Airport Runway Cleaner 1000®

ARC 1000 - Landebahn - Runway Solutions

The more movements (take-offs and landings) take place on a runway, the more rubber deposits (or carbon black deposits) remain on the surface.

These deposits lead to poor friction in the rain and thus increase the risk of aquaplaning extremely. This is to be prevented by an effective cleaning/rubber removal.

Various ARC models, with different processing widths and thus different performances per hour of operation, meet the demand of the rapidly growing market.

The ARC 1000® is a system in which ALL units are driven by the vehicle engine (at least 480 PS).
