Gore orders CTT humidification for VIP A340

16th December 2008 - 19:26 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Top US interiors provider Gore Design Completions has ordered CTT Systems’ Cair cabin air humidification system for installation in a VIP Airbus A340 in the fourth quarter of next year.

Based in San Antonio, Texas, Gore specialises in VIP and head-of-state narrowbody and widebody completions.

The Cair system humidifies the extremely dry air (3-5 per cent relative humidity) typical of first and business-class cabins without creating condensation. It is designed to provide a pleasant relative humidity of 25 per cent to reduce the incidence of problems associated with excessively dry air - fatigue, jetlag, red eyes, dry skin, airborne virus infections. The system is based on energy-efficient evaporative cooling technology and includes measures that effectively rule out the transfer of bacteria within the aircraft.

CTT humidification is optional in Boeing 787 crew rest compartments and on the flight deck; in the Airbus A350 cabin, flight deck and crew rest compartments; and in A380 crew rest compartments.

CTT’s complementary Zonal Drying System is designed to counter harmful condensation on the cold inside surface of the aircraft skin. Benefits include reduced fuel consumption and thus emissions through the elimination of significant weights of accumulated water, less corrective maintenance and thus improved operational reliability, and better insulation performance. Corrosion is also reduced, leading to an improvement in aircraft residual value. Zonal Drying has been selected as standard on the Boeing 787 and as an option on the Airbus A350.
