Turbo-K is specially designed for on-line (hot wash) and off-line (cold wash) cleaning of gas turbine compressors.
On-line cleaning of gas turbine compressors is known to provide the most effective method for preventing gas turbine fouling. It ensures maximum available power output, better fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear on machine components such as bearings and blades.
Significantly extending the period between necessary gas turbine shut-downs for off-line washing (crank-wash) and thus reducing costly downtime and production losses.
On-line cleaning of gas turbine compressors will maximise available gas turbine power output, save fuel and extend turbine life that leads to a better profitability.
- Non-hazardous, water-based, non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-flammable and biodegradable with no Alkyl Phenol Ethoxylates (a-p-e), Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylates (n-p-e) and other ingredients with aquatic toxicity in its formulation
- Proven outstanding performance in on-line washing as product has no cloud point temperature and thus exceptional dirt suspension abilities so that all fouling is carried into the combustion chamber to be expelled
- Has inherent corrosion inhibiting properties to further protect the compressor against possible corrosion
- Has been approved by all leading gas turbine manufacturers such as Rolls Royce, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney, etc.
Online/Hot Wash – Turbo-K is injected into the compressor via spray ring or lance while the gas turbine is operating.
Offline/Crank Wash – is performed while the gas turbine is in a cooled state utilising cranking speed
Description: A concentrated neutral water-based detergent cleaning fluid for cleaning and corrosion inhibiting of gas turbine compressors
Dilution: For on-line cleaning dilute 1:4 (1 part of Turbo-K and 4 parts of demineralised water) before use. Potable water may be used for off-line / Crank Wash.
Composition: Blended triple-active formula of cationic, nonionic and amphoteric surfactants, corrosion inhibitors, organic solvents and demineralised water.
Appearance: Brown coloured liquid.
Solubility: Completely soluble in water. No agitation is required
Compatibility: Not corrosive or detrimental to any of the materials normally used in gas turbine compressors or aircraft structures
Turbo-K contains only fully biodegradable components & contains no substances that could degrade or cause damage to the environment
