Humidity control specialist CTT Systems has received its first order for the Zonal Drying Anti-Condensation System to be installed on the A321Neo type. The system will be retrofitted on two of Novair’s newly delivered A321Neos.
“Novair has proven the benefits from mastering the root cause of condensation when operating its previous A321Ceo aircraft equipped with the Zonal Drying System,” said Peter Landquist, vice president of sales and marketing at CTT. “The systems will be retrofitted in the aircraft to prevent weight gain from accumulated water/ice accretion (which increases fuel and CO₂ burn) and to reduce other moisture problems, such as electrical failures.”
CTT says the system saves 200-300kg of accumulated water weight in Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A320 types.
