Airplanes get extremely dirty in their day-to-day work, and cleaning your airplane is an essential part of aircraft maintenance. Like car and truck washes, washing an airplane takes huge amounts of water, both hot and cold. For an air force or hangar, having a more efficient boiler system can help decrease fuel utility costs by a large amount depending on your previous boiler efficiency. Since using hot water increases chemical reactions in certain cleaning fluid, it can also mean lowered costs for cleaning fluid.
When washing sensitive equipment such as stainless steel parts, it’s standard to use de-ionized water so that it dries spot-free. De-ionized water needs to be heated carefully, as it tends to cause pitting in weaker metal alloys. Our modulating stainless steel hot water boilers have 316/316L stainless steel heat exchangers, which deliver water at the same quality and content they received it. 316/316L stainless steel won’t be eaten away by de-ionized water, meaning your boiler can have a long lifetime of use with regular maintenance.
