Honeywell’s HTF7500E Turbofan Propulsion System for New Embraer Business Jets Designed to Reduce NOx and Deliver Best in Class Fuel Economy
Propulsion System Will Include Reduced Engine Weight
GENEVA, EBACE.- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that its HTF7500E turbofan propulsion system family for Embraer’s new MSJ/MLJ family of business aircraft will include technology that will reduce NOx, deliver best in class fuel economy and still deliver the reliability that the HTF7000 family of engines has established as an industry benchmark.
The new engine will use Honeywell’s proprietary “SABER” technologies, a unique package of advanced combustor technologies that include the use of an innovative “rich-quench-lean” configuration to improve fuel burn and significantly reduce the production of nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide, unburned fuel emissions and smoke.
The engine will also feature weight reductions achieved through design changes and material substitutions including use of composites and titanium alloys.
“The HTF7500E will offer on-condition maintenance by design, and maintenance intervals will be synchronized with the airframe inspections,” said Rob Wilson, President, Business and General Aviation. “Honeywell designed the engine with an acoustic signature well under stage four noise requirements and will be backed by our industry-leading maintenance service plan.”
“We are delivering a propulsion system that will incorporate the newest technologies while building on a proven design that is delivering a benchmark level of reliability in this thrust class,” said Carl Esposito, Vice President, Sales and Service, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “With more than 360 HTF7000 engines in worldwide service that have accrued more than 365,000 hours of operation since entering service four years ago, the HTF7000 is delivering better than 99.96% dispatch reliability for our customers.”
Honeywell will provide the complete integrated propulsion system, including the nacelle system and thrust reverser. The engine will be covered by Honeywell’s Maintenance Service Plan and supported worldwide by Honeywell’s experienced team of Field Service Engineers.
Based in Phoenix, Honeywell’s $12 billion aerospace business is a leading global provider of integrated avionics, engines, systems and service solutions for aircraft manufacturers, airlines, business and general aviation, military, space and airport operations.
