Ether NDE, a UK-based manufacturer of eddy current products, offers the VEESCAN ET wheel inspection system. It is available in two different models, VEESCAN H for maximum flexibility and VEESCAN R for optimized productivity. It is ideal in all aircraft wheel-testing environments and can be configured with a wide choice of probes and allows any wheel testing facility the flexibility to select the system most compatible with its workload. Teamed with a full choice of operation modes, the VEESCAN maximizes the probability of detection. Available in two configurations, VEESCAN H is designed to lift the wheel and fix it with an automatic adaptor that uses the wheel inertia to center it. VEESCAN H offers an integrated roller tray for easy maneuverability and integration into a conveyor system and can test wheels up to 900 mm diameter. The H is designed with an adjustable-height control panel for operator comfort and can be positioned at a convenient distance from the main machine. Open on three sides, the VEESCAN H offers easy wheel loading as standard. Alternatively VEESCAN R clamps the wheel to a turntable with a pneumatic cylinder. With pneumatic control and electronics fitted into the frame it allows access to the rotating table from both sides. On the rotating table, three rollers assist the wheel movement from three open sides. Able to test wheels of two size ranges, under 600 mm and 900 mm simultaneously; the Model R is as flexible as it is robust and reliable. For more information visit www.ethernde.com.

- Product From Spectronics Corporation
Spectronics Corp. has introduced the MDE-2000NC Marksman II, an ultrasonic diagnostic tool that converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible “natural” sound. This highly advanced tool allows the technician to “hear” even the smallest compressed air, natural gas, propane tank, vacuum, steam, and other pressurized leaks … before they lead to major breakdowns. The receiver converts inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible sound using heterodyne circuitry. Then, its unique Sound Signature Technology finetunes the audible sound into the natural sound emitted by the leak itself. A 5-LED signal intensity indicator and audible alarm pinpoint the exact source of the problem. An Internal Noise Control (INC) feature safeguards against ambient noise. For more information visit
- Product From UniWest
In response to customer interest in a lower-cost, limited-feature, eddy current testing system for jet engine components weighing up to 30 pounds, NDT innovator, UniWest, has developed a new tabletop, 3-axis, semi
- Product From Aircraft Tool Supply Company
The ATS Spark Plug Cleaner and Tester is the perfect choice for anyone who needs to reliably and accurately check the quality of used spark plugs. Aircraft Tool Supply is the sole distributor of this highly efficient product. Recently, they have equipped the cleaner and tester with both 120- and 220-volt sources and advanced circuitry to prevent thermal overload during heavier use. The cleaner section uses a powerful blast of air and abrasive to thoroughly remove carbon deposits from plugs. The recessed observation mirror is perfectly angled to display the electrode of the spark plug so that you can clearly judge the quality of the spark as the plug is being tested.

- Product From Spectroline
The Spectroline MLK-35A MAXIMA Leak Detection UV Kit pinpoints the exact source of leaks in hydraulic, engine oil, and aircraft fuel systems. The kit features the super-powerful MAXIMA ultraviolet lamp and an 8-ounce (237 ml) bottle of Aero-Brite universal fluorescent dye, which locates all leaks in petroleum- and synthetic-based aviation fluid systems. The lamp’s state-of-the-art Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology delivers up to 10 times the UV-A output of conventional High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps. It is so powerful that it can be used in direct sunlight. This makes it ideal for outdoor inspections on tarmacs and in open hangars. For more information call (800) 274-8888 or visit

- Product From Tronair Inc.
The Tronair Cabin Pressure Tester utilizes an external compressed air supply for pressurizing and testing the integrity of the aircraft cabin, door, canopy seal and outflow and safety valves. The compressed air is supplied to a filter/separator through a safety valve, a high flow precision regulator, passed through a flowmeter and then out to the aircraft cabin. The rate of climb indicator allows the operator to monitor the system while pressurizing and depressurizing the aircraft. For more information visit
- Product From Master Appliance
Master Appliance’s Proheat STC Surface Temperature Control Heat Gun, Model PH-1600, quickly brings work surface temperatures up to your programmed target, while preventing over or under-heating. An electronically integrated IR sensor provides continuous surface temperature readings and automatically regulates heat to reach and maintain your target temperature, even with changes in the heat gun’s distance from the work surface. It has high power, temperature and airflow ratings, and dial-in, programmable surface temperatures of 90 F to 500 F. (40 C to 270 C), displayed in 10-degree increments in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. Airflow is adjustable from 4 to 16 cfm. It is ideal for use in manual prepreg lay-up in composite parts manufacturing and rework. For more information call (800) 558-9413 or visit

- Product From Westmor Industries, LLC
Westmor Industries, a leading manufacturer of fuel and liquid-handling systems and components, announces a new product offering for their Aviation division, the Mobile Fuel Testing System. The system provides aviation refueling personnel the opportunity to sample, filter and return fuel with an easy-to-use closed-loop system, virtually eliminating jet fuel sampling waste. Quick payback should be possible as all clean and dry fuel utilized in filter changes, delivery samples, and sump samples can be returned to inventory rather than being discarded. Westmor even offers an online calculator to provide an estimate of how quickly the new test system will pay for itself in annual fuel savings:
