MTI Instruments Introduces PBS eXpress:
Portable Engine Balancing System for Business and Regional Jets
PBS eXpress marks an evolution in the company’s proven PBS-4100+ turbofan engine vibration and balancing technology; Lightweight, portable system optimizes and simplifies testing of small-frame turbofan and turboprop engines
MTI Instruments introduces the PBS eXpress aircraft engine vibration analysis and balancing system. The PBS eXpress is designed to optimize small-frame turbofan and turboprop engines, commonly utilized in regional jets, business jets, and general aviation. The PBS eXpress runs advanced algorithms to record vibration and speed and generate a one-shot balancing solution. The portable system features intuitive setup and operation as well as powerful visualization tools like vibration surveys, exportable data, and PDF reporting. Supported propulsion systems include the most popular small-frame engines and APUs from major OEMs such as Honeywell, Rolls-Royce, PWC, and Williams.
The PBS eXpress utilizes the same “DNA technology” as the company’s PBS-4100+ family – the most respected turbo-fan engine vibration and balancing solution on the market – to deliver this compact, feature-rich system.
Moshe Binyamin, President and CEO of MTI Instruments, said: “The PBS eXpress offers many of the advanced features found on more sophisticated engine balancing systems – but at a price point and form factor that is optimal for MRO organizations and operators who maintain and fly small-to-mid-sized corporate and regional jets.” He continued: “The PBS eXpress’s intuitive user interface enables first-time users to perform vibration analysis and engine rotor balancing, with minimal training.”
