Parker Aerospace and GKN Aerospace Sign Technology Development Agreement

Parker Aerospace, a business group of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, announceD that its Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Division has entered into a technology development agreement with GKN Aerospace Sweden AB to develop integrated engine static-structure thermal management technologies.


Building on its thermal analysis and macrolamination manufacturing capabilities, Parker is collaborating with GKN Aerospace, as the leader in engine-structure design and manufacturing, to bring structurally integrated thermal management solutions to advanced engines.


This technology improves heat rejection efficiency over traditional plate-fin designs while retaining structural load-bearing properties when integrated into the nacelle.


“Parker Aerospace is proud to bring its macrolamination pedigree from decades of fuel spray nozzle development, in collaboration with GKN Aerospace engine design and testing capabilities,” said Director of Business Development Shawn Isham from Parker’s Gas Turbine Fuel Systems Division.


“Together, our companies will develop integrated structural thermal management solutions for current and future high by-pass turbine engines.”


“Structurally integrated thermal management solutions will be a key enabler for advanced engine architectures requiring more heat sink capability with limited weight impact,” said GKN Engine Systems Vice President of Business Development Alex Guruprasad. “The collaboration will create additional value to GKN’s engine product offering.”
