Southern Propeller Services uses specialist equipment, calibrated tooling and processes in the inspection and overhaul of aircraft propellers. During the overhaul process, blades are measured for serviceability, the propellers are dismantled, stripped of protective coatings and inspected. Any rework required is carried out, the components have protective coatings applied, painted and reassembled with mandatory replacement parts. All work is carried out in accordance with the appropriate manufacturers overhaul manuals.
We stock a large range of parts required for repairs and overhauls to minimize turnaround times.
Composite Blade Overhaul
Magnetic Particle Inspection
Process for detecting surface and shallow subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials. Detection of the discontinuities is achieved by establishing a magnetic field in the test part, applying magnetic particles to the surface which collect at the site of the discontinuity.
Fluorescent Particle Inspection
Fluorescent Dye is applied to the surface of the test piece. The part is inspected under black light to detect flaws in non-ferromagnetic parts.
Eddy Current Inspection
Process for using electromagnetic induction to detect surface and subservice flaws in conductive materials.
