Passengers' demands for hygienic, touch-free operation of faucets in frequently used washrooms on passenger aircraft are constantly increasing. At the same time, electrical control of the fittings ensures the lowest possible water consumption.
Kendrion develops electromagnetic switching and proportional valves according to customer specifications in order to optimize non-contact actuation in the entire lavatory area. The Kendrion water valve concept specifically supports pressurized water systems by allowing remaining line air to escape from the valve after the system has been drained and refilled until a continuous flow of water is assured. Unpleasant pressure surge effects with uncontrolled splash water are thus avoided.
Since aircraft worldwide are refueled with fresh water of varying quality, the water valve meets the highest standards of resistance to corrosion and particle contamination.
Kendrion is your sparring partner for supporting electrically switched water applications in galleys and lavatories with decades of technology know-how in solenoid valve technology.
NBAA's goal is to foster an environment that allows business aviation to thrive in the United States and around the world.We pursue that goal by constantly striving to be a world-class organization that enhances safety, security andprofessionalism; provides operation assistance to our Members; shapes public policy; projects a positive imageof our industry; and hosts leading aviation shows and conferences.
Aviation engineering calls for reliable and durable solutions developed and manufactured according to specific standards.
KENDRION offers such solutions designed according to customer-specific requirements. For this purpose, we utilise our special experience in the field of aviation engineering, combining it with our complete technology portfolio and our comprehensive know-how in fields, such as electronics, control systems, as well as solenoid and pneumatic technology.
Let us inspire you with innovative solutions in the following product areas:
Magnetic locking systems for doors, lids etc. Our Stored Energy technology is characterised by pulse control for opening with minimum power requirements. They require no power in opened and closed condition while offering high locking forces at a small and compact design.
Valves for compressed air and oxygen supply in life support systems. Media separated water valves for sanitary equipment or for water and drink supply in galley equipment. Valve systems for solutions to enhance the seating comfort. The Airboard® is an interesting solution integrating an electronic control board and a valve unit. This offers a lightweight and highly compact alternative to conventional solutions based upon valves mounted on a connection plate and separate control electronics.
Electronic components represent one of our traditional technology areas. We use electronic solutions to control solenoid and fluid systems to realise maximum performance in combination with low space requirements and minimum weight.
Based upon individual components and complete systems integrating mechanics and electronic, we efficiently design pneumatic actors, solenoid-based locking-systems or fluid systems for lavatories and on-board kitchens.
