Rochem Fyrewash F1
A HIGH PURITY SOLVENT & SURFACTANT FORMULATION FOR HEAVY DUTY ON & OFF-LINE COMPRESSOR CLEANING
FYREWASH®F1 is the successor to FYREWASH®SB, the first hydrocarbon solvent-based chemical ever to be created especially for on-line, fired wash cleaning of industrial, marine or aviation gas turbine compressor. Fyrewash®F1 still retains all the cleaning power of SB to deal with even the heaviest oil and carbon-based compressor fouling. However, new manufacturing processes make FYREWASH®F1 the purest, most user friendly, low metals product of its kind on the market.
Is normally performed by mixing one part FYREWASH®F1 concentrate with four (4) parts of water into a stable solution. Higher dilutions of up to 1:9 can be used when fouling is light and/orwhen on-line washing is performed frequently.
Distilled or demineralised water of 5ppm TDS or less is recommended.
The volume of chemical solution required per wash and the optimum cleaning frequency will depend upon engine size, fouling tendency etc. When using FYREWASH®injection systems please consult your Rochem manual. If using any other system please consult our technical staff for recommendations.
FYREWASH®F1 can be used with any on-line/off-line injection system but for optimum cleaning results and economic usage of chemicals, Rochem offers a full range of patented manual or fully automatic atomising injection systems to suit any engine type. The low cost Rochem Efficiency Plus (E+) on-line, realtime efficiency and performance monitoring system is also available for use with any type of gas turbine.
OFF-LINE, CRANK WASHING
Concentrated FYREWASH®F1 is normally mixed with four (4) parts of distilled or deionised water. The solution is normally injected at cranking speed, allowed to soak for about 20 to 60 minutes then thoroughly rinsed off at cranking speed.
For detailed off-line washing instructions, including volume of cleaning solution per wash and washing frequencies, please refer to your OEM manual.
When using a Rochem-supplied injection system refer to your Rochem manual. Please also note that Rochem has developed an optional (short cycle) crank-washing procedure which can minimise chemical usage and downtime while still giving excellent cleaning results. This procedure is based on the initial injection of the chemical in a concentrated form, instead of a large volume of water/chemical solution. Please contact your nearest Rochem office for full information on this or any other compressor cleaning procedure.
NEVER USE UNPROVEN CHEMICALS OR INJECTION SYSTEMS FOR COMPRESSOR CLEANING - ESPECIALLY FOR ON-LINE CLEANING!
