Chant Designs, Manufactures and Installs Complete Turnkey Test Stands

Serving the Military, Aerospace, and Industrial Industries

A typical Test Stand project starts with a component to be tested as well as the required testing standard or procedure.

Chant Engineering’s in-house team of engineers will take this information and provide a no cost, detailed proposal for you. We know how critical testing and quality of your components are to your business. It is our mission to provide you with the best Test Stands at the most competitive prices possible.

For extremely large projects, Chant Engineering offers a reduced cost preliminary engineering review and estimate that allows you the customer, to get a detailed project plan with cost estimates and realistic schedules. This approach can identify Test Stand configurations upfront, reduce project time and often reduce overall project costs. Many worldwide leading manufacturing companies, automotive companies, aerospace companies and Military repair depots rely on Chant Engineering Test Stands for everyday production.

If you can imagine it, we can build it. Chant Engineering specializes in custom applications.

Model 854301: F-15 Speed Calibration Test Stand

The Chant Engineering Model 854301 Speed Calibration Test Stand is designed and manufactured by Chant Engineering’s to verify the F-15 secondary power system governors and switches that are being dynamically calibrated.

In use, the operator mounts the switch to the mounting flange, selects the proper operating speed for the preset selector panel and starts the test.The switch is accelerated at a certain speed for a pre-programmed amount of time then decelerated at a specific rate and time. This procedure is cycled for the predetermined time frame per the Governments technical order.

During this test the switch is supposed to actuate within certain speed ranges. Pass-fail is displayed on the digital readout for each test. This test stand will test the F-15 two-speed switch assembly for the jet fuel starter, the Governor switch for the central gearbox and the Governor switch for the F-100 AMAD gearbox.

Model 836801: Fatigue Cycle and Static Shaft

The Chant Engineering Model 836801 Test Stand is used to dynamically and static test power take-off shafts for Aerospace and Military customers. One test dynamically fatigues the shaft and one test is for the static torque. The fatigue test stand rotates the two shafts simultaneously at 25,000 rpm for approximately 24 hours per test.

The high-speed rotating portion of the test stand is located in a protected test cell while the operators’ control station is located outside, for operator safety. After testing, the shaft is examined for cracking or damage.

The static test stand is used to tortionally test the shaft. In use, the operator mounts the shaft to the test stand sets the amount of torque and the pneumatic actuator rotates one end of the shaft while the other end is fixed. The torque is measured via an electronic torque cell and displayed on the digital readout.

Model 8420: Fuel Flow Test Stand

The Chant Engineering Model 8420 Fuel Flow Test Stand is used to dynamically test and certify aircraft in-flight refueling equipment.

The test stand consists of a 2000 gallon jet fuel tank along with the necessary valves, pumps, manifolds and operators controls. Note the full capacity drip pan around the entire structure, in the event of a tank or unit under test (UUT) failure the entire quantity of jet fuel is contained. In use the UUT’s are connected to the various flanges for testing. The operator is in an enclosed building separated from the Test Stand for safety. The operator’s controls are remote, in the operator facility. There is complete data acquisition; each test is stored in the computer and can be reviewed at any time or a certificate can be printed.
