The Cleaning equipment ADE
The equipment ADE is designed for quick and effective cleaning of large areas.
Cleaning equipment removes reliable mechanical impurities and dirt – soil, sand, construction material, loose asphalt pading of construction joint and other particles up to weight of few kilograms from all sort of braced areas.
The cleaning effect is achieved by contactless method with using of gas stream generated by jet engine. Any fixed part of cleaning equipment is not in contact with sleaning surface, therefore cleaning surface cannot be mechanically damaged.
The equipment ADE is designed for cleaning of large areas, primarily for airports runways (RWY) and taxiways (TWY). Using of equipment ADE solves prevention of protection against aircraft damage by foreign object (FOD).
The equipment ADE is possible to use advantageously for cleaning of heavy machinery mechanism.
Dynamic effect of gas stream streams off foreign objects outside of cleaning area.
Any thermical impact to cleaning surface is excluded under condition of keeping Operational Manual instruction. Relevant test have been carried out by three independent state Czech organizations
The device is formed by the basic carrying frame. It makes easy and quick mounting on standard suspension plate on the front part of carrying vehicle.The jet engine carrying construction makes possible its fluent turning in horizontal level – 120o into both sides from the carrying vehicle movement direction. The inclination of the engine can be changed from 15o down to 10o up from the horizontal position. These functions are controlled by hydraulic actuators connected with hydraulic systém of carrying vehicle.
On the carrying frame are placed all suportive agregates and devices necessary for cleaning equipment operation, i.e. engine start device, control of engine power, lighting of cleaning area, access point to internal or external electrical power unit with voltage 24V.
The control of device is concentrated in remote control box which is placed in the cabin of the vehicle and is done by one cable. The control device is simplified so that it could be operated by one worker without any special demand on his qualification. It si currently operated by vehicle driver.
Fuel tank of chosen volume (in accordance with expected continual run of engine) can be placed on the platform of carrying vehicle or on the trailer and is connected by fast connection with engine fuel installation. All connecting points are easy to be uncoupled.
Quick mounting on the suspension of the carrying vehicle, its dismounting and storage in the time when it is not ised is done with the help of supporting undercarriage, which is easy to install under the device.
Basic technical data:
|weight of the device
| 640 kg
|quantity of the gas during full power
| 14,5 kg/sec
|fuel consumption – average
| 650 l/hour
|velocity of the gas stream at RPM = 91%
| 420 m/s
|temperature of the gas stream at RPM = 91%
| 620°C max.
|Time of running engine
|any jet fuel including drained one
| depends on the characteristics of the carrying vehicle
ADE could be equipped in accordance with the wish of customer by automatic control of the treated surface temperature and an overheating of cleaned surface can be reported by warning signal. This can be interconnected with the control of the engine.
