Within the realm of aviation, hoses may be used for a variety of systems and applications. From fuel lines to hydraulic systems, aircraft hoses are an important component for standard operations. In general, hoses are a flexible tube that may be used to transport fluids between two locations. Depending on their application, hoses may vary in their materials, pressure rating, flexibility, and other factors. Common hose materials that are used across standard applications include synthetic rubbers, natural rubbers, PVC, nylon, polyurethane, and polyethylene. In this blog, we will provide an overview of the aircraft tubing system, and how hoses benefit aviation and related activities.

A heat exchanger is a device that allows heat from a liquid or gas to pass onto a second fluid without the two fluids having to mix together or come into direct contact with one another. In simpler terms, the heat exchanger transfers heat without transferring the source of said heat. They are commonly used to cool hydraulics, ram air, auxiliary power units, gearboxes, and many other components found in an aircraft.

The propeller, an essential part of an aircraft, is a device that converts rotational energy from the engine into propulsive force. Though the propeller is a relatively straightforward piece of machinery, it comes in many different variations depending on the performance requirements of a given aircraft. Here are the six most common types of aircraft propellers and their unique characteristics.

Most people know, simply from looking upwards at a flying aircraft, that planes have their own set of lights attached to them. However only pilots, aircraft mechanics and others in the industry know what each light means and why they are positioned the way that they are. For a basic outline on aircraft lights and when they are utilized, read on below.

Aircraft tires are one of the most important components of an aircraft for taxiing, takeoff, and landing. Because of the high amount of stress that is endured with each flight, it is critical that they are regularly inspected and replaced as necessary. There are many factors that may decide whether a tire should undergo MRO, and monitoring these signs and more can help you know when it is time for repair and replacement.

Almost all modern turbine engine aircraft incorporate air compressors in their systems. Turbine engines use an air compressor to increase the pressure of incoming air before it enters the combustor. There are two types of air compressor used in aviation, axial and centrifugal.

Propellers are, single-handedly, the most noticeable part on an aircraft. Using energy from the engine to spin, the aircraft propeller is used to create thrust by rotation.

Depending on the type of aircraft, the propeller can look very differently. The number of blades increases as the size of the aircraft engine increases, to ensure proper power distribution. And, propeller blades can vary in material, such as wood, fiberglass, composites, and metals, depending on how strong or durable they have to be.
