On September 2019 DEVILS consortium achieved an important project milestone: Critical Design Review (CDR)
The Critical Design Review (CDR) for DEVILS project has been held on the 16th September 2019 in Protom facilities near Naples (Italy). During the Detailed Design phase, after the PDR, both the Designs of the Variable Oil Flow Pump, the ECU and the Heat Exchanger have been finalized and final 3D models and 2D drawings of all the items to be manufactured have been finalized and approved by the Topic Manager (Rolls Royce) at the CDR. During the Detailed Design Phase it has also been finalized the architecture of the final DEVILS project demonstrator.
The overall objective of project DEVILS Project is to develop an innovative variable flow rate oil pump to be integrated in a high performance aircraft lubrication system; the aim is to reduce both fuel and oil consumption.
