The PH-SWP of para centrum Teuge is a Cessna 208B Super cargomaster, a cargo plane, built in 2005 and 4 years later converted into para-plane.
The “SWooP” was converted into a Supervan at the beginning of 2014 with a 900 HP engine, and along with the “JuMP” , it is the fastest paratroopers aircraft in the Netherlands which can carry up to 18 skydivers.
Scroll through 8 pictures from welding a exhaust, which is part of the 900 HP Supervan and made of heat-resistant stainless steel 347.
A difficult to weld stainless steel type where extremely clean work and backing is necessary to avoid weldcracks.
We welded the crack and a extra diamond shape on top of the welded crack so the tension will be divided.
Repair only takes one day to complete.
