Air Innovations, the leader in custom environmental control solutions, announced the availability of a new case study that describes how the company designed and built three aerospace environmental control units (ECUs) for a customer in a semi-tropical, salt-air environment. The three ECUs were needed to support the client’s various spacecraft needs and would be located in a facility in close proximity to the ocean, making salt corrosion a concern.
For this client, Air Innovations created three painted-aluminum ECUs that capitalized on once-through air delivered at 36” wc static pressure. ECUs 1 and 2 had identical 1,000-4,000 cfm of capacity while the third unit had 500-1,800 cfm of capacity. The units controlled temperature to 70-95°F ±5° and humidity to 30-50% RH. The ECUs featured salt-environment protective coatings to prevent corrosion from the salt environment.
