CTT Systems is teaming up with Munters to develop a next-generation pad material for aircraft humidification. The two companies are combining their expertise to optimise the current material specifically for CTT’s aircraft humidifiers.
“CTT has a long-standing relation with Munters and we are pleased to strengthen our partnership with this joint development project that opts to improve the performance and reliability of the current pad material,” said Torbjörn Johansson, CEO at CTT Systems.
Without an efficient humidification system, CTT notes aircraft cabin air can have a relative humidity below 5% on the flight deck and below 10% in business class. The company’s humidifiers are designed to increase this to approximately 20%.
The aim is to reduce problems related to dry air on long-haul flights – which the company says can include fatigue, jet lag, red eyes, dry skin and spread of viral diseases.
The CTT humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method designed to effectively preclude the transfer of bacteria.
