Air conditioning systems create a safe and comfortable environment for passengers and crews in the aircraft cabin.
The air conditioning system processes high pressure, high temperature air which is most of the time taken or “bled” from the aircraft engines.
The core of the system consists of air conditioning packs based on so-called air cycle machines with air bearings providing higher reliability. These air cycle machines can be pneumatically, electrically or mechanically driven.
Various components like heat exchangers, re-heaters, condensers, water extractor, flow control valves, sensors or controllers are also part of the system.
