Camfil and CTT Systems Partner to Incorporate Ozone and VOC Filtration in Humidifiers for Flight Deck, Crew Rest and Cabin

Camfil announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with CTT SYSTEMS to enter a partnership that opts to adapt Camfil’s air filtration technology for aircraft and the aviation industry, primarily to be incorporated in CTT’s humidifier products.

The cooperation aims to explore air filter applications that improve air quality in the aircraft cabin, where Camfil air filtration solutions can be applied in together with CTT’s knowledge and footprint in the aviation industry, the two say. Primarily, CTT opts to incorporate air filtration in its humidifier products, to further improve air quality for pilots, crew, and passengers. Hereby, CTT can complement existing clean air solutions without adding additional maintenance or overhaul 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 rip-and-replace the entire pad module. CTT has a large installed population of humidifiers in the flight deck 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/pads.

“We look forward to work with CTT to develop filters that can add additional value to CTT’s customers and further improve air quality in aircraft. We will work very closely with CTT to develop tailor-made filters certified for use in aircraft with very specific, high performance filtration and low pressure drop,” says Mark Simmons CEO at Camfil.

“The premium-air-pad will be developed for our humidifiers in flight deck, crew rest and passenger cabin on Boeing 777X and Airbus A350, as well as for crew rests on the 787, improving air quality without adding extra service or maintenance. Airlines can initially select Ozone and VOC reduction,” comments Torbjörn Johansson CEO at CTT Systems.
