Aerobraze, a division of Wall Colmonoy, specializes in the manufacture of new design and overhaul of Tube & Shell and Fin & Plate Type Heat Transfer Equipment for Aerospace and Industrial applications.
In 1950, Wall Colmonoy developed Nicrobraz® and pioneered high temperature furnace brazing, which is used extensively in the heat exchanger manufacturing process.
Following this, we developed the very first heat exchanger overhaul procedure. Today, Nicrobraz® and the next generations of processes and procedures are used extensively in heat exchanger manufacture and overhaul. Wall Colmonoy continues to develop its brazing and manufacturing expertise resulting in increased efficiencies, significant cost savings and performance improvements.
Applications include but not limited to:
Assemblies manufactured and overhauled to meet stringent U.S. military requirements including operation under environmentally extreme conditions from -65 to 1650°F (-54 to 900°C) and complex non-military applications. Corrosion durable assemblies resist cracking and failure over long-term use.
Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze’s process capabilities for stainless steel and Inconel heat exchangers on military aircraft include in-house fin manufacturing; in-house metal stamping and forming; and in-house brazing and heat treating. Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze is also capable of supporting aluminum heat exchangers for commercial and military aircraft.
F-15 Heat Exchangers
Having developed the first heat exchanger re-core procedures for the US Air Force (USAF) in the 1980s, Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze’s brazing and manufacturing expertise has resulted in increased efficiencies and significant cost savings in maintaining and extending the life of critical F-15 operations for the USAF.
Over the last 15 years, Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze has overhauled more than 2,000 Heat Exchangers for the USAF. The overhaul process includes 100% replacement of all tubes, replacement of any non-serviceable manifold component parts, inspection and performance testing in accordance with USAF Technical Order.
Since 2013 Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze has manufactured nearly 500 F-15 Fin & Plate Heat Exchangers for DLA (USAF) & FMS Customers.
F-16 Heat Exchangers
Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze overhauls and re-core F-16 Primary/Secondary Heat Exchangers. In the 1990s, Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze developed the Overhaul / Re-Core process for the US Air Force (USAF) and is a US Air Force (USAF) Approved Contractor.
Capabilities include in-house manufacturing of all core details including fin material, high volume capacity for Inconel cores, and shelf stock inventory of ready-to-use replacement cores to support quick turnaround times for FMS Community. Overhaul / Re-Core pricing for FMS users available upon request.
Heat Exchanger and Oil Coolers
Wall Colmonoy Aerobraze reverse engineers and manufactures replacement heat exchanger cores for a wide variety of commercial aircraft.
Capabilities include in-house manufacturing of all core details including fin material, high volume capacity for aluminium cores, and shelf stock inventory of ready-to-use replacement cores to support quick turnaround times for the MRO Market.
