TURBINE POWERED AIR START

FOR COMMERCIAL AND MILITARY PURPOSES

The Air Start Units of the MSU family are powered by a simple cycle bleed type gas turbine of the latest state of the art design.  The units deliver compressed air for the main engine start and for the operation of the onboard environmental control system.

 

The MSU family features the benefits of compact design and multi fuel capability. High reliability and no scheduled maintenance result in very low cost of ownership. The successful operation of the units is proven in all climatic conditions on all five continents.

 

Safety features are incorporated in the Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) which includes an integrated Built-In-Test-Equipment (BITE).

 

The MSU is powered by a simple cycle bleed type gas turbine of the latest state of the art design. The units deliver compressed air for starting the main engine (MES-mode) and for the operation of the onboard Environmental Control System (ECS-mode). The two modes are detected automatically.
