Cadorath Partners with Rolls-Royce for New Repair Offering
Cadorath, headquartered in Winnipeg, Canada, announces the completion of a new repair design in partnership with Roll-Royce. The new repair will fabricate and replace the air tube flanges on the Series IV outer combustion case (OCC). Cadorath currently offers complete overhaul on this component. It is also repairing the fuel nozzle boss and replacing the wire mesh patches with the dual patch.
Cadorath is a long-standing member of the M250 FIRST Network as an Authorized Repair Facility. At present it is the only facility qualified to complete all three repairs on the outer combustion case. Approximately 5,000 Series IV turbine engines are in service today that will benefit from the new repair.
“The repair design and qualification included thorough testing of the process for the replacement of the air tube flanges,” says Shane Zakaluk, director of Engineering and Quality Assurance for Cadorath. “There were many unique challenges along the way, but with dedication our learning opportunities became successes that were used to guide our path to completion of the repair and, ultimately, Rolls-Royce’s final approval.”
“We are very pleased to add this qualification to a long list of repairs and services that we offer,” says David R. Haines, chief operating officer for Cadorath. “This was a collaborative effort between our facilities located in Winnipeg, Canada; Lafayette, USA; and the Rolls-Royce team in Indianapolis to complete this qualification.”
