Liebherr-Aerospace: Final Assembly of First Bleed System Parts for Silvercrest Test Bed

Liebherr-Aerospace's new generation bleed system will substantially contribute to the Silvercrest engine's reduced environmental footprint with highly reliable, lightweight and compact electro-pneumatic technology.


Liebherr-Aerospace has been selected by the French engine manufacturer Snecma (Safran) to supply the engine bleed air system for the Silvercrest engine. The system includes high-pressure and high-temperature valves, a pre-cooler, high-pressure ducting and related sensors and controls. Liebherr-Aerospace’s new generation bleed system will substantially contribute to the Silvercrest engine’s reduced environmental footprint with highly reliable, lightweight and compact electro-pneumatic technology.

Liebherr-Aerospace has achieved now a milestone in the development of the bleed air system with the start of the final assembly and the testing of the parts, i.e. valves and pre-cooler, that will be delivered to Snecma for the flying test bench. The design, development and manufacturing of the bleed system is under the responsibility of Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Toulouse (France), Liebherr’s center of excellence for aerospace air management systems.
