AirCleaning intakes for AeroEngines

AirCleaning intakes for AeroEngines SAND is very harmful to engines. During recent tests conducted by me in the North African Deserts, as much as half a pound of sand has been collected in ten minutes in each air intake of a Mosquito aircraft taxying, alone, downwind on a desert airfield. Had the Mosquito been following another aircraft, or had its air intake been situated lower, the quantity of sand would have been much larger. Under such conditions the importance of having efficient air cleaning intakes fitted to every aircraft engine is obvious. Sandy conditions are not confined to desert airfields, some airfields in this country and on the Continent are as bad. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

SAND is very harmful to engines. During recent tests conducted by me in the North African Deserts, as much as half a pound of sand has been collected in ten minutes in each air intake of a Mosquito aircraft taxying, alone, downwind on a desert airfield. Had the Mosquito been following another aircraft, or had its air intake been situated lower, the quantity of sand would have been much larger. Under such conditions the importance of having efficient air cleaning intakes fitted to every aircraft engine is obvious. Sandy conditions are not confined to desert airfields, some airfields in this country and on the Continent are as bad.
