- Pipe and Tank Cleaner


A specialist descaler for use in aircraft toilet systems. Skykem Pipe and Tank Cleaner is specifically designed to descale aircraft toilet systems in order to prevent pipe blockages or sensor, valve or flap failure. Regular maintenance prevents toilet problems that can force crew to lock down toilets. It also helps the toilet system to flush better and perform perfectly to prevent foul odours.

Why is Skykem Pipe and Tank Cleaner needed
In constant daily use aircraft toilets collect solid and liquid wastes that naturally form lime scale and calcium deposits throughout the toilet system.

The build-up of scale prevents sensors from working properly and slowly blocks valves and pipe work. This immediately restricts the flow of water/waste and this causes bad toilet odours in the cubical and cabin.

If left untreated the scale build-up will eventually cause the system to fail in flight frustrating aircrew and passengers and resulting in costly maintenance work and aircraft down time.

Pipe and Tank Cleaner has been specially designed to deal with the build-up of scale deposits and helps maintain a fully functioning toilet system.
