New pad material under development for cabin humidifiers


Aircraft humidity control systems supplier, CTT Systems, has entered into a joint development agreement with Munters, a company specialising in energy-efficient air treatment and climate systems. The deal will see the companies co-develop a pad material optimised for use in CTT’s cabin humidifier products.

The main objective of this agreement is to combine knowledge and experience with a view to improving the current pad material and optimising it for the use conditions and requirements of CTT’s aircraft humidifiers. CTT’s humidifiers are based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria.

Without a humidification system, cabin air can be below 5% relative humidity (RH) in the flight deck and below 10% in business class. CTT’s humidifiers, available for flight deck, crew rest and business class cabins, are claimed to generate an increase to approximately 20% RH – a level that can help alleviate issues such as fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin, spread of virus diseases, and enhance wellbeing and sleep.
