An environmental control system and method are provided for conditioning water-vapor compressed air for supply as conditioned air. The environmental control system (8) includes two air cycle machines (9, 10) that rotate independent of each other. The air cycle machine (9) includes a turbine (11) that drives a fan (12), and the air cycle machine (10) includes a turbine (15) that drives a compressor (16). The environmental control system (8) further includes a primary heat exchanger (19) upstream of the compressor (16), a secondary heat exchanger (20) down...
[ What is claimed is:] [10.]10. A method for conditioning water vapor bearing compressed air for supply as conditioned air, comprising the steps of:using a first air cycle machine including a first turbine powering a fan;using a second air cycle machine including a second turbine powering a compressor;flowing said compressed air first through the compressor, second through the first turbine, and third through the second turbine in the absence of rotating engagement between said first and second air cycle machines.
