The Universal Turbine Engine Wash Unit is used to clean both the hot and cold compressor sections of gas turbine engines, wash aircraft using the wand(s)/nozzle supplied and apply anti-icing fluid. This versatile turbine engine washing system is utilized for cleaning of turbine engines on virtually any turbine engine powered aircraft or vehicle. The turbine wash kit is currently used by the US Military on General Electric T-700 and T-701 engines used on UH-60, HH-60, AH-60, AH-64, AH1, UH-1 and all other variations of Blackhawk and Apache helicopters, TF34-100 engines used on A-10 fixed wing aircraft, T64 engines used on CH-53 helicopters (including the U.S. President's Marine 1 fleet) and the T53-L-13 Lycoming engine used on the UH-1 Huey helicopter, among others. This turbine engine washing system may be operated on 115 volt alternating current from 50 to 400 Hz. or 28 volt direct current, as required. Due to its light weight, compact size, quiet operation and ability to operate off of either a typical 115 volt power supply or the aircraft's AC or DC power supplies, this highly adaptable and lightweight turbine compressor wash unit can be taken "on the road" and is especially useful for those instances where complete independence from an outside power source is necessitated. At approximately half the cost and a quarter of the weight of comparable diesel driven systems, the Universal Turbine Engine Wash Unit is the perfect fit for today's cost conscious military/aerospace user.
