EBACE: Jet Aviation Basel develops advanced aviation dishwasher for all aircraft types

Posted 19 May 2015 · Add Comment

Jet Aviation Basel has developed a cutting-edge plug and play in-flight dishwasher (ADW) with a three-minute wash cycle that requires just three litres of water.

The user-friendly ADW is compatible with an eco-friendly soap that can be used to clean silver and aluminum dishes. 

Available in different sizes to ensure the perfect fit for all galleys, including that of the B787, the ADW utilises a quick connection system and features a customisable front design. It is qualified for taxi, take-off and landing with up to 20kg of dishes stored inside the dishwasher. 

The dishwasher is designed with an integrated drip pan and other safety benefits such as shock and vibration absorption and decompression, reducing the need to install additional components or make galley adjustments. Depending on the size selected, the dishwasher weighs upwards of 60kg. 

“The ADW is a very robust dishwasher inspired by a model used in the ETA German railway cars that we developed in line with published EASA design and performance standards for aircraft galley equipment, as well as Airbus and Boeing specifications,” said Matthias Mueller, project manager for cabin modifications and upgrades at Jet Aviation Basel. “Traditional industrial dishwashers have a short wash cycle but tend to use chemicals that are too corrosive for use in aircraft. Our state-of-the-art ADW dishwasher is compatible with an eco-friendly soap that is gentle enough for the most delicate dishes.” 

Basel Maintenance Center vice president and general manager Johannes Turzer added: “We saw a way to improve life on board for our customers and wanted to be sure that they could benefit from our expertise. Basel’s ADW significantly reduces the number of dishes required on board, provides additional storage space and can even be used to heat up dishes before serving meals. And most importantly, it frees cabin attendants from sundry chores so they can spend more time focusing on the needs of their guests.” 

ADW dishwashers can be installed during scheduled maintenance or combined with other refurbishments, modifications or upgrades at Jet Aviation Basel.
