A standard procedure as a part of routine aircraft maintenance, compressor washes are essential for their role in prolonging an engine’s life cycle as they are performed to ensure peak part efficiency is always achieved. To guarantee the removal of built-up contaminants along the compressor section of an engine which can lead to impacted performance and equipment failure, personnel should always perform compressor washes with part-specific Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) chemical solutions.
Aircraft communication systems allow pilots, air route traffic control centers, ground personnel, airports, and other entities to maintain a bridge of communication. This is especially critical during flight as aircraft communication systems aid in avoiding unprecedented accidents, turbulent weather, and more. With so many systems set in place, this blog will provide a brief overview of each aircraft communication system, their subsystems, and how they work.
The word “avionics” is simply a combination of two terms, namely aviation and electronics. These electronic systems are used on devices like aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft. Avionics includes hundreds of systems that are well fitted in the aircraft for better individual functioning. In addition, they also include navigation, communication, display, and management systems. Depending on the avionic device in question, such parts and controls can either be really easy to understand or can be complicated. The below-mentioned devices are essential instruments in an aircraft that enable the pilot to maintain spatial orientation during the flight.
In the simplest terms, altitude can be defined as the vertical distance between an object and a reference point. However, when it comes to aircraft, measuring altitude can be complicated. To better understand how aircraft efficiently measure altitude, we will discuss what instruments are used by pilots to gauge exactly how far they are from the ground.
Aircraft are complex vehicles consisting of a plethora of assemblies, systems, and components, and it is important that personnel, maintenance staff, and engineers have the ability to identify necessary information quickly and easily. With components known as aircraft data plates, labeling and identification is made easy for the means of enhancing risk management and the communication of vital information. In this blog, we will provide a brief overview of aircraft data plates, allowing you to better understand the various roles that they serve, as well as the many ways in which they are implemented.
A patch panel is a hardware device that features multiple ports that help organize cables, each port containing a wire that goes to a different location. They are available as compact units or large devices with hundreds of electric sockets. Additionally, they can be set up for fiber optic cables, cat5 cables, RJ45 cables, and various others. In this blog, we will be providing an overview of patch panels, how they work, and their uses.
Electrical bushings are hollow electrical insulators, providing a passage and barrier for a conductor. Their primary function is to transmit electrical power in or out of electrical apparatuses such as transformers, circuit breakers, shunt reactors, and power capacitors. The bushing conductor can be built into the apparatus, or as a separate component that may be drawn through the center of the bushing.
While conflated with the abilities of a power strip, surge protectors are electrical panels that offer more than just additional outlets. Surge protectors are an affordable way of protecting your electronic devices from unexpected power surges that can lead to irreversible electrical damage. In some cases, they may be called surge suppressors. This blog will cover how surge protectors work to guard your appliances and how to utilize them to mitigate the possibilities of a fire.
The engine oil filter of an aircraft or other vehicle type is paramount for standard operations, ensuring that contaminants and impurities are efficiently removed. Such materials can easily damage various internal equipment if left unchecked, thus necessitating the use of filters. Additionally, an oil filter also ensures that engine oil is kept within the correct area, furthering their benefits. As operations are carried out over time, the oil filter can slowly degrade or cause other issues as it continues to collect contaminants and impurities. To best protect such equipment, and thus your engine as well, it is important that the engine oil filter is regularly maintained and replaced.
A jaw coupling is a common industrial power transmission device, often found in many applications as a general, all-purpose component. Operating with ease across a wide range of temperatures, jaw couplings may handle angular misalignment, resist damage from chemicals, exhibit high damping and speed capabilities, and much more. To help you better understand the design and functionality of jaw couplings, we will provide a brief overview of such components and their variations.
