ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- July 9, 2014

ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) is highlighting new vibration isolation and motion
control technologies for the aerospace industry at the 2014 Farnborough
International Air Show, July 14-20. In response to the growing need for
lighter weight, durable vibration isolation and motion control solutions, ITT
has launched two breakthrough technologies and has expanded the breadth of its
product portfolio to offer improved system reliability and efficiency.

ITT’s Selective Lift-Assist System lightens the amount of force needed to lift
large, drop-down stowage bins in modern aircraft, providing crew and
passengers with a safer, more comfortable flying experience, and enabling
manufacturers to create stow bins with increased luggage capacities. The new
system utilizes a selective spring actuator to reduce the force needed to lift
and close a fully loaded stow bin, and weight-compensating hydraulic rate
controls to precisely control the opening motion of the stow bin regardless of
the weight in the bin. Because the system is hydro-mechanical, the bin control
system does not require aircraft power to function, decreasing installation
time and increasing efficiency.

“Aerospace manufacturers are continually looking for new ways to improve the
flying experience, and we have both a rich legacy and a strong ongoing
pipeline of innovation and technologies to help them achieve their goals,”
said Munish Nanda, president of ITT’s Control Technologies business. “We offer
customers unique solutions to their most critical challenges, and they count
on us for our product and process expertise.”

For fuselage mounted equipment, ITT’s patented Strut Integrated Isolator
technology incorporates a fail-safe elastomeric cartridge directly in a strut,
eliminating the need for separate elastomeric mounts. The isolator cartridge
can be placed in each leg of a multi-leg assembly to easily control system
dynamics. This solution delivers on performance, simplicity and weight, while
giving OEMs the flexibility to reduce the maintenance needs of their equipment

At Farnborough, ITT is also highlighting several new expanded technologies
including laminate planar mounts that offer a high-load capacity in a small
package for vibration isolation on helicopter power transmissions and engine
mounts. ITT is also showcasing its latest innovations in temperature-tuned
elastomers, engineered to provide specific characteristics in aerospace

ITT components can be found on major aircraft platforms from the largest
commercial transports to business jets, helicopters and all manner of military
aircraft and land vehicles. A portion of ITT’s business is also focused on
supplying aftermarket services for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of
aircraft to meet the airlines’ critical needs of updating equipment and
keeping planes running safely and efficiently.
