Riveer's ARC is US Navy and US Army Approved for Fixed and Rotary Wing Aircraft

Aircraft Rinse Cart


  • US Navy and US Army approved for rising fixed and rotary wing aircraft
  • Safe-for-aircraft 175 PSI
  • Completely self-contained
  • Ideal for anti-corrosion PM of civil and military aircraft
  • Designed for flight light AGE towing
  • Dual wands for faster rinsing

Designed in conjunction with U.S. Navy for aircraft rinsing, the Riveer Aircraft Rinse Cart (ARC) meets with flying colors the criteria for dependable performance in brutal environments and remote airfield operations. ARC’s rugged design includes a pressure washer rated to perform aircraft rinses and meet the rinsing and pressure guidelines in TM 1-1500-344-23-2. With ARC’s track record, Riveer has won numerous competitive contracts for aircraft rinsing equipment from both the Army and Air Force.

The system sprays 12 gallons of water per minute out of each wash wand, applying a safe-for-aircraft 175 PSI. This helps meet the stringent TM requirements for aircraft rinse and decontamination procedures. The ARC is low-pressure enough to not damage equipment while at the same time being high-pressure enough to provide an effective stream for rinsing joints, hinges and other areas of entrapment.

ARC’s high flow rate cuts rinsing time dramatically by efficiently rinsing large areas. This efficiency is further supplemented by the use of dual guns for two users and 200′ of total reach. Simultaneous use of the dual guns does not negatively impact flow rates. In addition, the spray can easily extend 40′ for rising tail sections and larger aircraft.

Grip Start logoARC is simple to operate and maintain. The trailer-mounted unit is completely self-contained and stand-alone, and will operate in a broad range of environmental conditions (from 34F-140F). Little operator training is needed with our GripStartTM system; one button starts and stops the unit, and auto-start and shutdown technology automates the pumping cycle to ensure minimum pump wear and reduce generator demand. No calibration is needed for this technology.

ARC operates on JP-8, other common aircraft fuels or diesel. It can be supplied with on-board or external supplies of water for continuous use when a clean water supply is available. Water can be held in a 1000-gallon tank that allows for a lengthy run time when no water is nearby.

Another benefit of the system is its ability to be easily transported. It can be towed with HMMV, TUG, or other common AGE. It features a 6″ to 28″ tow bar height, surge brakes, stout and fully boxed trailer construction and a 7000# axle set rating. Baffles help to stabilize the tank by reducing the free-surface effect. ARC is transportable in accordance with MIL-STD-209, 1791, and 913.
