The full Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) process for refurbishment is unknown. The contractor is expected to develop the canister sleeve refurbishment process for submission as a technical data package to the Government. Type of work may include: machining, grinding, riveting, metal work, painting, welding, sandblasting, mechanical testing, and electrical testing. The work is anticipated to be a recurring effort for 3 – 6 years with an annual count of 45 – 75 units. Canister assembly drawings are available. References ATTACHMENT 1.

Canister Sleeve Assembly Description The canister sleeve forms part of the canister assembly (refer to Attachment 1). The canister assembly is a hermetically sealed unit measuring 90.7 inches in length and 9.25 inches in diameter. The canister main assemblies are: the canister sleeve assembly, lower end assembly, umbilical assembly, and the top assembly (refer to Attachment 1). The work described in this RFI/SS involves the canister sleeve assembly only. The canister sleeve assembly uses a cold drawn aluminum tube as the inner pressure bore. Bonded to this tube is a series of support rings that are uniformly spaced along the length of the tube. A number of the support rings provide for mounting of the canister attachments, including the connector extractor mechanism and handles. A cast aluminum end ring is fitted to each end of the tube assembly, the upper end ring accepts the top assembly and the lower end ring interfaces with the lower end assembly. A formed aluminum skin is attached to the support rings and end skirts to form the canister outer skin (refer to Attachments 2 and 3). Description of Work Canister assemblies returned from service may be found to have incurred some damage to the canister sleeve assembly components (Outer skin, support rings, handles, connection points to other assemblies, see attachment C for more details). Damage may have been caused by rough handling, water ingress, or corrosion. The following are examples of repairs: Minor/major corrosion damage Repair paint and plating damage, locally or by replacing item. Removal of minor corrosion to outer skin or support rings and apply paint scheme. Removal and replacement with a new outer skin due to major corrosion. Removal and replacement of umbilical assembly connector cover silicone rubber gasket. Removal and replacement of wire assemblies, Velcro straps, and other canister sleeve attachments. Outer skin removal has been performed at NSWC-CR using the following process: Outer 6061-T6 canister skin is attached via approximately 250-300 rivets and sealed with adhesive. Rivet heads are ground off and punched out with a 1/8” punch. Pry bars are then used to separate skin from adhesive. Residual adhesive is then removed via angle grinder with rust removal wheel.
