The Pall Aerospace PUREairDry Barrier Filter is cleaned with water only and is ready for re-use within minutes, more than 98% faster to maintain.The Dry Barrier Filter hasbeen specifically designed usingadvanced synthetic dry media technology that virtually eliminates the maintenance associated with conventional oil-wetted barrier filters. It is currently approved as an FAA-PMA direct-fit replacement for the 206L/407 Donaldson IBF. Dry Barrier Filters for the 206L/407 FDC System, as well as for the AS350/355 Donaldson & FDC systems will be available in the winter of 2015.
“This is an important expansion of the PUREair product portfolio that we are working on with Pall Aerospace,it will eventually allow us to cover any requirement for engine protection,” said Mike O’Reilly, President of DART Aerospace. “From Active Vortex Systems like the PA100 for AS350/EC130 to the Dry Barrier Filters being introduced today, we want to be the ‘go-to’ provider of advanced engine protection.”
The development of the Pall Aerospace Dry Barrier Filter technology began as part of a U.S. Army product improvement project in 2006. The Pall Aerospace PUREair Dry Barrier Filter was qualified for the BLACK HAWK helicopter in 2009 and underwent extensive testing to prove its durability, reliability, and performance. It is currently certified globally for use on BLACK HAWK helicopters utilizing the EIBF (Engine Inlet Barrier Filter) system. The PB110D Dry Barrier Filter is based on this proven technology and has been optimized for the challenging space, performance, and certification requirements of commercial helicopters.
