Solid De-Icing /Anti-Icing Material Spreader For Airport Application
This ARP will cover requirements for a vehicle designed to apply solid de-icing or anti-icing materials on runways, taxiways, ramp and terminal areas and other paved surfaces on an airport. The term carrier vehicle represents the various self-propelled prime movers, generally a truck, that provide the power necessary to move the material spreader on these surfaces.. The airport sponsor requires this equipment in order to maintain the airfield during snow events. In combination with other supporting Snow Removal Equipment (SRE) the material spreader will enable the airport to modify the friction on surfaces used by aircraft prior to the accumulation of snow or ice, during or after a snow or ice event, or after the removal of snow or ice by other snow removal equipment. Material spreader vehicles are often equipped with a displacement plow to provide both plowing and material spreading functionality. Some units may be used for other service during the year such as applying material for spills or for use as a conventional dump truck or other truck applications.
This ARP is a continuation of the G-15 committee's primary mission of developing standards for airport snow and ice control equipment.
