CTT Systems’s humidification systems have been selected by Boeing for the flight deck, crew rests and cabin zones A and B for the Boeing 777X aircraft. CTT will be Tier-1 supplier to Boeing and the CTT products will be offered as supplier furnished equipment in the 777X catalog. In total, the Boeing 777X can be equipped with five humidifiers.
“We are honored that Boeing has selected CTT for another wide-body program,” said Torbjörn Johansson, CEO of CTT Systems. “This is a major win for CTT, building on our experiences on the 787. The demand for humidification is proven on the 787 with a flight deck humidifier fleet selection close to 80% and I am convinced that this extended offering will be well received by airlines.”
CTT’s humidifier maintains relative humidity at approximately 20%. The humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method designed to effectively preclude the transfer of bacteria.
“I strongly believe that the 777X award with five optional humidifiers per aircraft has a great chance to rival the 787 Dreamliner average shipset content of approximately two humidifiers per aircraft,” said Johansson.
