Jet Engine Cooling System
FCS Finland Oy is a company specialized in aircraft ground maintenance equipment. We started in 2017 with an idea of engine cooling. We believe that aircrafts are built to fly, and our mission to build equipment to minimize the downtime on ground.
Currently we offer a patented product, AFC-22, that is a professional cooling system for aircraft engines. We have developed the device in cooperation with Finnair. AFC-22 main unit is connected to the jet engine’s exhaust nozzle with a flexible hose that has a special made vacuum adapter. This causes ambient air to flow through the core engine. That will cool down the core engine in fraction of the time typically needed. Custom fit vacuum adapters are available for different engine models.
AFC-22 enables an efficient engine maintenance for our customers and minimizes the aircraft downtime. For example, RR Trent XWB normal cooling time is about 4-5 hours (depending on the ambient air temperature). By using AFC-22, it takes only about 45 min to reach 45 degrees C EGT. This will enable shorter waiting time for starting eg. borescope inspections or other hot section maintenance.
