Fit and Forget Engine ProtectionThe MIL Mi-24/25/35 helicopter is a military attack helicopter which can also be used for military troop transport. It is currently flown by defense forces around the world in a range of environments, including African desert operations.
The “fit and forget” PUREair system is an ideal solution for such challenging conditions. It shields the engine inlet from airborne contamination, resulting in:
- QB0821 (port/left hand)
- QB0822 (starboard/right hand)
MaintenanceThe PUREair is a “fit and forget” system; there are no inlet barrier filters to replace or clean. As with all aircraft equipment, routine visual inspection is recommended. In case of damage, please refer to the Component Maintenance Manual, available through Pall Aerospace.
For additional information about this product, please contact your local Pall representative.
|The Pall PUREair solution is 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.|
Fitting Pall’s PUREair system on these helicopters proved to be invaluable - the engine erosion life was extended by five times compared to the original OEM separator; FOD protection was also greatly enhanced, as well as the ability to operate in icing/snow conditions. All of these substantial benefits led a major North African operator to request that Pall Aerospace develop a specific design for their fleet of MIL Mi-24/25/35 helicopters.
