AAR has been chosen by BASF as a preferred MRO service provider for Deoxo cabin ozone/volatile organic compounds (VOC) converters, in compliance with recently abbreviated component maintenance manuals (ACMMs).
BASF has updated its ACMMs for the Deoxo portfolio for the A320 and A330/A340. The updated ACMMs redefine the test procedures and service methods for maintaining the converters. Proper testing includes functional checks of both ozone conversion efficiency and change in air pressure through the converter. These functional checks are currently included in BASF’s MRO services, which have been managed by AAR since April 2019.
“The collaboration of the two industry leaders BASF and AAR will extend the availability of Deoxo ozone and ozone/VOC converters and better service customers around the world,” said Ying Wu, general manager of BASF’s Clean Air business.
“AAR is excited to further extend our partnership with BASF by continuing to support our shared customers and connecting them with critical MRO services that are fully compliant with the latest ACMM revisions,” said Eric Young, senior vice president of OEM solutions at AAR.
BASF Deoxo ozone and ozone/VOC converters are designed to catalytically remove ozone and certain odorous VOCs to deliver quality cabin air compliant with government regulations.
