Project Description: 

The Austin Company engineered and constructed chemical processing lines for the Post Production Services Division of Goodrich Corporation in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. The lines were installed in an existing facility used to manufacture replacement components for Boeing aircraft no longer in production.

In the chemical processing lines where corrosion-resistant coatings are applied, aircraft parts are immersed into selected tanks, depending on the part and the coating system to be applied. Austin also constructed a chemical milling line in which material is removed from parts by an acid etch process to reduce weight.

Low-volume parts orders for out-of-production aircraft allow the entire operation to be manual, eliminating the need for expensive automatic control of process tank lids, overhead conveyors or parts.

In addition to installing chemical processing lines, Austin installed boilers; waste water pretreatment equipment; process piping, pumps, valves, exhaust systems and electrical equipment; rooftop equipment and a nitric acid storage tank.
