ASU GS RANGE (180ppm / 280ppm / 400ppm) The Air Start Unit requires high reliability in order to avoid AOG (Aircraft on Ground) in case of failure of an APU (Auxiliary Power Unit). It must be able, at any time and for any type of aircraft, to provide the necessary compressed air (42PSI of pressure) to run the turbines and perform the start-up. GUINAULT designed the safest Air Start Unit in the world using components known for their reliability, such as Deutz, Scania, and MTU engines, coupled with GHH RAND screw compressors. The use of electronic regulation allows them to operate in the best conditions and thus improve their lifespan, to limit noise at airports, and significantly reduce fuel consumption. GENERATING VALUE • Drastically reduce the risk of AOG • Reduce costs by covering a wide range of aircraft with just one model • Fuel savings (variable engine speed operation 1300-2000 rpm)compared to conventional t technologies • Provide very low maintenance costs (diesel engine) • Extend the lifespan of the product by an optimized operation (variable speed) • Reduce the level of noise on the tarmac (by reducing engine speed) • Extend the lifespan by the use of proprietary regulation technology (elimination of the risk of obsolescence of spare) ADVANTAGES • Sturdiness and reliability • Optimized design • Ease of use • Electronic control • Ease of maintenance • No risk of obsolescence of the control system SPECIFICATIONS Nominal flow rate (*): 180 ppm / 280 ppm / 400 ppm Chassis: trailer / self-propelled Pressure (*): 42 psi Diesel engine: Deutz Dimensions: 4700 x 1940 x 2450 mm Weight: 4300 kg (*): at 15°C, at sea level
