Boeing selects CTT for 777X humidification systems

Posted 27 January 2017 · Add Comment

CTT Systems has been selected by Boeing to provide the humidification systems for flight deck, crew rests and cabin zone A/B for the Boeing 777X aircraft. CTT will be tier-1 supplier to Boeing and the CTT products will be offered as supplier furnished equipment in the 777X catalogue.

Selecting CTT enables Boeing to bring proven humidification capabilities and performance from the 787 to the 777X and migrate to premium passenger cabins (zone A and B). In total, the Boeing 777X aircraft can be equipped with five of our humidifiers.

"We are honoured that Boeing has selected CTT for another widebody programme. This is a major win for CTT, building on our experiences on the 787," said Torbjörn Johansson, CEO of CTT Systems. “The demand for humidification is proven on the787 with a flight deck humidifier fleet selection close to 80 percent and I am convinced that this extended offering will be well received by airlines.”

The 777X will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, with 12 percent lower fuel consumption and 10 percent lower operating costs than the competition.

”I strongly believe that the 777X award with five optional humidifiers per aircraft has a great chance to rival the 787 Dreamliner average shipset content of approx. two humidifiers per aircraft,” comments Torbjörn Johansson, CEO of CTT Systems.

CTT’s humidifier maintains relative humidity in the human comfort zone of approx. 20 percent Relative Humidity. A higher humidity on long-haul flights reduces dry air related problems (e.g. fatigue, jet-lag, red eyes, dry skin, spread of virus diseases) and improves wellbeing and sleep. The humidifier is based on evaporative cooling technology and uses a method that effectively precludes the transfer of bacteria.
