AMETEK MRO AEM Introduces NEW Heat Exchanger Repair Capabilities

AMETEK MRO AEM has expanded heat exchanger capabilities at its Ramsgate facility in the UK. This is due to increased customer demand from operators of A320, B737 and B757 aircraft fleets. These are all platforms currently supported by AMETEK MRO Drake Air in Tulsa, Ohio, and AEM has worked in close partnership with Drake Air to transfer knowledge and experience via a comprehensive technician training programme to develop additional in-house capability in Europe.

AMETEK MRO has devoted a substantial investment to AEM with the provision of tooling, test equipment and exchange units to sustain a highly efficient and reliable service.

Andy Wheeler - Divisional Vice President & Managing Director, AMETEK MRO AEM explains why this supplementary service is needed. “In Europe, there is limited support for heat transfer outside of the OEM providers. AMETEK MRO’s investment in AEM will provide a solution where customers will be able to get local (European) support for repairs with a broad capability covering a variety of aircraft types, thus providing a one-stop solution for operators of common aircraft and mixed fleets with the tangible benefit of quick turn-around times.”

AEM and Drake Air have collaborated and undertaken a comprehensive training programme to be able to offer customers flush and test, weld and resin, as well as core replacement for heat exchangers, with full CAA, FAA and EASA approval.

Wheeler adds, “Over the years Drake Air has engineered many DER solutions with the development of replacement cores for most popular heat transfer products. These offer equivalent reliability and attendant cost savings for those operators seeking such solutions.”
