Aircraft Deicing Fluid Collection & Recycling

Inland Technologies International establishes airport environmental programs managing the collection and recycling of aircraft de-icing fluid. Inland offers cost-effective recovery and recycling of waste glycol collected from military and civilian airport de-icing and anti-icing operations. Inland has developed the patented Glycol Concentrator. This system separates water from deicing fluid chemicals to produce a reusable glycol product and clean water. The unit is compact, energy efficient, and can process very dilute effluent.Click e-inquiry and enter #63.

Deicing Training Simulators

gForce Technologies' Interactive Deicing Training Simulators emulate the function and feel of major manufacturers' deicing vehicles by using the vehicles' actual controls. Deicing operators and trainers both find simulators useful because they can practice with no risk of damage to equipment and aircraft. Multiple deicing training simulators can network together allowing several operators to practice deicing teamwork on a single aircraft and you can practice complex, multi-operator maneuvers. Turn 'down time' into training time, any time of year.Click e-inquiry and enter #64.

Cryotech NAAC®

Cryotech Deicing Technology manufactures acetate-based deicing alternatives to chloride-based deicers and urea. Cryotech NAAC® (solid anhydrous sodium acetate) meets current FAA specifications for airside use. NAAC® is ideal for use on runways, ramps, baggage cart areas, passenger traffic areas, etc. It is generally selected due to its low environmental impact and high performance, resulting from its exothermic reaction giving off heat when it melts. NAAC® has a low corrosion rate, is readily biodegradable and works to low temperatures—above zero degrees Fahrenheit. Cryotech is an ISO 9001:2000 and 14001:2004 certified company.Click e-inquiry and enter #66.

SENTRY Make-A-Berm Deicing Containment System

Millennium Enterprises, Inc. introduces the new SENTRY Make-A-Berm Deicing Containment System. Modified from our proven two-inch Make-A-Berm foam encapsulated soft wall system to a new higher three-inch wall, the system adheres to concrete or asphalt using our special adhesive and can be driven over by trucks, Tugs or aircraft without damage to equipment or the wall system. Once the deicing wastewater is contained, the optional vacuum/pump system extracts and pumps to holding tanks available for rent nationwide. Available in standard and custom sizes to meet your specific needs in both complete closed wall dike areas or simply runoff side containment configurations only.Click e-inquiry and enter #67.

Standby Compass Calibrator (SCC)

Firstmark Aerospace's Standby Compass Calibrator (SCC) eliminates the need for the physical rotation of an aircraft to perform calibration of the standby compass. By eliminating the need for conventional ground swinging, the standby compass is compensated more rapidly and inexpensively, saving hours of technician labor. Firstmark's SCC is listed on both the Boeing and Airbus recommended equipment lists. The SCC cancels the local effect of the Earth's magnetic field at the standby compass location and it adds a standard magnetic field which can be rotated to simulate aircraft heading, permitting compass error to be identified without physical rotation.Click e-inquiry and enter #68.
