Honeywell Aerospace expands 737 MAX product offering
Nov 15, 2012 (Menafn - AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) --US aerospace supplier Honeywell HON said it has been selected to provide several aircraft subsystems for the new US airframer Boeing's BA 737 MAX line of airplanes.
Honeywell said that the 737 MAX will come equipped with the latest Honeywell Electronic Bleed Air System, in addition to other existing Honeywell 737 systems that will lower the cost of ownership for operators, while increasing reliability, efficiency and comfort.
The Honeywell EBAS is designed to take airflow from the airplane engines to provide cabin pressurization and environmental cabin controls, and bring warm air to the wings to mitigate potential icing.
According to Honeywell, the system includes an updated Pack Flow and Temperature Controller which enables increased cabin climate efficiency allowing for reduced fuel consumption.
The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the venerable Boeing 737 single-aisle aircraft.
Honeywell said that, for operators, the new EBAS will enable significant cost savings in maintenance and reduced fuel burn over the lifetime of the airplane. It boasts higher reliability than its predecessors, thereby building on the 737's legacy of industry-leading airplane reliability.
