TACTICAL RINSE SYSTEM

Modular Clear Water Rinse Systems For Taxi-Through Aircraft

tactical-rinse-system-riveer-trs

The Riveer Tactical Rinse System (TRS) is an automatic clear water rinse system for aircraft of virtually every configuration and complexity. Fully deployable, the TRS is installed above ground, eliminating the time and expense of infrastructure modification and associated site engineering/environmental considerations. The modular configuration consists of steel pad sections forming the wash rack and complete rinse/wash and filtration system housed in special ISO containers. All that is required is electrical power.

Anti-Corrosion

FIGHT THE BATTLE OF AIRCRAFT CORROSION
The TRS helps mitigate the skyrocketing cost of airframes corrosion maintenance, delivering cost savings by eliminating ground crew man hours required for less-effective manual rinses, while at the same time recycling up to 80% of the water. Positioning TRS on a taxiway or flight line ramp allows inline rinses immediately upon aircraft recovery. Rinse cycle times can be adjusted to accommodate water spray lasting from 30 seconds to 2 minutes, allowing for customization to environmental and mission conditions.

AUTOMATIC, DEEP REACH RINSING DURING TAXI-THROUGH

TRS is automatic. Onboard PAR (Pilot Activated Rinse) technology allows the pilot to activate precision spray nozzles from the cockpit when taxiing onto the rinse pad. The TRS cycle completes a thorough rinse of dust, salt and corrosive deposits, then reclaims the wash water, filters and reuses it. Foaming and washing features can be added to TRS system.

Tactical Deployment, Commercial Applications

The TRS is configured to accept specific aircraft and can be reconfigured to accept new models, including requirements for flow, reclamation, filtration and wash water discharge, if any. As a self-contained, above grade system, the TRS meets the need for rapid global deployment and for semi-permanent installations on taxiways and tarmacs. The TRS is cost-effective. The system is often assigned at the unit level, for regiments, air groups and squadrons operating near coastal areas or whose exercises take aircraft through salt air or other corrosive environments.

Best practices require aircraft stationed near salt water shall be clear water-rinsed at least once every 15 days. Furthermore, all aircraft flown at low level (under 3000 ft.) over salt water require daily rinsing.

Field-Proven Engineering

  • Fast deployment for virtually immediate operation
  • Cockpit activated PAR (Pilot Activated Rinse) allows pilot to select
    and activate airframe-specific rinse pattern via mic clicks.
  • Sprays 800 to 3,000 GPM at a safe-for-aircraft pressures, under 60 PSI for undercarriage and 175 for flight surfaces.
  • Automatic operation, no ground crew required, adjusts to type of aircraft and weather conditions
  • Utilizes multiple corner-mounted, automatic, oscillating, high-flow monitors with patented spray and flow trajectories and multiple lower deck nozzles ensure a thorough and efficient rinse of all surfaces.
  • Quick Rinse Cycle
  • Standard footprint for rotary wing or F/A aircraft is 60'L x 80'W x 6'H,
    with larger pads available
  • Patented FOD-proof (Foreign Object Debris) nozzles offer pattern and flow adjustment capabilities.
  • TRS patented technology also adjusts spray patterns and flow based on current weather conditions

Water Filtration & Recycling Features

  • TRS utilizes the RTSTM high-flow water filtration and recycling unit
  • Water utilized to rinse the aircraft is reclaimed and monitored for Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • When water TDS reaches a prescribed limit, it’s discharged into a waste tank
  • Recycling saves roughly 520 gallons per minute or 1,500,000 gallons of water per year (based on 12 aircraft per day 250 days a year).
