Borescope Guide Tube for Pratt & Whitney Engine PW530A
The PW500 turbofan engine family is the engine of choice for light to mid-size business jet platforms in the highly demanding fractional jet ownership market thanks to its outstanding reliability, durability, and operating economics.
The new generation PW 530A/535A engines have their roots in the PW JT15D. Two special features set this engine series apart. The first is the use of an integrated blade rotor (IBR) design. The first stage rotor is milled from a solid block of titanium alloy. The second feature, the Axiam Inc. method, is the high precision, computerized stacking and balancing of the compressor and turbine rotating components.
The PW500 family is comprised of 3 engine series and 8 models, ranging from 2,900 to 4,500 pounds thrust. Success of the PW500 in the fractional ownership and general business jet markets stems from its impressive durability, with overhaul intervals that have escalated beyond 10,000 hours, together with an impressive reliability track record.
The main engine application is the Cessna Citation Bravo.
