

  • Reduced wear on the fan hub lug blade contact surface
  • More commonality for fan blade interchange
  • Improved performance
  • Reduced operating costs
