APU Series Air Pressurization & Filtration Units are frequently utilised in industrial operations where needed for such precise air quality.
Depending on the needs and specifications of the projects, these units can be completely customised.
An APU, also known as an auxiliary power unit, enables an aircraft to operate independently, without the need for ground support tools like a ground power unit, an external air-conditioning unit, or a high pressure air start cart.
An APU is comparable to a windmill generator. The APU’s turbines will rotate when the plane is in the air.
This electricity can subsequently be used to power the aircraft’s electrical systems and equipment as the turbines continue to spin. The APU will continue to generate electricity while an aircraft is in the air.
A device on a vehicle that supplies energy for purposes other than propulsion is known as an auxiliary power unit (APU). Along with certain very large land vehicles, they are frequently found on huge military and commercial aircraft.
To power the aircraft’s electrical equipment, aviation APUs typically provide 115 V AC electricity at 400 Hz (as opposed to 50/60 Hz in the mains supply); however, some can also generate 28 V DC voltage.
Both single-phase and three-phase systems can supply power to APUs.
The Global APU(Auxiliary Power Unit) filter 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 U.S. Army received the 1,000th UH-60 BLACK HAWK Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) equipment from Aerospace Filtration Systems, Inc. (AFS) today.
The Hamilton Sundstrand T-62T-40-1 and the Honeywell Engine System GTCP36-150 [BH], which are the two approved UH-60 APUs, both come with APU IBF kits.
According to the engineering design manager for AFS, the APU IBF is intended to eliminate sand and dust from bleed air and address a severe compressor erosion problem in order to reduce maintenance on aircraft pneumatic systems.
By using AFS barrier filter technology at the APU inlet, they were able to resolve all of these maintenance issues.
Physical restrictions, high velocity airflow, high operating temperatures, and painful APU heat soak back were just a few of the difficult design criteria for the APU that presented themselves.
Additionally, AFS faced a hurdle in creating a standard filter assembly layout for both APUs even though the mounting mechanisms had to be specific to each APU vendor.
