Moisture Problem for Jet Engine Storage


Jet Engines

Does your expensive Jet Engine get corroded while in storage?

Is the downtime, while replacing engines high?

How does Moisture play Havoc with your standby/under maintenance Jet Engines?

Almost all airline companies maintain/store Jet engines as standby for quick replacement. These Jet engines are very expensive and are usually needed in emergencies, in case of engine failure.

The Jet Engines are generally stored in a room in/near the hangars at Airports. While in storage, they are damaged due to corrosion. Ferrous materials like iron and steel corrode in presence of moisture. Electronic equipment and components also suffer from micro-corrosion.

Uncontrolled humidity in the storage rooms is the single major cause of corrosion

Corrosion does not occur in dry air. It is the invisible water vapour that is always present in the air, which causes corrosion of metal components and parts, in storage.

Water vapour condenses, on any surface, colder than the dew point temperature of the surrounding air mass. Also, sudden changes in temperature, within the room, affect the internal humidity environment and lead to condensation on any surface. This subsequently leads to corrosion.

Corrosion/Rust begins at 45 %

The critical humidity level which is at 45% is approximately the same for clean and polluted air, however, the rate of corrosion is faster where surfaces are exposed to polluted air in combination with high relative humidity.

Control Moisture levels in your Jet Engine Storage Area to avoid Corrosion

To prevent corrosion, the relative humidity of the air needs to be controlled to a level where it not only prevents condensation but is reduced to a critical level below which corrosion does not occur. As a general rule, rust and other oxidizing type corrosion reactions will not occur if the relative humidity in the area is maintained at or below 40% RH. Materials or product residing in this atmosphere need not be coated with oil or other surface protecting materials, and can thus be kept in ready-to-use condition

This significantly reduces the cost of painting and other maintenance normally required to control corrosion.

Most metal parts do not need to be stored in areas that need temperature control. Thus humidity control through desiccant dehumidification is a much more economical method than air conditioning.

Corrosion can be eliminated by controlling the moisture levels to less than 45% RH at ambient conditions in the storage area. Humidity control by dehumidifying such storage areas ensures that the engines in storage do not get corroded.

Create a Humidity controlled area in the Hangar, with the Bry-Air Enviroliner ....

… Safe, cost-effective, quickly assembled humidity control housing for safe storage of small equipment like engines, gearboxes, small arms, ammunition, optics, ration, documents, uniform, metal components, etc.

The Bry-Air Enviroliner is the ideal solution to humidity related storage problems. The Enviroliner is a custom-made, modular PVC storehouse, integrating a Bry-Air Dehumidifier which can convert any space in whole or in part, into cost-effective humidity controlled-storage area, without any special building requirement. All that is needed is a floor and a ceiling. Equipment and material stored in Enviroliner are protected against the damaging effects of moisture corrosion/rust, mold, fungus, etc.

Bry-Air Dehumidifiers can maintain RH as low as 1% or even lower at a constant level, regardless of ambient conditions during production, processing, storage, and packaging.

Bry-Air Dehumidifiers are CNC fabricated with powder-coated finish incorporating the high performance, metal silicate, fluted media.

Upgraded Manufacturing Processes

Bry-Air Dehumidifiers help reduce the relative humidity to the desired constant level, by removing moisture from the air, most effectively and economically. They can be successfully used, for a wide range of applications, in industrial manufacturing, processing, drying, storage, and packaging.
