Pall Corporation to supply Rolls-Royce with complete filtration system for Trent XWB engine

Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL), a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, today announced its selection by Rolls-Royce as its filtration supplier for the Trent XWB® commercial aircraft engine, designed to power the Airbus A350 XWB family of extra-wide body commercial airliners.

The Airbus A350 XWB has more than 500 announced orders from 33 global carriers, and is likely to be in service for decades to come. More than 6,000 Airbus aircraft have been delivered worldwide, and industry forecasts project over $100 billion revenue from future commercial aircraft production.

The Trent XWB engine is due to enter service in 2013, and Pall deliveries have already begun in time for the engine's certification programme. The first engine run of the Trent XWB was successfully completed in June of this year. The Rolls-Royce supply contract is for the life of the engine programme.

"Rolls-Royce has set new standards for efficiency, life cycle cost and environmental impact with the Trent XWB engine," said Jim Western, president, Pall Aerospace. The Trent XWB engine lubrication filtration system is based on Pall's patented Ultipleat® filter technology, a laid-over pleat design that maximizes the filtration surface. The small envelope packaging results in a lightweight, high performance product. The Trent XWB utilizes Pall filters for both high pressure and low pressure lines in the engine compartment, improving fluid cleanliness levels and engine reliability.
