The aerospace manufacturing and facility management industry is constantly evolving due to advancements in technology. These technological advancements have led to more sophisticated equipment storage and maintenance requirements for aerospace products and equipment. Nortec’s white paper, “5 Trends Shaping the Future of Aerospace Facility Management,” presents actionable strategies for maintaining accuracy control throughout facilities for optimal equipment performance and reliability.

“Equipment integrity and reliability is a paramount concern for the aerospace industry and this optimal performance hinges on maintaining proper indoor air quality controls,” said Duncan Curd, GM of Nortec. “With effective air quality management, aerospace facilities not only experience improved reliability and performance, but also better product quality and energy savings in operations.”

The manufacturing process and storage requirements for the aerospace industry rely on an ideal humidity level between 40% - 60% RH. Insufficient or excessive humidity levels can result in an impaired curing environment for composites, sealants, coatings and welding. Improper humidity control can also lead to damage and defects to electronic components through electrostatic discharge (ESD), brittle components or condensation. These problems ultimately pose safety concerns in manufacturing or storage facilities and an increased potential for performance malfunctions in the field.

“It has always been of the utmost importance for Nortec to be at the forefront of our industry, employing the latest methods and techniques to deliver superior results,” said Duncan Curd. “With adiabatic evaporative cooling technology and humidification control, Nortec provides trusted solutions to improve production output, enhance product quality and increase aircraft flying time.”  

Nortec will displaying the latest in humidification control for the aerospace industry at two upcoming industry tradeshows: FAMEX (Feria Aeroespacial Mexico), April 26-29, 2017 and SoCal Aerospace, May 11-12, 2017. At each show, Nortec will be presenting its wide selection of products including the DL Series, DR Series, HP Series.
