FUEL CELL MAINTENANCE
For nearly two decades, AFC has been an Approved Maintenance Organisation to the Australian Defence Force delivering fuel cell maintenance & storage management services for a variety of aircraft, including, but not limited to:
- F/A-18 Hornet
- F/A-18 Super Hornet
- C130 Hercules
- Hawk 127
- CH-47 Chinook
- Sea Sprite
AFC's fuel cell support services provided to the ADF have resulted in dramatically reduced repair costs and lead times to the ADF. It has been reported that our support services have resulted in a cost reduction of up to 80% with equally impressive reductions in turn-around times.
We have now extended our capacities to supporting Foreign Defence Forces in the same way.
EQUIPMENT, STORAGE & MANAGEMENT
AFC's warehousing is climate-controlled & secure. AFC's warehousing management is flexible & can be scaled to support all customer requirements.
EMERGENCY FLOAT / LIFERAFT MAINTENACE
AFC's unique capabilities have also been utilised by the Australian Defence Force to support their helicopter flotation systems for the now retired Sea Sprite. Support services provided included float repairs and testing, pressure vessel testing & re-qualification, valve overhaul, gas re-filling and assembly packing.
CYLINDER TESTING & CERTIFICATION
AFC is a Certified Gas Cylinder Test Station providing testing and repair services to seamless, composite, welded and brazed cylinders.
AFC has seen a need for faster turn-arounds on pressure vessel re-qualification and has committed to a standard turn-around time for hydrostatic testing and re-filling pressure vessels is 24-48 hours.
