The vast majority of aircraft filters are disposed of after just one use. However there are a number of aircraft filters that can be overhauled and used again. In some case, filters can be used numerous times before they require replacing. Can you imagine the savings?
Destructive manufacturing techniques, such as machining, result in the removal of large amounts of bulk material often meaning operations can result in over 90% waste material.
For high-value aerospace components manufactured in expensive metals, material buy-to-fly ratios of 15:1 are not uncommon (15 kg of material to a produce1 kg component)
Utilising our “we care to repair” scheme typically saves 50% against the cost of new filters whilst reducing lead-times and environmental impact. Potentially hundreds of thousand dollars are realistic against a modern fleet.
