Jet Engine Overhaul:


Henkel produces all process chemistries for the overhaul of aircraft engines and land based compressors. Simplified processes meet OEM standard practices. Process solutions for both hot and cold sections. Designed to remove the toughest soils and scales, and provide for efficient NDT evaluation.

New "GL" (global) product line offers Henkel products and quality around the world.

Compressor wash products provide on-wing cleaning solutions for improved engine performance and reduced fuel consumption.

The overhaul maintenance cleaning of a jet engine and its components is scheduled to allow for inspection and preparation for additional work by removing the scale, soil and dirt build-up. Once an engine is dismantled to begin the inspection phase, chemical cleaning is recommended prior to NDT, which uses fluorescent penetrants to detect cracks and defects. Physical abrasion or shot blasting could potentially prevent detection by covering over areas of interest. Turco® specially formulated cleaning agents that work not only to ensure worry-free inspections, but also to restore engine appearance and efficiency with components that are free of build-up.
