MTU Maintenance Canada expands pneumatic starter testing


MTU Maintenance Canada installed and implemented a new test cell for high-flow pneumatic starter testing capabilities. It provides customers with more integrated services, faster turnaround times, better logistics, and cost-efficiency.

The new testing equipment can generate up to 1,500 standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM) of continuous flow and 8,000 SCFM of instantaneous flow – one of the largest air flow capacities for starter testing globally. Consisting of a compressor, mist eliminator, dryer and air receivers, the system produces ISO 8573-1: 2010 [parts 1,2,1] quality air and can be used to test starters from 25 different engine types, including the largest commercial engine worldwide, the GE90. Currently, MTU Maintenance Canada performs testing for CF6-50/-80, V2500 and CFM56-7 starters. The location plans to introduce GE90-110/-115B and CF34-8/-10 starter capabilities in the near future.

MTU Maintenance Canada is the North American member of the MTU MRO network of companies and home to its accessory repair center of excellence. At its location in the immediate vicinity of Vancouver’s international airport, the company repairs and overhauls engines and accessories and provides LRU management services. MTU Maintenance Canada’s in-house repair and test capabilities range from fuel components, such as pumps, fuel controls, and actuators to pneumatic components, such as valves and starters, and include electrical capabilities for harnesses and switches.
