PROCESS ENGINEERING PLANTS IN STAINLESS STEEL

TURNKEY SOLUTIONS FROM A SINGLE SOURCE

Aircraft Ground Energy System AGES

For over 40 years, we have been manufacturing and assembling stainless steel process engineering plants, equipment, tanks and pipelines for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, food and beverage industries, machinery and printing industries, as well as for water supply systems, municipal facilities and airports.

In the field of Airport Systems, we offer the world‘s first totally integrated system for the supply of electrical power (400 Hz) and pre-conditioned air (PCA) to aircraft on the ground: the Aircraft Ground Energy System AGES.

In the last decades, the cooling of the aircraft has been conventionally carried out with DX equipment, whereby optimal cooling of the Aircraft cabin was never achieved. ISTinox DXi stands for a conventional, stand-alone PCA device (DX) with the difference that we revolutionize the cooling of the aircraft with an innovative (i) new concept and thus ensuring the well-being of the passengers and the aircraft crew under all conditions.

Through the use of high-quality materials, ISTinox Pre-conditioned Air products have an above average service life with low maintenance and minimal pressure and temperature losses. In addition, the use of stainless steel allows compliance with the highest hygienic standards.

Latest News: ISTinox "Elephantino" at Airport Zurich

29.06.2020

The first ISTinox "Elephantino" system has been implemented at Airport Zurich Terminal B.

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.

News: ISTinox PCA unit at Munich Airport

11.12.2019

IST is proud to announce the installation of its first ISTinox Dxi 400 PCA unit at Munich Airport.

ISTinox DXi stands for a conventional, stand-alone PCA device (DX) with the difference that we revolutionize the cooling of the aircraft with an innovative (i) new concept and thus ensuring the well-being of the passengers and the aircraft crew under all conditions.

In order to optimize the cooling of the aircrafts, the new DXi unit has two cooling coils to ensure continuous cooling of the aircraft even during defrosting. In addition, the new refrigeration concept also optimizes the regulation of the defrost cycle. De-icing only takes place when it is necessary and, contrary to existing systems, it is not timed but measured.
