  • Fans & Blowers

    With over 80 years' experience in the design and manufacture of air moving products and systems, AMETEK Airtechnology Group fans and blowers deliver reliable and effective solutions for challenging aerospace and defence applications, in extreme environments. With a particular expertise in direct drive fan applications, such as found in rotary wing transmission cooling and military vehicle applications - together with applications where their mixed flow fan technology is most effective, for example engine sand scavenge and higher flow/pressure applications where a negligible stall characteristic is an advantage - AMETEK Airtechnology Groups continues to provide optimum performance.

  • Sand Scavenge Fans

    Sand Scavenge systems are often used on helicopters and armoured fighting vehicles to prevent sand ingestion into the engine, avionics bays or CBRN filters.These fans are specifically used to evacuate sand or dust laden air from vehicles.

  • Gun Smoke Extraction Fans

    In today’s combat vehicles, it is ever more necessary to ensure that military personnel are not exposed to unnecessary risk to health. Gun smoke, is at least a discomfort to personnel in confined spaces, and may contain toxic elements that represent a health hazard.

  • Engine Cooling Fans
    Engine Cooling Fans

    Designed for high performance with low power consumption, AMETEK Airtechnology Group's durable Mixed Flow Engine Cooling fans provide a degree of installation flexibility not generally available from other traditional engine cooling fan types. In addition to being available with a wide range of drive options and potential mounting options, the aerodynamic characteristics of the mixed flow impeller allow them to operate equally effectively in axial and centrifugal type applications. The backward-inclided blade geometry are particularly suited for use in dusty conditions, in that the blades remain clean, thus avoiding loss of efficiency.

  • Gearbox Cooling Fans
    Gearbox Cooling Fans

    AMETEK Airtechnology Group specialises in the design and manufacture of direct drive fan / impeller units used for engine and gearbox oil cooling. Our fans are designed specifically to suit customers space envelope whilst achiving the performance requirements. Our Fans/Impellers take either an axial, centrifugal or mixed flow form (combination of axial & centrifugal). In addition to the fan, static guide vanes are often supplied to boost performance together with carbon / kevlar composite ducting to optimse aerodynamic flow and safely contain the fan in a blade-off scenario. Fans are typically driven directly by the engine transmission or by using a hydraulic system. A splined sheer neck drive connects the drive and fan and is designed to fail at a given torque to limit damage should the main transmission seize.

  • Pilot Cooling
    Pilot Cooling Systems

    AMETEK Pilot Cooling Units provide a continuous supply of a temperature controlled liquid, for circulation through a cooling vest for personnel cooling, thereby maintaining the wearer's body core temperature in extreme physical and ambient temperature conditions. This capability can be provided in an aircraft installed installation, where cooling is derived from an on-board source, or from a miniature vapour cycle liquid cooling system capable of operation in both ground and flight conditions. Such portable systems are optimised to minimise size and weight and operate from either an aircraft 28V dc electrical supply or, for ground operation, an optional Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery pack.

    Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC)

    AMETEK Airtechnology Group has developed a particular expertise in the design of Air Conditioning Systems (A/C), to provide habitable environments for the crew/occupants of vehicles, shelters and containers. Often such environments require the occupants to operate under stress in a closed down volume, in extremes of ambient temperatures - which, even in temperate regions, may result in the temperature of their working environment climbing to levels well above the external ambient temperature, unless an A/C System is integrated. Such systems may also include some form of heating and often need to be compatible with the operation of a CBRN Filtration System.

  • Electrical Heaters
    Electrical Heaters

    AMETEK Airtechnology Group has developed a range of heaters and fan heaters for aerospace applications, providing a wide range of heating outputs. The heater and fan heaters can be supplied to suit standard and special duct configurations, or as stand-alone heaters, providing sufficient airflow and pressure to accommodate discharge louvres and air filters, if required. Of lightweight and robust constuction, fan heaters can be configured for 28 VDC or single/three phase 400 Hz supply and heaters can be supplied for 28 VDC, 270 VDC or 115/200 V supply, as per the application requirements. All include thermal protection. Heaters are also available for Mil Vehicle and Naval applications.
