A healthy engine is a happy engine
Keep it that way with the patented Rochem® Jet Wash System.
All jet engines consume vast amounts of unfiltered air which, especially at low levels, can contain varying amounts of airborne oily vapors, sticky tree sap, unburned hydrocarbons, salt, and general atmospheric dirt, a portion of which sticks to and builds up over time on compressor vanes and blades. This reduces their operating efficiency, decreases engine mass flow, increases combustion and EGT temperatures, and subsequently increases fuel consumption.
Combustion and turbine sections of all jet engines can also suffer from so-called hot-end corrosion due to ingestion and gradual build-up of airborne salt and other corrosive elements. Hot-end corrosion is still one of the major causes of engine failure and very costly visits to the repair shop. Fouling of jet engines by the unfiltered air that they consume cannot be physically prevented, but it can be controlled and minimized by regular on-wing engine washing to maintain output and fuel efficiency and prevent hot-end corrosion. The Rochem® Jet-Wash System is designed specifically to keep a clean engine clean in the easiest and most cost effective way.
