Fit and Forget Engine Protection
The AW119 helicopter is used in a variety of roles including executive transport, police, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and military applications. These demanding operations can mean anxious minutes spent hovering close to the ground, as well as frequent landings on unprepared surfaces. These helicopters must be ready 24/7 for rapid deployment to any location. Their missions cannot be delayed or restricted by operational challenges like a blocked filter; they require a reliable, maintenance-free engine protection system.
|The “fit and forget” PUREair system is an ideal solution for such challenging operations. It shields the engine inlet from airborne contamination which results in:
On the AW119, the unit consists of three flat panels integrated on the engine cowl which replace the standard screen intake.
- Safer operation (Protection against FOD, ice, snow and sand)
- Increased operational availability
- Protection against engine erosion

Certified for operation in the event of inadvertent entry into icing conditions, the AW119 PUREair system does not need a by-pass door or differential pressure monitoring systems.
There are no inlet barrier filters to replace or clean; the PUREair is a “fit and forget
” system. As with all aircraft equipment, routine visual inspection is recommended.
In case of damage, please refer to the Component Maintenance Manual 71-61-00 available through Pall Aerospace.

||The Pall PUREair solution is also an environmentally friendly alternative to oil-wetted barrier filters. There is no filter replacement and no daily cleaning as with oil-based solutions, which are difficult and expensive to dispose of.
