  • Pre-Conditioned Air

    Shut down costly auxiliary power units by utilizing our innovative PCA solutions.

  • Twist Aero PCA

    Generate and deliver heated or cooled air to the aircraft while on the tarmac.

Twist Aero’s brand of Pre-Conditioned Air Units is designed for maximum efficiency, ease of maintenance and reliability.

All units are equipped with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) versus a traditional mechanical damper, resulting in substantial energy savings by reducing the blower speeds. The units are designed with optimal coil and compressor circuitry, which aids in lowering operating costs as well. In addition to the VFD and optimal circuitry; we use R410-A refrigerant that is widely considered to be the most environmentally friendly and efficient throughout the industry.

For ease of maintenance, interior access to the unit is possible through removable side panels. This feature averts the removal of the PCA unit from the boarding bridge for any maintenance activities, which results in a significant cost savings for long-term upkeep.

Reliability is achieved through an experienced, knowledgeable engineering staff coupled with innovative manufacturing practices. Only UL approved component parts are selected. Our refrigeration systems are hermitically controlled to prevent any possibility of leakage. Blowers and fan motors are selected with adequate horsepower to operate in any environmental conditions. Twist Aero utilizes CNC tube bending to reduce the number of solder joints thus mitigating potential leak paths throughout the plumbing circuitry. Utilizing this process, we have successfully removed 65-75% of the solder joints with a goal of continuous improvement.
