Cabin Air Filtration

Our cabin airline filtration solution provide superior cabin air quality and maintain high operational efficiency.

The recirculated air on-board aircraft, which accounts for approximately 50% of the air supply, can contain high concentrations of dust, skin flakes, viruses, and other microorganisms whilst common occurrences like coughing and sneezing, combined with ultra-low humidity can promote the spread of bacteria and viruses.


The remaining 50% of the cabin air is provided by the engine bleed air. This air can contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that create unpleasant odors and, in some cases, become harmful. Odors, although not harmful, can also be created in the cabin and contribute to an unpleasant overall cabin environment.

 

To avoid maintenance burdens and reduce costly delays or cancellations associated with these types of contamination events, Pall Aerospace created the PUREcabin solution. A technology suite that ensures filtration of all air – bleed and recirculated – and offers real-time system contamination analytics for improved operational efficiency, enabling aircraft operators around the globe to offer the highest standard of cabin air quality.

High-Efficiency Particulate Air or HEPA filters are high-quality, high-intensity, medical-grade filters that replace the air we breathe onboard aircraft every 2-3 minutes. For reference, the air in hospitals is fully renewed every 10minutes and on average the air in office buildings is renewed every 20 minutes.

 

✈ Almost every passenger aircraft flying in the world today is fitted with a HEPA filter.

ACAF (Advanced Cabin Air Filter) is the most up-to-date cabin air filtration technology.
