Composite pipes and tubes prevent flow a electric current from a lightening strike while still facilitating dissipation a static charge.
Composite pipes and tubes for aerospace fluid transfer are fitted within the aircraft fuel and hydraulic systems to prevent the effect of a lightning strike, while still facilitating dissipation of a static charge. CTG has developed a robust method of joining the composite tube/pipe with various metal fittings. The composite pipes and tubes allows the precise tuning of electrical resistivity and fly on aircraft today.
Highly Resistive Fittings and Isolators are fitted within the fuel and hydraulic systems of the aircraft to prevent flow of electric current from a lightning strike while still facilitating dissipation of a static charge. CTG has developed a robust method of joining the composite tube/pipe with various metal fittings.
Being an additive manufacturing process CTG's unique filament winding provides flexibility for our customers who can develop their aircraft solution without high tooling costs. Materials are combined in their lowest cost form using an automated wet wound process to provide a low cost solution free from manufacturing defects. CTG has invested a significant time and effect to obtain material data to ensure a low weight certifiable solution.
CTG has a team of experienced engineers who would be happy to discuss your specific aerospace requirements and installation to design, make and qualify a solution for your application.
