CIRCOR Aerospace was selected by Triumph Actuation Systems to supply the Landing Gear Emergency Blow-Down System for the Sikorsky CH-53K Helicopter through its Aerodyne Controls brand. CIRCOR Aerospace will design, develop, and manufacture the landing gear blow down system from the Ronkonkoma, NY facility.
In the event of hydraulic power loss, the CIRCOR Aerospace landing gear emergency blow-down system provides pneumatic power to the Triumph actuators which extend the landing gear. Aerodyne will provide an integrated unit which includes all necessary valves, gauge and nitrogen storage bottle in a small manifold mounted on the actuator. The system’s light weight and compact size were major factors in the award.
“CIRCOR Aerospace/Aerodyne Controls welcomes the opportunity to work with Triumph Actuation Systems on this safety-critical application,” said Christopher Celtruda, Group Vice President for CIRCOR Aerospace Products. The CH-53K Landing Gear Emergency Blow-down System will be designed and manufactured at the CIRCOR Aerospace/Aerodyne Controls business unit location in Ronkonkoma, NY.
