PCA Pit for Airports and Aircraft Hangars



Based on the principle of the HPO (Hatch and Pop Out) pit, the PCA PIT places upon opening the PCA hose and its connector at operator’s handreach, for a simplified handling and an optimal protection of the hose.

The “Tulip” shaped guiding system also eases the use and increases the protection of the PCA hose
