Porvair Filtration Group has announced that its production facility in Ashland, Virginia, USA, is now manufacturing a range of Last Chance filters for the aerospace industry. Porvair states it has invested into the Ashland manufacturing facility and increased its capabilities to meet stringent aerospace standards.
Effective filtration within aircraft and military equipment is vital to ensure that all systems are free from contaminants and to guarantee safety, long service life, reliability and cost effective operation in the most demanding situations. Aircraft fluid systems require Last Chance filters and screens to provide critical point-of-use protection for contamination sensitive components, performing a complimentary role to main system filters.
The Last Chance filters are designed to remove and retain contamination such as machining chips, burrs, wear debris and fluid breakdown products induced during operation or built in downstream of the main system filters. To provide maximum protection, these filters are tailored specifically to the system’s operating and environmental conditions. These filters are designed to interface with customer units and are supplied as discs, unions or bolts and can also be integrated into other components such as valves.
Porvair Filtration Group is certified to AS9100 Rev C and ISO9001 EASA Part 21 Subpart G Enabling Issue of EASA Form 1 aerospace quality standards. With operations in both Europe and North America the group boasts a fully equipped test house and laboratory facilities.
Porvair manufactures an extensive range of filters and assemblies for use in aircraft fluid/air management and control systems, including fuel filter assemblies/cartridges, fuel tank inerting filters, coolant filter modules, hydraulic filter cartridges and laser drilled screens.
