Lufthansa Technik is offering two innovative products for private aircraft cabins: a steam generator for steam showers and an on-board oxygen generator. The steam generator, consisting of a steam outlet, a control panel and a refill port for the vaporizer fluid, is self-contained and does not have to be connected to the aircraft’s water system. Aroma oils can also be addedInstalling the steam shower is particularly challenging: overheating inside the steam generator must be impossible, and the shower enclosure must be so well sealed that no steam can escape.
Lufthansa Technik of Hamburg, Germany (Booth H614) is showcasing two innovative products for VIP cabins here at ABACE 2014 in Shanghai: an “Aircraft Steam Generator System” for steam showers; and the “On Board Oxygen Generation System” which delivers an unlimited supply of therapeutic oxygen.
The steam generator facilitates installation of steam showers in VIP aircraft. The self-contained unit, which has an empty weight of 18 kg, does not need to be connected to the aircraft’s existing water system. Essential oils can be added to aromatize the room.
Of all the potential health risks found in a maintenance facility, a mechanic probably devotes the least concern to the ubiquitous cloth shop towel–yet it has become the focal point of controversy. The question is whether or not a clean, reusable cloth shop towel contains hazardous residues that can be transferred to the mechanic.
