Bell Helicopter to Distribute Donaldson IVF for Bell 407 Airframes
Source: Bell Helicopter
Bell Helicopter's Aeronautical Accessories brand is now distributing Donaldson Inducer Vent Filters (IVF) for the Bell 407 and 407GX airframes. The filter helps prevent erosion of the engine impeller by drawing in contaminated air and providing 99 percent separation efficiency. This reduces the wear and tear on the compressor, leading to lower engine inspection and maintenance costs and extending time between overhauls.
The IVF, when installed with the Donaldson inlet barrier filter (IBF), provides complete engine inlet protection. IVF installation has been endorsed by Rolls-Royce, the engine manufacturer of the M250 engine powering the Bell 407 and Bell 407GX. The filter easily fits any combination of airframe inlet and engine cowl assemblies (aluminum and composite).
