Pismorad is showcasing its SH 8000 solution for the removal or erasing of horizontal signalisation from asphalt and concrete. It features two cleaning heads of 35.5cm diameter with the intention of enabling simultaneous parallel erasing of duplicate lines.
The vacuum pump mechanically aims to remove the surface of asphalt to the depth that the colour has penetrated, through using paint removal and water as an erasing agent.
In addition, the product can be deployed to help improve the condition of runways by removing traces of markings left by tyre rubber and enhancing friction in hot climate areas where it is reduced from the fading of asphalt.
For climates with heavy snowfall, the cleaning is said to enable emergency aircraft to land quicker when required. The product can be shut down and removed from the runway in 45 seconds.
