Precision bearing specialist Carter Manufacturing has joined the Future Engine Technology for the Control of Hydrogen (FETCH) project.
The project is a collaboration of the University of Bath/IAAPS, Cranfield University, along with Moog Aircraft in the UK, Baker Hughes Druck, and Curtiss-Wright.
The focus is on developing key technologies required to exploit the benefits of future aircraft hydrogen fuel systems. The project has secured match funding from the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) program, a joint Government and industry investment, and is one of a number of initiatives designed to maintain and grow the UK’s competitive position in civil aerospace design and manufacture.
Carter Manufacturing’s contribution to this innovative project is to develop bespoke bearing solutions for liquid and gaseous hydrogen. This is based on experience in developing bearings for cryogenic applications, such as rocket propulsion, and commercial industrial pump applications, along with scientific research.
