Aircraft rinse facilities are presently employed to remove corrosive salt deposits from aircraft operating in salt laden environments. While water rinsing has been effective in reducing corrosion, the rate of attack can be further reduced by introducing a small amount of corrosion inhibitor, such as potassium dichromate, into the rinse water. The report presents a preliminary design and cost study for such a recirculating chromate rinse system.
