The water and waste system supplies potable water to the lavatories and galleys of an airplane, and removes the sink and toilet waste. But how is it stored? How is the waste water discharged? And how is the water refilled? Read more:

Recently a HYDRO team was on-site at @BoeingAirplanes in North Charleston. Their focus was customer care and service, ensuring optimal integration of the COBRA engine change system into the assembly of the #B787.

We are proud that all @Airbus flight lines will be equipped with HYDRO GSE for a period of five years. Airbus uses the GSE on the flight lines to perform a variety of tests on the completed airplanes.

Not an everyday product for our quality inspection team. The Load Limiter easily passed the proof load test with 300 kN tensile force. It is needed in the event of an aircraft recovery scenario, where the aircraft needs to be pulled out.

This week our VP Sales and Business Development Nera-Lee Herzig-Patel and Director Customer Technical Integration Claude Leduc performed a very productive customer service visit to Boeing Field Delivery Center.
#Boeing #seattle #customerservice #insafehands

In case of a recovery scenario, where the aircraft needs to be pulled out, a load limiter is the right thing to complement your existing debugging kit. It monitors the maximum applicable load and disconnects if an excess load is being applied.
