Crane to provide Fuel Flow Transmitters on new GE Aviation engines
Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co. has been selected by GE Aviation to provide the Fuel Flow Transmitters for GE Aviation’s LEAP-X and Passport 20 engines. Crane’s fuel flow transmitters measure fuel flow rate in mass, not volume, for exceptionally high accuracy.
GE Aviation’s LEAP-X engines are designed for single-aisle aircraft, including the COMAC C919 and Airbus A320neo. 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.
