Premier Thermal Attends the AIAM Aerospace Industry Luncheon at Spirit Airlines

The group was able to walk through a brand-new Airbus A320neo that Spirit brought into service this week, tour the maintenance hangar, and listen to airline executives and industry experts discuss the history of the airline, Covid-19 impacts on the return of commercial flights, the rigorous requirements to maintain their fleet, and how they bring new planes into service.

Did you know?
1. Spirit’s fleet is the newest in the USA, averaging 5.5 years old.
2. Spirit employs a couple hundred Michiganders.
3. Many components on the Airbus A320neo were manufactured in Michigan.
4. Premier Thermal has over 25 Prime aerospace approvals.
5. Since neither Sara nor Jessica possess a pilot’s license, this was the closest they could get to flying the plane.

Earth Day was celebrated around the world

 
A chrome plated part may be nice and shiny, but the process is not. Did you know chrome plating can contaminate the environment, which poses a threat to human and animal health? 
 
Our NitroSteel product is not only environmentally friendly, but also provides numerous other advantages compared to chrome, such as superior wear and corrosion resistance, better lubrication retention, and dent resistance. There is no surface pitting or flaking, unlike chrome, because our process is not a coating.

Aluminum Stamping

We offer precision air quench designed specifically for aluminum stamped components. The air quench process is best suited for 6000 series and 7000 series alloy components, as well as aluminum 319 alloy castings.

Why is air quench beneficial? Air quenching can help with distortion control and dimensional stability, improve mechanical properties, including tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation percentage. Air quenching reduces internal residual stresses, increases toughness, and provides more uniform quenching without a vapor layer.

NitroSteel® Bar Products

NitroSteel bar products use a ferritic nitrocarburizing process and are considered a direct replacement for chrome plating. FNC is not a coating; our process diffuses nitrogen into the bar, changing the property of the steel.

NitroSteel provides wear resistance, corrosion protection, improved lubrication retention, no pitting or flaking, and is dent resistant. It is also environmentally friendly!

More importantly, customers using NitroSteel products experience increased service life.
