Service history has shown that these spills can have detrimental effects on plane EWIS and have resulted in smoke and fire events. When this sort of contamination is found all affected components in the EWIS should be completely cleaned, inspected and repaired or changed if necessary. The supply of the spill or leakage should be located and corrected. Most operator maintenance programmes haven’t included duties directed towards removing or prevention of great accumulations of combustible materials on or adjacent to wiring.
