DESCRIPTION : Operators are reporting an increase number of removals for Environmental Control System (ECS) electrically actuated valves: By Pass Valves (BPV) and Trim Air Valves (TAV). This is also reported on the LR family aircraft for the TAV. For SA A/C family, the following PNs are affected: - BPV 1312A/B, 758A - TAV 1320A, 963A/B, 750A/B. For LR family A/C, the following PNs are affected: - TAV 1320A, 963A/B.

CONSEQUENCE : The valve failure can generate: - PACK REGUL FAULT ECAM Warning associated to Bypass valve fault message when BPV is faulty, - COND TRIM SYST FAULT Ecam Warning associated to Trim Air Valve failure message when TAV is faulty. Associated ECAM Warning generation leads to MEL application and corresponding valve de-activation INVESTIGATION STATUS : Investigations have revealed that the actuators PN 9069 were most of the time at the origin of the removals. A thermal analysis has been done to determine the impact of environmental temperature on motor operation and ageing behaviour. Based on these investigations, it has been identified that a temperature effect could affect the motor and thus causes the actuator failure. High temperature is at the origin of material degradation which...
