Home of the Reach & Wash® System.



Since 1997 we have manufactured high-quality water treatment filtration systems for a wide variety of applications. Our unified and modular approach to filtration gives unprecedented flexibility and interconnectivity. The result is an equipment range that has a vast array of applications in the aviation sector.

From concept to delivery; our focus on ‘Quality without Compromise’ is the reason that Ionic is now a trusted global brand that exports to over a hundred countries and territories worldwide.

Task 75 and the telescopic water-fed pole kit give the ability to clean aircraft windscreens from the ground without the use of Elevated Work platforms and stands.

This means:

  • Reduced risk of damage to the aircraft skin, pitot probes, and AOA (Angle of attaching vanes).
  • Reduced injury risk to maintenance staff. Cleaning from the safety of the ground means the removal of the risks associated with hanging out cockpit sliding windows, falling from a height, and body trauma to individuals in tightly confined spaces.
  • No need to distract the flight crew when doing their pre-flight cockpit checks.
  • Reduced risk to staff from manual handling of large portable stands.
  • Hot water options for removing contaminants i.e. kerosine & pollutant film from the glass with ease.
  • Work up to 150 meters from the system.


From Static and Vehicle Mounted systems to Portable water filtration equipment, we can provide a filtration system to cater for your local environmental water conditions, providing water for your engine compressor wash rigs.

Our ‘Zero’ Thermopure will provide continuous hot/warm water with a two-position selection switch, allowing you to produce hot or warm water for compressor washing on demand.

Regular engine compressor washing or scheduled through “trend monitoring” gives the aircraft operator and owners the advantages of:

  • Preventing the loss of engine performance.
  • Reduced maintenance costs.
  • Increased engine life.
  • Savings in fuel costs.

Our systems can be used to supply water from a static set-up, or portable or van-mounted on-site equipment. The water-fed poles can be used to keep operators’ feet firmly and safely on the ground.

  • Reduced need for elevated work platforms and stands.
  • Reduced EWP usage lowers the risk of impact damage.
  • A dirt/dust-free fuselage has bottom-line effects on aircraft fuel performance and costs.
  • A clean aircraft will allow maintenance staff to carry out more thorough inspections.
  • A clean aircraft gives your customers, internal and external, a good and professional impression.
  • Water-fed poles in conjunction with a pump application can be used to apply approved chemicals directly to areas that need degreasing and heavy oil breakdown. This reduces exposure to operators from chemicals when sprayed or misted.
  • Mobile units (Van mounted) will allow operators to clean aircraft in remote locations.
  • Reduce salt deposits, aiding corrosion prevention.


Our portable, static and vehicle-mounted systems allow users to produce pure water for direct use on-site and clean from the safety of the ground. We can provide equipment to clean all applications Airside.

In many situations, Airside require water treatment to be on hand, and for those situations, Ionic Airside Cleaning systems are the ideal choice. Our systems can produce thousands of litres of quality pure water daily up to 18 megohms (0ppb). Our equipment is compact and mobile and can be taken almost anywhere.

At Ionic, we’ve been manufacturing specialist water-treatment solutions for over two decades, so no matter what your application is, we can supply a machine that will fit the bill!
