Crane

FARNBOROUGH, England, 10 July 2012. GE Aviation has selected Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co. (NYSE:CR), to provide its Fuel Flow Transmitters, which measure fuel flow rate in mass, for GE Aviation LEAP-X and Passport 20 engines.

GE Aviation’s LEAP-X engines are designed for single-aisle aircraft, including the COMAC C919 and Airbus A320neo, whereas the GE Passport 20 engine will be used on business aircraft, such as the Bombardier Global 7000/888. Entry into service is planned in 2014.

“We expect this to be one of the largest Fuel Flow Transmitter programs in our history,” says John J. Higgs, vice president of Fluid Management Systems for Crane Aerospace & Electronics. “We are very proud to be a part of these new and highly efficient engines.”

Crane’s Fuel Flow Transmitters, with more than 25,000 units in service, are known for high performance, reliability and accuracy, featuring an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) of 50,000 hours.
