The Federal Aviation Administration handles more than 16 million flights a year. It takes quite a fleet of aircraft to reach that number, and that fleet requires a lot of maintenance and storage. When airplanes, jets, and other aircraft are put into storage, they are subject to conditions that are ideal for condensation and increased humidity in the fuselage. Polygon offers engineered temporary climate control solutions that can keep humidity levels in check.
Why is it so important to limit moisture in and around stored aircraft? Condensation can be costly and dangerous no matter where in the aircraft it occurs. At the very least, it will result in an expensive cleaning process before the aircraft goes back into operation. A worst-case scenario involves corrosion in the flight controls, engines, auxiliary power unit (APU), and onboard equipment resulting in very costly replacements and repairs.
Polygon can supply airlines, aircraft manufacturers, maintenance centers, and industrial storage facilities with a combination of climate control and dehumidification equipment with remote monitoring technology. More importantly, we offer the expertise to utilize this equipment to make sure planes, jets, and other aircraft come out of storage in ideal conditions. Some of the benefits of our temporary solutions for controlling climate during aircraft storage include:
- Prevention of mold growth and corrosion in the engines, fuselage, interior finishes, and APU
- Decreased cleaning costs for aircraft coming out of storage
- Peace of mind with remote monitoring and climate reporting
- A more efficient storage process, both in turnaround time and dollars spent
