RLD Runway Light De-Icer

Concept

  • The Runway Light De-Icer was developed to de-ice runway lighting. The targeted 
    and  compressed application of de-icing agents prevents the dangerous formation of ice rings around the runway lights and thus prevents damage to aircraft.

  • At the same time, de-icing agent consumption is greatly reduced due to the short-term and selective application of the de-icing agent. A sensor bar on the front of the vehicle automatically positions itself above the surface to be de-iced when the device is activated. On the go, the runway lights are detected by a specially developed sensor bar while the signal is transmitted to the spray system at the rear of the vehicle.

  • Depending on the driving speed, de-icing agents are the applied by a 1.5 m wide spray jet only to the area of the runway lights. If required, an additional spraying cyle can also be initiated using the manual spray button.

We serve the right to effect changes according to the progress of technology.
