Airborne Contamination Protection for Sikorsky S-61 Helicopters

Pall Aerospace : 24 February, 2010  (Application Story)
Centrisep engine advanced protection systems from Pall Aerospace to be supplied to Carson Helicopters for use in protecting civil and military Sikorsky S-61 helicopter engines from airborne contamination
Pall, a supplier of filtration, separation and purification products, has signed an agreement with Carson Helicopters. Pall will supply its Centrisep engine advanced protection systems (EAPSs) to support a joint modernization program for the Sikorsky S-61 helicopter.


With approximately 620 aircraft in service today, the S-61 model is one of the most widely used commercial and military helicopters. The modernization program provides enhancements to this well-known aircraft that will enable it to perform effectively in severe operating environments and allow for many more years of service. Pallís EAPS technology is a key contributor to these improvements, providing superior engine protection under conditions that include sand, dust, rain, snow and ice.

Centrisep EAPSs protect Helicopter engines from airborne contamination by utilizing centrifugal force to continuously remove particles before they can enter the engine air intake. The EAPS technology extends the life of a Helicopter engine against erosion, while enhancing engine safety, reliability, availability and performance.

Under the terms of the agreement, Carson Helicopter will hold the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) on the Pall EAPS. Carson is a US Federal Aviation Agency (FAA)-approved Helicopter repair station for the overhaul, repair and remanufacture of all major model helicopters. The Company holds over 20 STCs for improvements and modifications to the Sikorsky S-61 and was the first to develop performance enhancements such as composite main rotor blades and a shortened version of the aircraft for commercial and government use.

'As the recognised leader in aerospace filtration, separation, and purification systems and technologies, we are honoured that our technology has been selected for this modernization program. Together with Carson we will deliver unique performance capabilities to an iconic aircraft,' stated Jim Western, president, Pall Aerospace.

Pall Aerospace provides filtration and separation solutions for a broad range of commercial and military fluid applications, including air, fuel, lube, hydraulic and transmission. Its filter products are used on major aircraft platforms and ground service and military equipment worldwide.

Centrisep engine advanced protection systems (EAPSs) have been protecting Helicopter engines since the 1960s. With over fifty different certified designs available, the EAPS positions Pall as the leader in Helicopter engine protection.
