Protective Packaging Provides Aircraft Engine Covers and Aircraft Protection Solutions

  1. 1. Protective Packaging Provides Aircraft Engine Covers and Protection Protective Packaging offers a range of aircraft preservation products and kits. From tire covers to aircraft engine covers, you'll find what you need to keep rust and debris from your craft during shipping and storage. Below are a few case studies from our actual clients. F35 Joint Strike Fighter Packaged For Shipment Protective Packaging was asked to protect Lockheed Martin's new F35 Joint Strike Fighter for a shipment, first by truck to the Houston port, then by boat across the Atlantic to England. Since every imaginable harmful possibility comes to mind in such a trip, PPC had to prepare for the worst. Three different layers of protective materials were heat sealed, stitched, and shrunk to protect the jet. Desiccants and VCI emitters were added to remove absorb any additional moisture and provide a chemical rust protective coating for the extra insurance a multi-million dollar machine requires. The fighter made it safe and sound to its final destination and PPC has partnered up with Lockheed Martin for many more shipments of the newly designed fighter plane.
  2. 2. Packaged Engine for Refurbisher Recently, we were in Grapevine, TX packaging an engine for an aerospace company that refurbishes parts. This particular engine had to be packaged to endure shipping by truck and by boat to Peru. It was a challenge to package the engine while it was still hanging from the crane, but we were able to get it done, and done well! The solution required an inner bag of MIL-PRF-131 scrim and an outer layer of shrink wrap as well as 16 count desiccants. ERCO Aircraft Protection Out in the aircraft graveyards of Tucson, Arizona sat a sawed-in-half corpse of an old aircraft that Erco needed transported across the Northern Pacific, corrosion free. They called upon Protective Packaging to shrink wrap the entire shell in a UV-protected polyethylene material so once opened at its final destination, the harmful effects of humid air and salt water would be nil. In six hours, two Protective Packaging employees shrunk the entire body of the aircraft and had it strapped down ready to ship.
  3. 3. Large Commercial Engine Large commercial engines were being stored outside, wrapped with stretch film. The engines developed corrosion and had to be completely overhauled. Corrosion is a plight faced by everyone who works with metals. Its impact on the US economy has been documented at about 4% of the gross national product. It has also been estimated that about one third of the corrosion damage could be avoided. Such was the challenge in the case of large commercial engines. The resulting solution needed to be a combination of custom fitting, strong, and durable materials combined with a Volatile Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI). A custom made barrier bag was designed to fit over the engine but also fit inside the cradle holding the engine. The corrosion was totally eliminated, resulting in an annual savings in labor costs alone of $250,000. About Protective Packaging Protective Packaging specializes in protecting products, equipment, and machinery from corrosion, electrostatic discharge, contaminants, ultraviolet rays and dust during shipping and storage. Protective Packaging makes aircraft protection simple with customized solutions to meet your specific needs. For more information, please visit: http://www.protectivepackaging.net/
