Company Will Provide Mitsubishi Regional Jet APU Inlet And
Hartzell Aerospace has been awarded
a long term contract by LMI Aerospace to design and supply the APU
inlet and exhaust components for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ),
expected to enter into service in 2014.
Hartzell Aerospace said Tuesday in a news release that it will
be responsible for the component design from the joint development
phase, through to aircraft certification and product support, and
has been working with the LMI/MRJ team members for almost a year.
Hartzell Aerospace will provide the engineering required to meet
the program schedule and expectations including: design, analysis,
testing, certification support, and tool design. Design and
manufacturing will be supplied by AcousticFab, LLC in Sanford
The APU inlet and exhaust are critical components of the tail
cone assembly awarded to LMI. Hartzell-designed inlet systems
provide noise attenuated, flow balanced air to the APU. Properly
profiled exhaust nozzles and systems dissipate hot exhaust gas,
while optimizing sound reduction to ensure the lowest possible ramp
noise at aircraft service locations. The inlet and exhaust will
include noise attenuation treatment to meet the noise requirements
of the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) noise
management. To meet this requirement, Hartzell Aerospace is using
its proprietary noise treatment material, Acousti-Flo 2.2.
"This is the third major program award for Hartzell Aerospace in
the last six months," said Simon Shackelton, vice president of
sales and marketing for Hartzell Aerospace. "With two new
design-build programs for APU inlets and exhausts, we are placing
ourselves in a great position to be the preeminent supplier of APU
kits for future programs. Our technical strength and total value is
very evident to our customers."
Hartzell Aerospace's sound attenuation technology is used in a
variety of APU and ECS applications for transport and business jet
aircraft including: Boeing 787, Bombardier Q400, Comac ARJ 21,
Embraer 135/145, Embraer 170/190, Hawker 4000, Hawker 900XP.
