LONDON, UK – Recent testing by Donaldson Aerospace & Defense, a subsidiary of Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE: DCI), has demonstrated the ability of its Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) systems to prevent airborne salts from degrading the performance of helicopter turboshaft engines and increasing their maintenance costs.
Turboshaft engines on helicopters flying low or hovering over the ocean and coastal and inshore regions ingest airborne salts that combine with the heat of their turbine sections to corrode blades and other components and increase exhaust gas temperatures. Missions that expose engines to salt-laden air include firefighting, offshore transport, search and rescue operations, anti-submarine and port security patrols, and vertical replenishment work. Exposure to these environments increases the need for aggressive engine washing, reducing aircraft availability; it also drives up maintenance and overhaul costs of the aircraft.
