Parker Aerospace, an operating segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), extends its congratulations to the employees of Airbus and Rolls-Royce upon the companies’ successful first flight of the A350 XWB and its Trent XWB engines. Parker Aerospace provides the composite, twin-aisle jetliner with its fuel and hydraulic systems, as well as the landing gear hydraulic dressing, engine build unit, and a variety of equipment for the Trent XWB.
“This is an exciting day for Airbus and Rolls-Royce,” remarked Parker Aerospace President Roger Sherrard. “We congratulate the team that made the A350’s first flight a reality, as it introduces this outstanding aircraft and its engines into service. The Parker Aerospace team is proud to support the A350 and Trent XWB; with the aircraft’s new, state-of-the-art technology, it is clear that it will provide significant increases in fuel efficiency, reliability, and passenger comfort.”
Parker Aerospace provides the entire fuel system equipment package, including the fuel tank inerting system, fuel measurement and management system, fluid mechanical equipment, and engine feed and transfer fuel pumps.
The A350’s sensors and components are designed to meet the latest FAR 25.981 safety requirements, and include a plastic level sensor that uses sound to detect the presence of fuel. An in-line fuel properties unit saves weight and reduces the overall system cost.Parker Aerospace supplies the A350’s hydraulic power generation and distribution system used to power and control the aircraft. Operating at a higher pressure level of 5,000 psi, the system uses smaller components and distribution lines, which reduces the weight of the equipment and leads to fuel cost savings. Parker’s hydraulic system products include pumps, reservoirs, manifolds, accumulators, thermal controls, isolation valves, and software. Parker Aerospace designs and builds equipment for the A350 fluid conveyance system, as well as the engine build unit and the landing gear hydraulic dressing.
