I have a question about hooking up the ECS hose. I'm nothing but a lowly BB stacker, and up until a few weeks ago have frequently used the ECS hose right off the -60 for cooling during checks. Now there is a local policy that all our ops checks need to be done with the c-10 conditioner. It's not like it's a problem, I'm just curious as to why. I've been given nothing but vague reasons that using an ECS hose will 'burn up turbines' or that you can 'vent fuel' if you put air through the ECS hose without power. I haven't ever experienced a problem with using a hose right of the -60 and was wondering if the elite here can give a good explanation of the difference between what goes on inside the jet with an ECS hose and a C-10.
