Considered to be the most widely used helicopter in the world with more than 16,000 produced over the years, the Bell 205 / UH-1D and H models are still flown today by many military and civil operators around the globe.
This rugged and very capable utility helicopter is often engaged in demanding situations, operating 24/7 into unprepared landing grounds, where the helicopters' engine life can be severely reduced due to erosion.
The fit and forget PUREair system from Pall is the perfect solution for these challenging operations, and enhances helicopter reliability, availability, safety and performance. Fit and Forget Engine Protection Shielding the helicopters' engine from airborne contamination with the PUREair System will result in:
Reduced engine erosion and Increased engine service life
Increased operational availability
Reduced pilot workload
Virtually maintenance free operation of the engine inlet air filtration system

The 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.
