Dry barrier engine filter element for US army helicopters

Pall Aerospace : 19 March, 2015  (Application Story)
A total of 200 PUREair dry barrier filter elements have been supplied to the US army for use in UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter engines
Dry barrier engine filter element for US army helicopters

Pall Corporation has delivered its 200th PUREair Dry Barrier filter element to the US army.  Pall Aerospace has been delivering product since July 2014 to support the US army’s effort to re-source the UH-60 Black Hawk Engine Inlet Barrier Filters (EIBF).  This indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ), competitive contract awarded to Pall Aerospace represents a major shift to dry barrier technology for the US army’s UH-60 Black Hawk EIBF filtration solution.  

The PUREair Dry Barrier filters have been specifically designed using advanced synthetic dry media technology that virtually eliminates the maintenance associated with conventional oil-wetted EIBFs.  The Pall Aerospace PUREair barrier filter is cleaned with water only, and
is ready for re-use in minutes.

“The ability to clean the filter quickly without detergents or oiling improves fleet readiness and greatly reduces maintenance burden for the soldier,” said Thomas Lambert, Director of Sales, Military and Rotary Wing at Pall Aerospace.  "The response to our PUREair Dry Barrier filters has been tremendous and our team is honoured that the military has adopted this technology as well.  The feedback received from helicopter operators sends a clear signal that Pall’s PUREair dry media technology is the preferred solution for inlet barrier filters going forward.”  

Pall Aerospace recently introduced additional products to the portfolio of PUREair Dry Barrier Filters at HAI’s Heli-Expo in Orlando.  The commercial PUREair products are available from DART Aerospace and Pall Aerospace.
