Introducing the new ISTinox PCA Hose Retriever


The optimal layout of the air hose is a big challenge, since the PCA connections of the different aircraft types are at different positions. To enable an optimal operation, flexible handling of the hose length is required.With the new ISTinox retriever system, we can cover this need of the airports. Depending on the type of aircraft, the ground staff can roll out the specifically needed length of the air hose. This prevents the overhang of the hose on the apron and reduces the potential for kinks and corresponding pressure losses. Through the use of a remote control device located at the connection to the aircraft, the retriever can be operated easily and safely by one person, thus minimizing wear to the air hose and the aircraft coupling.

Installation of DX 400 at Bilbao Airport

At an outside temperature of 29.7°C, the aircraft cabin of an Airbus A 320 was cooled down to the target temperature of 24°C within a very short time.
