PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. -- March 11, 2013

Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL), a global leader in filtration, separation and
purification, has signed a 30-year agreement with Brazilian aerospace
innovator Embraer S.A. to supply hydraulic filter manifolds and assemblies for
KC-390 aircraft. The Embraer KC-390 is a medium-size military jet under
development that relies on a sophisticated “fly-by-wire” (electronic) flight
control system. The Pall filter manifolds will purify the pressurized
hydraulic fluids that power the KC-390’s flight control systems, cargo door,
and landing gears against contamination, thereby enhancing aircraft
reliability. The first shipments are expected by the end of 2013.

Contaminants can be introduced into hydraulic system fluids from the
environment, during manufacturing and routine maintenance, and from component
wear. If this contamination is not removed it will recirculate, potentially
causing corrosion, fluid degradation, reduced system efficiency and,
eventually, failure of the associated components. Fine filtration and
purification remove minute particles and water to improve the service life,
reliability and performance of the hydraulic system components. To bolster
protection for the KC-390’s power systems, Pall is customizing hydraulic
manifolds and assemblies based on the latest filtration technology in
accordance with Embraer’s specifications.

Pall’s association with Embraer dates back to the 1970s and has evolved
through the years. “Pall is pleased to be teaming with Embraer on the KC-390
strategic alliance,” said Mark Morris, president, Pall Aeropower Corp. “We’re
looking forward to building on the current relationship and collaborating with
Embraer on future aircraft applications.”
