Turbine engine wash systems are an important component for maintenance of jet engines. Turbine engine wash systems involve high pressure and high temperatures to efficiently clean jet engines, removing contaminants such as dirt, salt, and grease build-up. Proper turbine engine cleaning is critical for engine performance. A reliable turbine engine wash is the single best investment for the care and maintenance of any new or existing jet engine.
Benefits of PowerAll Systems Travel Model Ground Power Unit (GPU)
1) One unique ability of the portable ground source turbine engine wash system is that it eliminates the need for large air tanks and makes the task of jet engine cleaning easy and efficient. PowerAll Systems travel model ground power units are designed to work on most aircraft sizes.
2) Turbine engine wash systems can also reduce the carbon monoxide levels in the engine compartment. This can reduce the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning and increase the overall safety of the aircraft.
3) Portable ground source turbine engine wash systems enhance the turbine performance by reducing the "blowing out" effect during cold start up, when hot and high compressed air created by the high pressure causes the flow reversal at the separator. This will allow the low pressure from the fuel to be directed into the fuel tank. Since most aircraft combustion is caused by heat, this will minimize fuel consumption and improve fuel economy. When combined with the efficient action of the pump, this will also facilitate reducing the fuel boiling off at high altitudes, improving cruise control, and increasing aircraft fuel efficiency. The increased aircraft thrust and improved aerodynamic properties will also reduce engine stall conditions.
4) Turbine engine wash systems also help to eliminate excess waste products such as oil, hydraulic fluid, and water. All these benefits lead to improved performance of the aircraft and better aircraft reliability, which will in turn translate to higher customer satisfaction.
To realize the full benefits of Turbine Engine Wash systems, it is important to use the right equipment for the job. For instance, the right equipment should be used when cleaning the power train, as well as the main bearings. It is also necessary to use the right pressure to ensure that the system can be set for high or low pressure. Another important factor is that the right turbine engine wash system should be selected based on the type of compressor being used. For instance, a high-pressure jetting system will need different pressure setting than a high static pressure system.
The importance of selecting the right Turbine Engine Wash system can hardly be overemphasized. The system has the potential to greatly enhance the power and efficiency of your aircraft. However, if not selected properly, the benefits of this innovative technology can be adversely affected. Therefore, you must choose the correct turbine engine wash system for the specific application to keep your aircraft at peak performance and prolong the life of your engine.
With the correct turbine engine wash system, you will find that not only will your aircraft power improve drastically but also you will not face any sort of power and efficiency issues associated with the use of old, outdated, high pressure gas turbine engine compressors.
Many airlines have already started using high pressure jetting systems as they are more cost effective than other power and performance-enhancing systems. This trend is not going to end soon, and more airline companies will be looking to replace their existing aircraft with modern high-speed turbine engine compressors.
