For military applications
This rig has been developed as a military variation of our popular 2x25 gallon compressor washing rig (JMP/CFM56/D/4777/C200) and is capable of washing all commercial engines - from the world’s largest, the GE90-115B, down to the CF34-8C
Powered by four rechargeable nitrogen cylinders, maximum charge pressure 2500 PSI (172.4 bar). A MS28889-2 Schrader charging valve is fitted for in-situ recharging from larger cylinders. There is also an Inlet Kit fitted to enable the connection of offboard compressed air or nitrogen if required.
Two 25 gallon (115 ltr) stainless steel tanks are fitted to the rig. One can be used for a washing solution and the other for water, or both can be used for water.
6kW immersion heaters are fitted in each tank, and when connected to standard aircraft ground power (115/200v, 3 phase, 400Hz), they will heat the washing solution up to 70ºC in 1 hour. Once the temperature is reached the electrical lead is disconnected from the supply and stowed on the rig, making the rig completely self-contained.
The universal rig (JMP/HER/D/1144/C600) will be capable of hot water washing the engines of the following aircraft types when fitted with the probes and spray rings as detailed. The re-designed configuration will also allow detergent washing to be performed should the necessity arise.
