Customer Benefits

The Camtronics Repair Specifications (RS) create a highly cost-effective repair solution in comparison with new OEM drain mast replacement. The FAA/DER approved repair virtually eliminates BER rates whilst achieving consistent performance and reliability.


Technical Synopsis

The RS comprises four primary features; Functional testing, fairing repair, heater repair and flange repair.

The primary failures of a Drain mast can be attributed to fairing damage and electrical faults (heater failure) associated with severe environmental conditions, functional cycling, moisture intrusion or FOD / Ice damage.

  1. Functional Testing - Using state-of-the-art-equipment and technology, the drain mast receives complete functional and thermal cycle testing.
  2. Fairing - The fairing is an aerodynamic composite or aluminum component which protects the drain mast internal components; tube assy, heaters and electrical features. As a result of normal service life, FOD damage or water intrusion, the fairing can exhibit surface damage and / or cracking which negatively affects the overall performance of the drain mast. Faults such as erosion, surface imperfections, minor cracking and damaged surface coatings are repaired. Complete fairing replacement is offered on selected part numbers.
  3. Heaters - Drain mast heaters are of the flexible (wrap) or rigid Cal-rod/cartridge configuration but each style often exhibit faults attributed to electrical breakdown due to recurrent cycling and severe environmental conditions. The Camtronics RS repairs faults and / or fits the drain mast tube assembly with new Camtronics fabricated heaters on selected part numbers.
  4. Flange - Depending on the drain mast part number, the flange may be an integral part of the fairing or a separate component. In either case, the mounting flange may exhibit surface corrosion or damage which is repaired by means of the RS. In addition to repair, Camtronics offers complete flange replacement on selected part numbers.

Summary

The various Camtronics drain mast repair programs create a reliable, cost-effective and quality repair for air carriers, operators and aircraft owners worldwide. The Repair Specification(s) afford the customer the opportunity to reduce maintenance cost whilst improving MTBF (mean time before failure) expectations. The RS and associated Engineering Substantiation documentation is available for review upon request. FAA approval documents (form 8110-3) are accessible by selecting the link listed in the above table.
