Camfil and CTT Systems partner improve air quality onboard

Camfil has announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CTT SYSTEMS AB (CTT).

The partnership will see Camfil’s air filtration technology for aircraft and the aviation industry incorporated in CTT’s humidifier products.

The cooperation aims to explore innovative air filter applications that improve air quality in the aircraft cabin, where Camfil’s air filtration solutions can be applied in cooperation with CTT’s knowledge and footprint in the aviation industry.

Primarily, CTT opts to incorporate air filtration in its humidifier products, to further improve air quality for pilots, crew, and passengers. CTT will then be able to complement existing clean air solutions without adding additional maintenance or overhaul for airlines.

The initial objective is to reduce Ozone and/or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). By integrating filter technology in the pad module that is aligned with the service interval of the pad material, airlines can rip-and-replace the entire pad module.

“We look forward to working with CTT to develop filters that can add additional value to its customers and further improve air quality in aircraft…with very specific, high performance filtration and low pressure drop,” said Mark Simmons, CEO at Camfil.

Torbjörn Johansson, CEO at CTT Systems, said: “The premium-air-pad will be developed for our humidifiers in flight deck, crew rest and passenger cabin on Boeing 777X and Airbus A350, as well as for crew rests on the 787, improving air quality without adding extra service or maintenance.”
