Company Says A New Electronic Bleed Air System (EBAS) Improves Efficiency, Reliability
Honeywell has been selected to provide several vital aircraft subsystems for the new 737 MAX. The airplane will come equipped with the latest Honeywell Electronic Bleed Air System (EBAS), in addition to other existing Honeywell 737 systems that the company says will lower the cost of ownership for operators, while increasing reliability, efficiency and comfort.
The Honeywell EBAS is designed to take airflow from the airplane engines to provide cabin pressurization and environmental cabin controls, and bring warm air to the wings to mitigate potential icing. The Honeywell EBAS includes an updated Pack Flow and Temperature Controller (PFTC) which enables increased cabin climate efficiency allowing for reduced fuel consumption.
"As a provider of 737 MAX products and services (expected to exceed current NG ship volumes), we play an instrumental role in maximizing the reliability of Boeing aircraft to improve on-time performance so that ultimately passengers can get where they are going in the most efficient manner possible," said John Bolton, President, Air Transport and Regional, Honeywell Aerospace.
The new EBAS allows operators to monitor airplane diagnostics electronically, making troubleshooting easier and maintenance less time-intensive. It also gives them more information at their fingertips. Operators can easily isolate system issues and quickly implement a solution. For operators, the new EBAS will enable significant cost savings in maintenance and reduced fuel burn over the lifetime of the airplane. It boasts higher reliability than its predecessors, thereby building on the 737's legacy of industry-leading airplane reliability.
First delivery of the 737 MAX is planned for 2017.
