Lufthansa Technik has developed Cyclean Engine Wash, a method for washing engines quickly and effectively while enhancing engine efficiency and benefiting the environment through lower CO2 emissions. Regular washing with Cyclean Engine Wash ensures that the engine's high-pressure compressor works more cleanly and efficiently so the operating temperature on average is lower than on an engine with substantial fouling deposits. Thanks to the improved performance, maintenance costs can be cut throughout the entire life cycle of an engine. On the basis of typical flight data, Cyclean can bring airlines savings of between $18,000 and $180,000 per aircraft (depending on aircraft and engine type). Unlike conventional methods, with a Cyclean Engine Wash the interval between washes is tailored to the aircraft to bring the maximum benefit. The engines cleaned regularly with Cyclean consume less kerosene and, depending on type, their CO2 emissions are be-tween 0.5 and 0.75 percent lower. Cyclean is available for every engine type in the Lufthansa Technik portfolio and is offered by the company's Airline Support Teams worldwide. These engine washes are not just available at Lufthansa Technik stations but can also be performed directly in the field. For more information visit www.lufthansa-technik.com.
