As the aviation industry continues to grow and the need for filter replacements is ever present, the global aircraft filter market has seen consistent expansion over the years. As of the present, the global aircraft filter market has been projected to grow around 21.75% over the years between 2021 and 2026, featuring a CAGR of 4.0% across the same period. This growth is due to various factors, examples being a steady increase of aircraft renewals and deliveries.

Due to the intensity of aviation operations, many components can easily face wear and tear over time, and other parts may become bent, dent, or otherwise deformed due to stressors or force. As a loss of integrity or a change in functionality can affect the overall performance and safety of an aircraft, it is imperative that damaged items are rapidly attended to in order to ensure that the aircraft gets back up and flying again as soon as possible.

While the collection of moisture is fairly unavoidable, unchecked accumulation can eventually result in heavy damage that can only be reversed with significant repairs or the replacement of parts. In order to mitigate the buildup of hazardous moisture, assemblies utilize what is known as a drain valve for protection.

Bearings are a common component to assemblies with moving parts, facilitating motion while minimizing the amount of friction generated between surfaces. Bearings may come in many forms to accommodate varying applications, popular types including the plain bearing, ball bearing, and roller bearing. As each type may vary by its design, load capacities, speeds, and more, it is very important that the correct bearing is implemented within a system to avoid costly failures or downtimes. In this blog, we will discuss some of the main considerations that should be made when deciding between bearings, allowing you to narrow down your search with ease.

Fasteners are important components for numerous applications, allowing for two or more parts to be secured together to prevent their separation. When there is a need for retaining a fastener’s position within an installation, there are a number of fastener types or methods that may be employed. Captive fasteners in particular are specialized fastener types that are specifically engineered to retain a permanent hold when installed, even maintaining its installation upon servicing. They are often used for the means of deterring the loss of a fastener or damage that results from loose parts, and they can come in varying forms depending on the need and application.

Fasteners are components that are paramount to countless assemblies, securing parts together while also distributing loads and forces. Fasteners can come in various forms, including those such as rivets, screws, nuts, and washers. Blind rivets in particular are a specialized rivet, and they are often used for applications such as aircraft construction. Unlike a conventional rivet, blind rivets can be installed from one side of an assembly, making them very beneficial for a number of uses.

An Actuator is a mechanical or electromechanical device that controls movement or positioning. Actuators are components within a machine that carry out the moving and controlling of a mechanism or system, such as the opening or closing of a valve. Because of this, actuators are sometimes called movers. To operate, actuators need a control signal and source of energy. Following receival of a control signal, the actuator uses energy from the source to foster mechanical motion. Actuators have many uses and therefore come in many types. In this blog, we will look at the most common types of actuators.

Pneumatic valves control the pressure, flow rate, direction, and amount of air that travels through a pneumatic system. Pneumatic systems are integral in countless industrial applications where they control a power source. While the medium in the system is fluid, such as in a hydraulic system, the way in which it is controlled is different. There are many types of pneumatic valves that can be used to control the pressure and flow of fluid. The most common of these are pressure relief valves, flow control valves, and directional control valves. In this blog, we will take a look at each type and its unique characteristics.

The screw, characterized by a helical threading around a long shaft, is the most common fastener in the world. When two or more solid objects need to be joined, you can bet that screws will likely be used. They offer an easy and effective solution for joining solid objects. While all screws feature a helical threading around a shaft, screws are not all the same. In fact, there are six common types of screws: wood, machine, lag, sheet metal, twinfast, and security screws. This blog will discuss each type and its unique distinctions.
