BACKGROUND

Astro Pak's new 38,000 square foot facility opened it's doors for business in July of this year. The opening of the new Titusville location marks the completion of the process that began when Astro Pak acquired Chemko Technical Services in 2016. Chemko had a well established local presence, servicing the Space Coast since 1972. Astro Pak continues that tradition by supporting on-site work at KSC on projects such as the ongoing work at the Mobile Launch Platform (MLP) in support of NASA’s upcoming Space Launch System (SLS), as well as meeting the needs for component cleaning at it’s new state-of-the-art cleanroom facility.

“The new facility offers greatly expanded capabilities enabling more services to be offered to our local and regional customers,” says General Manager Jonathan Hopkins, “We have combined our world class precision cleaning services and our industry-leading field operations teams under the same roof. As a result, we are now able to support our customers both on the Space Coast and throughout the southeast region with an unmatched level of efficiency and value.”


The facility's signature feature is a 15’x15’ tower with a 70’ vertical rise that allows the processing of hoses up to 60’ in length.

The facility also houses an ISO 7 cleanroom and accompanying ISO 6 analysis lab joined by a spacious shop area with a 2 ton bridge crane.

These facilities are further augmented by large aqueous processing tanks, a pre-clean area with multiple work stations, ultrasonic units, as well as hydrostatic, hydraulic, and pneumatic testing capabilities.

Astro Pak made its name with precision cleaning services back in the 1960’s and the addition of the Titusville facility ensures that it will remain at the forefront of the industry. Processing in a controlled environment, cleanliness verification for particle count, TFS, NVR, vacuum sealed packaging, cold shock, and pressure testing are just a few of the cleaning, packaging and testing services available. Additionally, the Astro Pak team is able to meet numerous industry specifications including KSC-C-123J, CGA G-4.1-2009, ASTM G-93-03, IEST-STD-CC 1246E, and numerous industry and aerospace cleaning specifications.
