CTT and Munters partners to jointly develop next-gen, high-performance pad material for use in aircraft humidifiers

CTT SYSTEMS AB (“CTT”), the market leader of aircraft humidity control systems, today announces a joint development agreement with Munters, a global leader in energy efficient air treatment and climate solutions, to develop a pad material optimized for use in CTT’s humidifier products.  

The main objective of this agreement is to utilize each other’s unique knowledge and experience by jointly improving the current pad material to enable an updated version that is tailor-designed for conditions and requirements in CTT’s aircraft humidifiers.

“We look forward to this cooperation with CTT to develop a pad material that is optimized for use in CTT´s aircraft humidifiers,” says Peter Gisel-Ekdahl, President Business Area AirTech.

“CTT has a long-standing relation with Munters and we are pleased to strengthen our partnership with this joint development project that opts to improve performance and reliability of the current pad material,” comments Torbjörn Johansson CEO at CTT Systems.
 

About humidification in aircraft
Without an efficient humidification system, the cabin air is far more dehydrating than any place on Earth - below 5 % RH in flight deck and below 10 % in business class. CTT’s humidifiers, available for flight deck, crew rest and Business class, generate a striking humidity increase to approx. 20 percent Relative Humidity (RH), restored to comfort and wellbeing level. Passengers and crew on long-haul flights hereby benefit from reduced dry air related problems, such as fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin, spread of virus diseases; and enjoy better wellbeing and sleep. The CTT humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria.
