Compared to traditional de-icing methods, there is a minimal amount of equipment movement needed around the aircraft. De-icing and anti-icing processes are fully compliant with industry regulations. Final aircraft inspection takes place in a covered well lit environment. Our data recording system provides thorough records for de-icing and washing processes, which can be directly provided to the customer for their quality information systems.
Today´s methods for de-icing and washing of aircraft are time-consuming, and sometimes hard to predict.
With the MSG system, a de-icing process is completed in just a few minutes, regardless of weather conditions. This gives the airlines, airport authorities and ultimately, the passengers, improved predictability in departure times.
The MSG system offers a gentler cleaning process than traditional methods, resulting in less wear to the aircraft paint and a reduction in the need for expensive repainting downtime. A complete exterior wash of an aircraft is performed in approximately 20 minutes, depending on the aircraft model. Easier access and higher throughput allows the airlines to increase their washing frequencies. Flying clean airplanes reduces overall drag, which in turn reduces fuel consumption. The aircraft also looks better!
With the MSG system, all de-icing and washing is done in a covered facility, with closed loop systems significantly reducing the possibility of discharges into the surrounding environment. The majority of all spent fluids are collected and available for a variety of recycling options.
Airlines are well aware of the fact that clean aircraft use less fuel. The speed and easy access using the MSG washing system will allow airlines to increase washing frequencies of their aircraft. In addition to substantial cost savings, the MSG system helps the aviation industry with its goal of continuing to reduce its environmental footprint.
