Parker focuses on energy, safety, emissions at Paris Air Show

PARIS, 17 June 2013. Parker Hannifin’s engineering and technologies are making a positive impact on the world in the areas of energy creation and conservation, aircraft safety, and a cleaner environment. 

Saving and creating energy. To provide power on demand and efficient overall energy usage on aircraft, Parker Aerospace incorporates integral, bidirectional motor-driven pumps into its flight controls. 

Aircraft safety. Parker Aerospace’s fuel tank inerting systems increase the safety in aircraft fuel tanks by displacing flammable oxygen with inert nitrogen. The company’s highly resistive unions improve the safety of composite aircraft by isolating the conducted energy from a lightning strike and preventing it from entering the fuel tank.

Cleaner environment. On aircraft, Parker Aerospace’s multifunction fuel cell system provides electrical power with greater efficiency, reducing emissions and fuel consumption. 

For aircraft engines, the company’s fuel atomization and metering technology reduces CO2 emissions by up to 15 percent and CO2 gas emissions up to 56 percent—well below today’s regulatory requirements.

Modular, adaptable flight control systems integrate cockpit controls, electronics, and actuation to reduce overall aircraft weight, resulting in reduced emissions. 

Parker’s liquid cooling technology of power electronics provides up to five times more cooling capacity, with the same weight and footprint of conventional, legacy solutions.

Parker’s advanced materials for transport vehicle fuel injectors enable high towing power and efficiency while lowering fuel consumption and meeting emission targets.

Parker is at the Paris Air Show in hall 5, stand C220.
