Aerobraze Engineered Technologies Oklahoma City was awarded a five-year contract with the U.S. Air Force for the remanufacturing of F-16 fighter aircraft regenerative heat exchangers at Tinker Air Force Base.

The Air Force Materiel Command’s (AFMC) Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC), which manages aircraft, engines and missiles, is based at Tinker Air Force Base. OC-ALC comprises five groups that team together to provide class maintenance, repair and overhaul support to the warfighter.

Aerobraze Oklahoma City specializes in the remanufacture and overhaul of F-16 Inconel and aluminum heat exchangers. Assemblies meet stringent U.S. military requirements, including extreme temperatures, to resist cracking and failure over long-time use. These processes have resulted in efficiency and significant cost savings to maintain and extend the life of F-16 operations. 

“As a major manufacturer and overhauler of heat exchangers for the USAF for nearly 40 years, it is with great pride that we continue to provide support to the United States Air Force,” said Brian Martin, director of business development, Aerobraze U.S. “This new award demonstrates our ongoing commitment to increasing efficiency and cost savings for our customers through extending the life of critical components for the aerospace industry.”
