Aviation – Dehumidification & Moisture Removal

Humidity and corrosion control within the aviation industry is crucial in order to protect the whole as well as the parts.

The applications in this industry are extremely diverse and include both dew point control as well as relative humidity. For example, a relative humidity (RH) of 40% is desired in order to eliminate corrosion, spoilage and breakdowns during production, storage and during operation of the aircrafts. For other applications, it might be necessary to ensure condensation doesn’t form by controlling the dew point to prevent corrosion.

Some of the problems that we have come across in this industry include:

  • Avionics and the prevention of condensation
  • Transportation of parts in self-contained controlled environments
  • Long term protection of museum pieces or in aircraft hangers
  • The production of canopies for fighter jets

   

In 2015, we were approached by a large aircraft manufacturer who was facing issues with their existing process of coating parts to protect them during transportation. Not only was this method proving to be expensive in terms of the labour and time required to coat and then remove the coating but it also created environmental issues. Changes in legislation meant this process could no longer continue.

We developed a new transportation system, which allows controlled and conditioned environments on a moving vehicle measuring over 30m long. Both temperature and humidity are controlled to specific set points, while overcoming the required power supply on a moving vehicle.

The system combines the latest controls function developed in house. This includes data logging, Ethernet connections, wireless connection and even the use of an App to track the conditions throughout the transportation cycle, enabling complete tractability for the life of the components.

With dew point / RH control and non-contact temperature probes, condensation prevention is guaranteed.

In fact, our transport vehicle can even assess the surrounding rooms, to ensure its safe to remove the parts, at its final destination. It’s amazing to think that dehum dry air systems play such a central role in keeping the largest and fastest aircrafts in the world flying high.

Whether you have specific requirements for your application or simply face an issue in your process we can support you.
