The importance of aircraft washing and rinsing has taken center stage in both military and commercial aviation as corrosion is now seen as a significant catalyst in airframe and component rework and failure.
According to the Air Force Corrosion Prevention and Control Office (AFCPCO), the USAF alone spends upwards of $2 billion annually on corrosion maintenance. Rinsing aircraft with clear water after a mission is one of the most effective methods for removing contaminates, salt, or sand that contribute to corrosion. Riveer has developed several low pressure, high volume systems for washing and clear water rinsing fixed wing and rotary aircraft of all configurations, giving flight line personnel, crew chiefs and maintenance departments the tools they need to combat this costly and highly damaging foe.
