PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., June 15, 2015 – Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) today announced that the next generation engine protection system for Airbus Helicopters’ H125, AS350, and EC130 families of helicopters has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The STC allows operators to install the equipment on their helicopters.
The PA100 PUREair System, co-developed by Pall Aerospace and DART Aerospace, is a totally redesigned, re-engineered, and retested engine air protection system that takes the capabilities of its EAPS predecessors to the next level. Featuring Pall’s latest PUREair vortex tube technology, the new system is self-cleaning and virtually maintenance-free, unlike other filtration systems qualified for this aircraft. The PA100 PUREair system will provide the highest level of helicopter engine protection while offering a 2% gain in engine power over conventional inlet barrier filters.
This next generation system utilizes the latest advances in Pall Aerospace technology, including 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) optimized system design and innovative nano-material technologies. The PUREair vortex tube works in all weather conditions, including snow, heavy rain, and salt spray.
EASA STC approval is expected shortly and flight testing for falling and blowing snow is currently being pursued in several locations.
