Created by the Performance Review Institute, the Nadcap programme is designed to provide an accreditation and quality assurance framework for a defined range of ‘special processes and products’ that are used within the Aerospace and Defence sectors. It was originally sponsored by Boeing and is now adopted by all Western aerospace manufacturers.
Nadcap is becoming increasingly important in the aerospace sector with accreditation frequently being requested by companies such as: GE Aviation, Rolls Royce plc, MTU, Snecma, Turbomeca, Boeing, Vought Aircraft Industries, Bombardier, Honeywell, Hamilton Sundstrand and Sikorsky Aircraft. Manufacturers and end users must follow the requirements of the SAE Aerospace Standard Number AMS2750E. In this Standard ovens and furnaces are classified by their temperature uniformity and the type of control instrumentation that they use.
Carbolite Gero has significant expertise in supplying aerospace customers with ovens and furnaces designed for full Nadcap compliance.
For product to conform with AMS2750E the following have to be defined:
|Instrumentation components||Type A||Type B||Type C||Type D||Type E|
|(1)||Control instrument with temperature display||X||X||X||X||X|
|(3)||Control instrument recorder||X||X||X||X|
|(4)||Over-temperature protection instrument||X||X||X||X|
|(5)||Over-temperature protection sensor||X||X||X||X|
|(6)||Multipoint chart recorder (or separate channel in control instrument recorder)||X||X||X|
|(7)||High temperature protection sensor connected to multipoint recorder||X||X|
|(8)||Low temperature sensor connected to multipoint recorder||X||X|
|(9)||Load sensor connected to multipoint recorder||X||X|
