Aircraft Carrier Launch System


Airsan Filters Used in New Aircraft Carrier Launch Systems


A large US military supplier and engineering group was awarded a US Navy contract to replace steam-powered aircraft launch systems with electromagnetic propulsion systems on carriers. However, the new Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) generates a tremendous amount of energy and heat, and its electronics and power storage systems have specific air filtration needs.


Airsan’s Type KK filter was chosen for the project. Airsan’s filter is built with military-grade construction and is a highly efficient permanent, dry type air filter designed to protect ventilated equipment. Combined with the filter’s low maintenance needs and Airsan’s reputation for high quality, this filter provided the air filtration solution needed for this demanding application.
