NEDAERO is distributor of filtration systems of Donaldson.
We offer Donaldson filtration systems (air, lube oil, fuel, hydraulics and exhaust) for the aerospace and defense industry. The filtration solutions protect fixed-wing aircraft, rotorcraft, military ground vehicles, electronic equipment, space vehicles, missiles, military shipboard systems and amphibious vehicles. Also Linear Actuators, Pressure Switches, Filter Maintenance Aids and Cockpit Switches are part of the product range.
Air intake filtration solutions for Helicopters – Inlet Barrier Filter
Donaldson Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) systems keep dirt, dust, salt, snow and foreign objects, from degrading the performance and reliability of helicopter engines, thereby helping operators extend engine life and reduce program operating costs. The EASA-certified filters fit on Airbus, Bell, Leonardo and MD helicopters, Sikorsky, UH-60-APU, AH-64A and Ch-47.

IBF equipped Engines expected to reach established TBO:
without internal damage to bleed driven components
without compressor or diffuser erosion
without damage to rotating components
without glazing in the engine hot section
with significant reduction in overhaul costs.
Robinson R66 Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF)
Especially for the Robinson R66 helicopter we offer the Donaldson IBF, p/n 146000-101, which provides added protection for engines operating in dusty environments.
The EASA-certified Donaldson Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) systems keep dirt, dust, salt, snow and foreign objects, from degrading the performance and reliability of helicopter engines, thereby helping operators extend engine life and reduce program operating costs.
The IBF mounts to the same inlet screen as a standard filter, uses the same filter bypass systems and cockpit indications as a standard filter, and imposes no performance penalties making its installation transparent to the pilot. Service intervals for the IBF are 300 hours or annually, and the installation includes a pre-flight sight gauge to provide an early indication that the filter is becoming dirty.
AgustaWestland Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF)
Clean, smooth engine operation is central to the safe, efficient mission-readiness in the popular AgustaWestland line of helicopters. Donaldson Aerospace & Defense produces Certified lnlet Barrier Filter (lBF) systems which are available as an AgustaWestland factory option. IBF Installations require minimal modifications and eliminate 99% of FOD, dirt, and other threats that reduce engine power and damage critical components.

INSTALL BEFORE FLIGHT
Helicopters routinely contend with dust. sand and debris that attack turbine engines and impact engine reliability hampering efficient engine operation. lnstalling an lnlet Barrier Filter (lBF) system is the most effective way to protect engines from damage ranging from lost efficiency to catastrophic failure while adding significant advantages.
More power available than alternate fíltration solutions:
Reduced engine turbine operating temperatures over alternate systems
Reduced engine maintenance over alternate systems
Longer engine life due to elimination of erosion
Meeting established engine time between overhaul requirements
Filter Maintenance Aid
Pre and post flight indication of filter contamination level.
IBF System Cockpit Switch
FILTER – indicator (LED) illuminated based on signal from differential pressure sensor, Caution – high pressure drop indication.
BYPASS – (LED) illuminates whenever the bypass door is open based on door position switch, Caution – Bypass is open.
FILTER – (LED) illuminated indicator will also extinguish once door opens and pressure drop has been reduced, redundant indication for pilot.
