Turbine Rinse & Airframe Wash Systems
There is a range of sizes to meet the needs of small operators to large service centers. The choice should be based on fleet size or, as the Coast Guard does, standardize a model across all bases so personnel are familiar with the equipment regardless of what location they are operating from.
Why High Purity Water for Your Operation?
Many helicopter and turbine manufacturers have strict specifications for the cleanliness of the water needed for turbine rinse water. Some operators have found, to their dismay, that the turbine warranty might be in jeopardy due to their rinsing procedures, poor water quality or lack of documentation.
High precision helicopter turbines are susceptible to damage by minuscule particulate accumulation or corrosion. Even an accumulation of minute amounts of ash can make a noticeable difference in horsepower. Salt residue can corrode and even ruin these expensive engines. According to manufacturer’s recommendations, high precision helicopter turbines should be flushed out with high purity water after each flight in order to protect the expensive engines from damage caused by particulates or corrosion.
Companies that don’t follow these recommendations risk down time, employee safety and potentially severe damage to their expensive helicopter engines. Engine manufacturers will deny warranty claims on ruined engines if the problem is found to be from insufficient cleaning based on manufacturer’s cleaning specs.
Common solutions include reverse osmosis, deionization, simple distillation or even outsourced bottled water. These solutions cannot offer the consistent level of purity that is needed to protect expensive high precision helicopter turbines.
Turbo Pure Water is a manufacturing company that provides specialized, ultra-pure water solutions for high precision helicopter turbine rinse water. In addition, Turbo Pure Water offers unmatched global support solutions.
Standardize Rinse Water Quality at Multiple Bases with Turbo Pure Water
The Turbo Pure Water Systems are designed to meet exacting standards at each of your locations. We all know the quality of water varies widely from location to location. Now it is possible to standardize rinse water purity from any tap water source.
Standardize Operator Training and Sampling Procedures
If you have multiple locations, our field experience would say that you are likely utilizing different equipment at each location, using different quality source water and getting rinse water of differing purity. The Turbo Pure Water Systems can eliminate variability.
Bio-Secure Drinking Water Option
With a simple modification, we can provide bio-secure drinking water too. You can fill your own bottles or you can network your drinking water to coolers and preferred locations in your hanger.
