Thermal Management Systems/Aerospace Fans/Aerospace Pumps

Thermal Management Systems

Meggitt Defense Systems specializes in thermal management for extreme environments. Our aerospace pumps and aerospace fans can be found on military and commercial platforms worldwide. We are a true innovator in the development of thermal management systems for ISR/C4I/EW platforms. From 200w to 150kw, our ramair/vapor cycle thermal management systems can be used on large transports like the P-8, C-130 and business jets, high performance aircraft, helicopters and UAV’s/UGV’s. We provide a complete thermal management solution including sensor cooling, electronic cooling, air handling units and controls.

Meggitt Defense Systems has been a leader in supplemental Thermal Management Systems for over fifty years. We have delivered thousands of SWaP optimized Thermal Management Systems and supplemental Vapor Cycle Systems operating on some of the most advanced military platforms around the world.

Aerospace Fans

Meggitt Defense Systems mechanical, electrical & hydraulic drive aerospace fans may be found on the majority of US armored combat vehicles, helicopters, and a number of ground based weapon systems. Our aerospace fans are designed for minimum weight, high performance, and maximum efficiency.  We design and produce vaneaxial, mixed flow, and centrifugal fans that operate from -65°F – +220°F,  at speed between 3,600 – 24,000 RPM, with flows ranging from 67 – 15,600 CFM, with pressure rises from 2’’ – 35” WG.  Our aerospace fans come complete with properly sized integrated AC/DC motors for 115/200 VAC, 60 Hz and 28, 270 and 600 VDC.  Our aerospace fans can also be sized and linked up to independent AC/DC motors, hydraulic motors, and to direct gearboxes and engine PTO’s.

Aerospace Pumps

Meggitt Defense Systems has many years’ experience producing high-performance aerospace pumps. Our design process considers all aspects of the application before forming an integrated solution resulting in maximum flow and pressure increase for a given volume and weight.

We have a wide variety of lubrication and cooling pumps on aerospace, land, and sea applications. Our aerospace pumps have been produced in a wide variety of configurations, ranging from gerotors to centrifugal pumps with various drives. Drive methods include the use of AC induction, brushless DC,  and direct shaft drive. Meggitt aerospace pumps are found on many platforms, such as the Apache AH-64, Osprey V-22, Eagle F-15, and LCAC. Meggitt is developing pumps for the Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) as well as aerospace, land, and sea applications.
