TURBO-K® is specially designed for on-line (hot wash) and off-line (cold wash) cleaning of gas turbine compressors. On-line cleaning of gas turbine compressors is known to provide the most effective method for preventing gas turbine fouling. It ensures maximum available power output, better fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear on machine components such as bearings and blades. The period between necessary gas turbine shut-downs for off-line washing (crank-wash) is significantly extended, thus reducing costly downtime and production losses.
TURBO-K® is non-hazardous, water-based, noncorrosive, non-toxic, non-flammable and biodegradable Gas Turbine Compressor cleaner with no Alkyl Phenol Ethoxylates (a-p-e), Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylates (n-p-e) and other ingredients with aquatic toxicity in its formulation. The products have the highest rating by both CEFAS & OSPAR.
TURBO-K® is based upon a complex formulation relying on a property called synergism that improves detergency. Its formulation does not just rely on simple non-ionic surfactants for its cleaning. Thus it has no “cloud point temperature” for exceptional dirt suspension abilities so that all fouling is carried into the combustion chamber during on-line cleaning. This results in extremely high cleaning performance that other gas turbine compressor cleaners cannot match.
TURBO-K® has been used worldwide on all types of gas turbines. Independent and unsolicited testimonials avow to the utmost superiority of Turbo-K product when cleaning gas turbine compressors. Product conforms to US-MIL-PRF-85704C specification for Type II (Off-Line) and Type III (On-Line) aqueous cleaner concentrate.
TURBO-K® has inherent corrosion inhibiting properties that are compatible with aluminum, magnesium, nickel-cadmium, stainless steel, and titanium to further protect the compressor against possible corrosion.
TURBO-K® has been approved by the major gas turbine manufacturers such as GE (General Electric), Alsthom Power, Centrax, Dresser Rand, GHH Borsig / MAN, Pratt & Whitney, RR (Rolls Royce), Siemens, Solar Turbines, etc.
TURBO-K® is supplied as an industry standard 1:4 concentrate and a Ready-To-Use (RTU). A super concentrated 1:19 is also available.
