Special Report: Advances in Filtration Technology for Military Aircraft Applications
Many of our readers will be familiar with the rigours which military fixed wing and rotorcraft must frequently endure whilst operating in the extremes of environmental conditions. During these operations, the filtration technology designed and built by engineers provides the only line of defence between vital engine systems and the gases, dust and compounds that can contaminate the aircraft. Without the right barriers in place, this can lead to catastrophic results.
This Special Report investigates how bespoke Inlet Barrier Filters are being implemented to meet all the demands of 21st century defence and aerospace contractors, focusing first on the offerings of Donaldson Aerospace & Defense.
