A Rotorcraft Grounding Application for a prime defence contractor.
The client required equipment to protect from the risk of explosion due to static charge within a potential vapour zone.
Castlet took an existing design with obsolescence issues and updated it for current safe working conditions on time and within budget.
The customer contracted Castlet to produce an initial pre production run. This was successful, and it led to Castlet being contracted to manufacture some 100 units for service requirements.
The customer now has a safe and reliable means of preventing static build up.
This equipment was designed in such a way that the application met the exact requirements of the customer but was transferable to other products and applications.
