This SAE Aerospace Resource Document (ARD) document covers the requirements for a self-propelled GRV, intended for use at airports to collect spent aircraft de-icing fluid (ADF) from the surface of de-icing areas. This unit will recover de-icing fluid from the surface, which will be stored in a containment unit on the vehicle. The GRV must be capable of night and day operations in all weather conditions, as required.
Rationale: The rationale for the development of this document, ?Glycol Recovery Vehicle (GRV) ? Self-Propelled?, is to standardize the requirements for the operation and performance of a GRV, including parameters such as safety, recovery performance and capacity.
