UTC Aerospace Systems has unveiled a microbiological water purifier that uses multiple layers designed to trap pathogens, remove odors and neutralize microbes. It is designed for use in galleys, lavatories, potable water tank outlets and service panel fills.
The company says the unit requires minimal water pressure, no electrical power or wiring, can purify 4,000 gallons over its life, and meets National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) P231 purifier reduction requirements for bacteria, virus and cysts.
UTC Aerospace Systems is targeting qualification in early 2018. The unit weighs just over 4 lb and can be scaled in line with customer requirements.
Another new development from the company is the Kidde Halotron BrX handheld cabin fire extinguisher, which uses a non-Halon fire-suppression agent and is intended as a drop-in replacement for Kidde 1211 extinguishers, in line with ICAO and EASA recommendations/regulations. UTC Aerospace Systems says the product has passed UL 711 5B, 2B cold temperature and FAA minimum performance standard tests.
