Aircraft humidity control systems company CTT Systems AB (CTT) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus Corporate Jets to optimise a humidification system for the ACJ320 Family to further improve efficiency and performance.
The agreement was signed at EBACE in Geneva today.
Cabin humidity is typically low in VIP passenger aircraft cabins, but CTT says with a CTT humidication system it can be increased to better than 20 per cent by continuously introducing moisture to improve passenger comfort and well-being.
Moisture build-up in insulation blankets will be avoided by combining a dryer with the humidifier to achieve balanced humidity.
“Airbus corporate jets lead in the comfort and space that they deliver to passengers, and introducing the option of better cabin humidification is part of our focus on continually improving the travel experience,” said Airbus Corporate Jets president, Benoit Defforge.
“Our shared goal is to create evenly distributed humidification throughout the VIP cabins of Airbus corporate jets, while minimizing the potable water needed, bringing the benefit of our airliner experience to the world of private jets in an optimized and economic way,” said Peter Landquist, vice president sales & marketing of CTT Systems.
The CTT VIP Inflight Humidification (IFH) system achieves a comfortable level of better than 20 per cent relative humidity throughout the entire aircraft cabin. Without such a system the relative humidity is far below the recommended level for human comfort and well-being.
Due to the system, CTT says VIP passengers will, on long-haul flights, benefit from the increase in humidity with reduction of dry air related problems but also from improved well-being and sleep.
The CTT IFH system utilizes evaporative cooling technology that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria and improves air quality by reducing particles in the cabin air. The system also offers total anti-condensation protection.
