The AF1 cold air blower system has proven to be an effective snow and FODs fighting equipment, significantly reducing runway occupancy time and maintenance operation costs. With its 860 km/h (535 mph) wind velocity and 9.21 m3/s (19,500 cfm) airflow, AF1 EVO removes fresh and packed snow around runway lights and airfield signs in seconds. It’s an effective piece of equipment to clear away snow and ice from runways, taxiways, aprons and thus cutting down on broom usage. In addition, the system efficiently maintains pavement surfaces and significantly reduces aircraft engine foreign object damages by blowing away dust and various FODs such as rocks, debris, shells, crack filling compounds, plastic and metal components.
