This session presents the technical and fiscal benefits of frequent rinsing and washing of the gas path components of a turbine engine. We will begin with a short explanation of the properties of water, including the various processes used to clean and purify water. We will review turboshaft operational theory, followed by an exploration of the safety and financial benefits of using ultrapure, distilled water for the removal of airborne contaminates ingested during operation into a turbine engine. The assertions about the safety and financial benefits are supported by a testimonial video, which is part of the presentation.
