Bloodhound – Driven With Passion, Enhanced With ZOK

The Bloodhound Project is described by Richard Noble as “the engineering adventure for the 21st century…..pushing the limits and inspiring our young engineers and scientists with our incredible car capable of 1000mph”. Richard Noble is the project sponsor and holder of the land speed record between 1983 and 1997.

Andy Green the current holder of the land speed record since 1997 will be behind the wheel of the Bloodhound car, steering it to the supersonic speed of 1000mph at the record attempt to be made in 2013.

This very special car has three power plants propelling it past the speed of sound. Moving the car to 300mph before the rocket engine takes it to the 1000mph challenge, is a Roll-Royce EuroJet EJ200 Typhoon aircraft jet engine. ZOK cleaning solutions will be used to keep this engine performing to peak thrust in between each run at the 1000mph record attempt.

ZOK has been providing gas turbine compressor cleaners for almost 30 years and has a reputation for product excellence and total reliability. ZOK is very proud to be associated with this land speed record attempt and will be with the Bloodhound team all the way as they strive to reach this tremendous goal.

  • Aviation
    ZOK cleans gas turbine compressors in challenging and changeable environments – so it’s no wonder that the MOD and civil aviation companies from around the world have been using ZOK for over 35 years to keep their jet engines in peak condition.
    Air contaminated GT compressors reduce power, increase exhaust temperatures and consume more fuel – therefore, maintaining a clean engine will minimise fuel burn and ensure the maximum ROI via a very small outlay by washing with ZOK.
    All ZOK products are friendly to the operator and the environment.

  • Military
    Since the early eighties the MOD have relied on the cleaning power of ZOK to keep their rotary and fixed wing aircraft in peak condition. Not only does an efficient jet engine mean cost savings, but it can also mean extra power when most needed to save the aircraft and the crew in a combat condition.
    Jet engines can lose 10% or more of their efficiency if not kept clean.
    Washing with ZOK ensures maximum available power output, improved fuel efficiency and reduced wear and tear.

  • Oil & gas
    ZOK cleaning products are biodegradable and water-based. Specifically designed for use in ecologically sensitive environments, they are approved by all leading engine manufacturers.
    By avoiding the build-up of engine contamination you can boost performance, lower operating temperatures, reduce fuel consumption, minimise downtime and increase the life of an engine.
    Clean and efficient gas turbines help to ensure the safety and responsiveness valued by industrial operators.
    Custom washing schedules provide maximum ROI. ZOK provides exceptional cleaning without the health and environmental risks associated with solvent cleaners.
