A new white paper published by baggage handling specialists, Crisplant, assesses the impact of upgrading existing ECAC2-compliant screening systems to the new European Civil Aviation Conference Standard 3 (ECAC3) regulations.
Christoph Oftring, airport sales at Crisplant and author of the paper, said, “ECAC3 can be an opportunity to make significant improvements in the performance and efficiency of the baggage screening process.”
The white paper offers practical advice on key factors which will enable airport operations executives and airport design consultants to make informed decisions early in the upgrade process.
Starting with a description of the typical four or five-stage ECAC2 screening process, the paper compares it to the three-stage ECAC3 process and discusses its impact on system design, capacity, redundancy and layout. It also assesses different levels of compliance and implementation in addition to CAPEX and OPEX.
Klaus Schäfer, managing director for Crisplant, said, “Crisplant has over 35 years of experience in developing and introducing state-of-the-art baggage handling systems (BHS) to the market. This experience has given us unique insights into the efficient integration of new technologies into existing systems.”
