A Brief Introduction About PW100 Engines
The PW100 family is the engine of choice for modern thirty to ninety passenger turboprop airliners around the world thanks to its excellent durability, reliability, and operating economics. Offering the lowest fuel consumption as well as carbon emissions, and incorporating the latest, proven advanced technologies, PW100 engines have demonstrated that they are the greenest in the airline industry for the shorter routes served by the regional airlines.
PW100 engines are available in thirty-eight models as ranging in power from 1,800 shp to above 5,000 shp, offering unsurpassed flexibility as well as the capability for a variety of applications. PW100 engines power aircraft in service with 366 operators in more than 130 countries. Since the family entered service in 1984, more than 8,000 PW100/150 engines have been produced, accumulating more than 160 million flying hours. PW100 engines have demonstrated their suddenness in powering the aircraft applications which spans the airlines, fire fighting, coastal surveillance, and cargo transport.
PW100 engines incorporate the newest innovative technologies in the drive to exceed the expectations of our customers in fuel consumption, performance, reliability, durability and environment-friendly. PW100-powered regional turboprop aircraft consume twenty-five to forty percent less fuel and produce up to fifty percent lower carbon-dioxide emissions than the same sized jets with correspond to lower greenhouse gases.
The PW100 is a three-shaft and two-spool engine. Low-pressure as well as high-pressure compressors are powered freely by cooled turbine stages. A third shaft with the help of a reduction gearbox combines with the power turbine to the propeller, optimized to establish the best combination of the engine as well as propeller efficiencies.
The result is class-leading fuel consumption and low greenhouse emissions. The latest design technologies, materials and also advanced engine control have enabled best PW100 engines to consistently accomplish more than ten-thousand hours on-wing without a shop visit, an amazing dispatch reliability record and also provide the pilot as well as maintenance team with easy engine operation and maintenance.
