Boeing F/A-18E/F & EA-18G
The F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is a combat-proven strike fighter with built-in versatility. The Super Hornet was designed as a high performance multi-role fighter/attack aircraft with a suite of integrated and networked systems that provides enhanced interoperability, total force support for the combatant commander and for the troops on the ground.
Eaton's Vickers™ brand “dual-pressure” hydraulic pumps can be transitioned from 3000psi to 5000psi which allows the flight control computer to match the pump horsepower to the aircraft’s control surface load.
Eaton's Aeroquip® brand products support the routing for the hydraulic system. They utilize a 5000psi fire zone rated hose and self-sealing end fittings. In addition, they utilize 5000psi Rynglok™ tube fitting products, connecting tube assemblies, and wing fold and landing gear swivels. Eaton provides the main engine fuel line, the electronic cooling hose and coupling products, and high temperature air applications utilizing V-band couplings and flanges.
Modern military fighters have sophisticated environmental control systems (ECS) which support cabin air quality and pilot survivability. These highly reliable and complex ECS systems use Eaton's static seals, flanges and couplings at the joints of the ducting system. These components are designed to manage the conveyance of high pressure, high temperature air under the most challenging G-forces.
Other Eaton products include, Tedeco® brand debris monitoring chip detectors and Prismalite® manual level gauges for the engine lube system. Magnetic float switches for remote oil level indication. Levelmaster® electro/optical sensor to detect the presence of fuel during air to air refueling. Centurion™ brand mechanical seals for the engine gearbox.
