A new self-contained lavatory water system developed by Fullerton, Calif.-based Adams Rite Aerospace has received FAA, JAA and Transport Canada approval for installation in the Bombardier Challenger 300. A similar system, now in development, is an optional item for the Challenger 300 galley. The new design, according to Adams Rite, eliminates the need for heavier, traditional bleed-air/compressor-powered designs. The system is being shipped in kit form to Bombardier for installation. The “plug and play” kit can be supplied complete with faucets, drains and tanks. It also includes a level-sensing device in the water storage tank, a heated pump head and a remote-mounted status indicator/reset switch for electronic self-testing circuitry. Adams Rite said the system can be easily adapted for other aircraft.
