Air Turbine Drives 

TP-25 
Fairchild Controls is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for the air turbine motor the TP-25, that drives a 20-kilovolt-ampere aircraft generator and 18 hp hydraulic pump for the Lockheed Martin C-130 aircraft production models A through early H’s. As the OEM of the TP-25, we have over 50 years of experience in repair and overhaul of the unit. We offer full service aftermarket support with fast turn-around times, exceptional quality, and value-adding reliability.

ADU 2000 
The ADU 2000 incorporates the most advanced design standards and concepts in air drive technology. It was specifically designed for the Boeing 767-400ER aircraft. Each of the six system sub-assemblies were all new designs, not derivatives of existing production hardware. The ADU 2000 is a high capacity (120 HP) turbine driven gearbox, and its associated control elements, used to power a hydraulic pump to meet aircraft peak hydraulic power demands. The system components consist of a modulating & shut off valve, turbine gearbox assembly, exhaust muffler, and electronic control card.

TP85-1 
The TP85 air turbine drive provides supplementary and emergency hydraulic power for the Boeing 747 aircraft. Fairchild Controls has produced the model TP25 for over twenty-five years. Over 4,500 TP85 air turbine drive units have provided supplementary hydraulic power for the Boeing 747 accumulating 125 million flight hours.
