Runway safety

Yet another incident with passengers taking their bags during an evacuation. During the evacuation — as has become the appalling new normal in evacuations — passengers could be seen leaving the aircraft with their carry-ons. What makes this behavior so dangerous should hardly need explaining. In situation where seconds can mean the difference between life and death, luggage slows people down, impedes access to the aisles and exits, and turns the escape slides into a deadly slalom.

Runway safety

It is able to continuously remove rubber deposits whilst recovering all water and debris from the runway surface and can operate for over 4 hours on a single fill of water. The OSPREY removes rubber over a mm path at an optimum speed of linear metres per hour square metres per hour. Advances in our jet head, nozzle and control system design mean that these rates are increasing all Runway safety time.

This relatively slow forward speed ensures that the operator is able to maintain a minimal linear overlap. Some systems that move forward at a faster rate place huge strains on the operator trying to ensure that the overlap remains constant and that there are no areas missed. Another advantage of our optimum speed is the assured full recovery of debris and waste.

Runway safety

Effective removal is only the first stage of the process. The rubber must be collected to ensure that it is not re-deposited. Maximum Productive Time on the Runway Some airport operations dictate that there are only short windows of opportunity for rubber removal operations.

The rubber removal robot, which is mounted on the front of the vehicle, can quickly be lowered and put into operation within seconds. This feature ensures maximum productive time on the runway and the minimum amount of downtime for both the runway and your cleaning vehicles.

Zero Damage to the Runway Surface Utilizing only high-pressure water the OSPREY system does not require the addition of environmentally hazardous chemicals or expensive and damaging wire brushes. The computer control system ensures that the rubber removal head is in constant motion over the runway surface and as a result there is zero damage to the runway surface.

The nozzles are arranged so as not to produce aggressive shadowing in the centre. This combination of technologies allows OSPREY to offer you exceptional cleaning at a low price and without any danger of environmental damage or costly runway resurfacing.The People You Know.
