Air must be ingested and compressed by an aircraft low pressure compressor before being supplied into the combustion chamber. Both a low-pressure and a high-pressure compressor are present in modern engines. The low-pressure compressor, also referred to as a booster, is in charge of pre-compressing the air.
The global aircraft low pressure compressor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The CFM56 – 5A/5B/5C/7B and LEAP 1A/1B/1C engines are outfitted by Safran Aero Boosters with custom low-pressure compressors.With a market share in the medium- and long-haul markets for low-pressure compressors for commercial turbofan engines, Safran Aero Boosters has been involved in most significant aeronautical programmes in recent years.
Safran Aero Boosters shares the obligations and liabilities of future engine programmes with other engine manufacturers through contractual relationships with Safran Aircraft Engines, General Electric, and Pratt & Whitney. On an integrated location that unites both engineering and manufacturing teams, low-pressure compressors are made.
Working with clients and renowned universities and research institutions across the world, Safran Aero Boosters engages in upstream research to create revolutionary engine architectures.
The business also has an ongoing investment programme to upgrade its tools and modify its workshops to fit its technological partnership approach.From design through delivery of finished modules that are ready to be put into the finished engine, Safran Aero Boosters offers a wide variety of competence. These services include supply chain management, finance, specification, design, development, instrumentation, testing, and qualification.
Eagle Services Asia Pte Ltd (“ESA”) of Pratt & Whitney has been designated by The Engine Alliance (EA) as a centre of excellence for overhauls of the GP7200 low pressure compressor (LPC). With the initial shop visits planned for LPC performance restoration, ESA will support Airbus A380 operators all over the world.
ESA will serve as a centre of expertise for the disassembly, assembly, and balancing of the LPC, which includes maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) for the fan hub, drum, blades, and stator assembly, a five-stage low-pressure compressor. The two designs that served as the basis for the GP7200 engine, the GE90 and PW4000, have previously undergone extensive maintenance by ESA.
Commercial aircraft of the next generation are powered by the Pratt & Whitney GTF engine family. The new engines promise double-digit reductions in operational expenses, noise and pollutant emissions, and fuel consumption. They have a Fan Drive Gear System that separates the fan’s drive from both the low-pressure compressor and the low-pressure turbine.
As a result, the low-pressure compressor and turbine can spin considerably more quickly than the fan. The engine is far quieter, cleaner, and uses less fuel. The geared turbofan reduces fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by about 16 percent apiece when compared to its previous engines, and also reduces noise emissions from GTF-powered aircraft by 75 percent.
