Our manufacturing facility maintains over 14,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space with the ability to expand an additional 10,000+ square feet. All manufacturing and assembly is performed in-house using proven HVAC practices and the latest technologies including CNC tube bending. MilAIR's award-winning tube bender project has improved the quality and reliability of our environmental control units (ECUs). The number one reliability issue with a refrigeration system is gas leaks. With the use of this technology, we have eliminated several brazed joints in our refrigeration tubing circuit and thereby improved our manufacturing process.
To further control the quality of our products, all painting is performed on-site by qualified technicians in accordance with finish processes that meet or exceed the requirements of MIL-F-14072 and MIL-F-53072. Paint coupons are regularly tested by independent registered laboratories to ensure that our coating system meet specification requirements.
All welding completed at MilAIR is performed to documented procedures by certified American Welding Society (AWS) welders. All MilAIR welders are certified for D1.1 Steel and D1.2 Aluminum. All quality inspections and testing is overseen by our in-house Certified Weld Inspector (CWI). All welding equipment is calibrated using document weld procedures for each type of weld and material used. It is our policy to perform all welding in the Flat Position. In this position, the welding is performed from the upper side of the joint, and the face of the weld is approximately horizontal. This extra attention maximizes weld quality and strength.
