This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) document covers the requirements for a Snowcompressor with carrier vehicle used to clear snow from airport operational areas by compressing the volume of collected snow into smaller volumes for loading into a hauling/dump truck or for depositing reduced-volume windrows for snow banking. The term carrier vehicle represents the various self-propelled prime movers that provide the power necessary to move snow and ice control equipment during winter operations. For two-stage rotary plows that primarily are used to cast heavy concentrations of snow away from airport operational areas such as runways and taxiways, see ARP5539.
The rationale for the development of this document, ”Snowcompressor With Carrier Vehicle”, is to standardize the requirements for operation and performance of a snowcompressor that is attached to a carrier vehicle that will compress snow to smaller volumes before tossing collected snow onto the airfield or into hauling/dump trucks.
