Heating conductor system stops pipes freezing

When the first Airbus A380 – the largest passenger airliner of all time – lifted off successfully for its first flight, special safety technology made by Bartec was also on board. The extreme cold temperatures which the water and sewer pipes are subjected to during a typical flight operation require the constant controlled heating of the aircraft’s pipelines. Bartec’s heating conductor systems offered reliable protection against water damage due to frost exposure both on the ground and in the air. As early as 1987, Bartec succeeded in concluding a long term supply contract for the application of its products in Airbus airliners. This cooperation had begun with the supply of heating cables in previous airliners made by the aviation giant. In 2001, Bartec – in cooperation with the development department of Airbus – devised a new heating conductor system with increased safety standards, which met all the stringent requirements for application with Airbus airliner types. Since then, these specialist heating conductor systems have been applied in all the series A319 and A340 aircraft. Based on the successful track record of these high quality systems, which have been installed in successive Airbus models from the very beginning, Bartec heating conductor systems are now used in the very latest, high-tech A380.
