Technology partners to add ozone and VOC filtration to humidifiers


Aircraft humidity control systems specialist, CTT Systems, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Camfil, a manufacturer of clean air solutions. The resulting partnership will adapt Camfil’s air filtration technology for aircraft and the aviation industry, primarily to be incorporated in CTT’s cabin humidifier products.

According to CTT, the technology will complement existing clean air solutions without creating additional maintenance or overhaul requirements for airlines. The initial objective is to reduce ozone and/or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). By integrating filter technology in the pad module that is aligned with the service interval of the pad material, airlines can remove and replace the entire pad module.

CTT has already installed several humidifiers in aircraft flight decks and crew rests, primarily on Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 aircraft. The pad-filters will be completely interchangeable with the current product line of humidifiers and pads.

“The premium-air-pad will be developed for our humidifiers in flight decks, crew rests and passenger cabins on the Boeing 777X and Airbus A350, as well as for crew rests on the B787, improving air quality without adding extra service or maintenance,” stated Torbjörn Johansson CEO at CTT Systems. “Airlines can initially select ozone and VOC reduction.”
