Technical Requirements
The Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division, Lakehurst NJ (NAWCADLKE) requires a Small Corrosion Control Cart (SCCC) to be used ashore and afloat.

It is to be a trailer mounted, self-contained mobile unit which provides a convenient and safe method of applying filtered fresh water, ready-to-use solution of 4:1 water and cleaning solution. The pressurized solution is used to wash the compressor section of designated aircraft turbofan, turbojet, and turboshaft engines of rotary and fixed-wing aircraft for the purpose of preventing compressor corrosion and engine degradation.

The SCCC is to employ a single 75 gallon water tank and one 10 gallon tank of cleaning solution. The 75 gallon tank is equipped with an external fill/continuous feed inlet for replenishing the water tank during use. Application of a cleaning solution to the aircraft engine is accomplished by one of two methods. In the first method, plain water is drawn from the 75 gallon tank by means of a 0 - 8 GPM main pump and mixed with cleaning solution at a 4:1 ratio from the 10 gallon tank (if desired). In the second method, a premixed solution of water and solution (stored in the 10 gallon solution tank) can be selected. A separate solution pump is piggybacked to the main pump. Both pumps are driven by a single pump motor. The water/solution is then directed through a 10 micron water/solution filter to a single water/solution hose and reel. Plain water is drawn from the 75 gallon tank to rinse the aircraft solution residue.
