Airline orders 30 Zonal Drying systems for Boeing 737-800 fleet


January 5, 2016 – CTT Systems AB, an aircraft humidity control systems specialist, has announced that an undisclosed airline has ordered Zonal Drying systems for its fleet of 30 Boeing 737-800s, to be factory installed by Boeing, with deliveries due between September 2016 and April 2018.

The Zonal Drying anti-condensation system is claimed to offer several advantages to operators, including weight reductions of 200-300kg of accumulated water in B737/A320 aircraft; fewer moisture-related faults in electrical equipment, and a lower rate of insulation blanket replacement.

Peter Landquist, VP of sales and marketing at CTT Systems AB, commented, ‘We are privileged to receive another order from an airline valuing the benefits of mastering the root-cause of fuselage condensation from the very first operation. Hereby, the new aircraft will not gain weight from accumulated water/ice accretion (which increasing fuel and CO2 burn) and it will not experience moisture problems, such as electrical failures, which increase cost.’
