Role of Pressure Washer Equipment in Aviation Maintenance

Pressure washer equipment plays a big role in the fleet maintenance of aviation companies. Lack of cleanliness can affect both the safety of the aircraft and the image of the company. Sometimes minor problems may turn into issues that are more serious. For this reason, it is important to select the best pressure washer equipment for cleaning aircrafts.

The following are some tips on choosing pressure washer equipment for maintenance of airplane fleets.

Know the Machine

Pressure washers are extremely powerful machines. Top quality, heated pressure washer equipment can provide output pressure levels up to 3500 psi. These machines pair high hot water and steam temperatures with high pressure levels to provide maximum cleaning power for aviation applications.

It is also better to choose machines specifically made for aircraft maintenance. Daimer®, a leading supplier of cleaning equipment, offers the Super Max™ 12885 JF pressure washer specifically made for the aviation industry. In addition to pressure levels of 3500 psi, flow rates of 5 GPM, and temperature levels up to 226°F, the 12885 JF is both powered and heated by JP5 or JP8 jet fuel, making this machine the best pressure washer equipment for the aviation industry.

Use Carefully

Cleaning workers must take precautions when using these machines. The extreme pressure levels of these machines may damage the aircraft or operator if not used correctly. In addition, soft interior surfaces of the aircraft, such as seat upholstery, should not be exposed to the output. For such applications, use of an XTreme Power® carpet cleaner is advised.
