Keeping Engines Clean
Lufthansa Technik is joining the “clean engine” service business with a Cyclean Engine Wash system. Airlines have water-washed their engines for years because it makes them use less fuel and burn cleaner. Lufthansa says regular Cyclean washing will cut kerosene and C02 emissions by 0.5-0.75%. Airlines commonly use high-pressure hoses to clean as best they can and usually open the cowlings or thrust reverser.
