We design and engineer our PCA systems based on the most challenging industry standards including the ASHRAE and AHM.
We optimise the entire system design including power requirement and air distribution flow and temperature from the PCA outlet up to the aircraft PCA inlets. Our engineering guarantees that we meet each single aircraft cooling requirement. Cavotec unrivalled PCA in-ground pits systems boost the overall system performance and ensure a better passenger comfort on-board the aircraft.
