Rubber Removal | Re-texturing
The main reason for friction loos on touchdown zones of runways is vulcanized rubber deposits from turbojets landing. Due to recommendations of official organizations like ICAO, all runways with 15 daily landing and more, must have a plan to remove the rubber from the touchdown zone to keep it away from getting slipping.
OPAL’s durable, specialized equipment, skilled staff make us the pioneer contractor in the region. We are offering a satisfying service by:
the highest production rate per hour
High rate for removal
Lowest effect on pavement structure
No debris leaving on runway
Integrated equipment with less staff
Capability to immediate clearance of airfield with no debris
environmentally sound practices
We build our equipment by ourselves. It makes us the most matching service contractor in a specific market region.
Friction maintenance program schedule based on level of turbo-jet aeroplane operations for each runway end
|Daily turbo-jet aeroplane landings for runway end [H]||Annual aeroplane mass for runway end (million kg) [K]||Minimum friction survey frequency [M]||Minimum rubber removal frequency [N]|
|Less than 15||Less than 447||Once per year||Once every 2 years||16 to 30||448 to 838||Once every 6 months||Once every year||31 to 90||839 to 2404||Once every 3 months||Once every 6 months||91 to 150||2405 to 3969||Once every month||Once every 4 months||151 to 210||3970 to 5535||Once every 2 weeks||Once every 3 months||Greater than 210||Greater than 5535||Once every week||Once every 2 months|
1. Airports that exceed 31daily turbo-jet aeroplane landings are more critical with respect to friction deterioration caused by rubber accumulation due to increased aeroplane activity.
2. In addition to daily turbo-jet aeroplane landings for runway ends, other factors should be considered by the airport operator when determining rubber removal, such as the type and age of pavement, annual climate conditions, time of year, number of wide-body aeroplanes that operate on the runways, and length of runways.
3. Reference columns [H] and [K]: After calculating [H] and [K], the airport operator should select the column which has the higher value and then select the appropriate values in columns [M] and [N].
