Control FOD on runways with a magnetic sweeper.

Airport Foreign Object Debris or (FOD) is too costly to ignore.

Foreign Object Debris (FOD) and damage prevention is a major concern to military aviation. It costs the US navy almost $90 million a year. Military FOD can be either ferrous debris such as metal screws etc. or non-ferrous such as stones. Sometimes the act of removing dirt, snow or debris can itself cause a debris problem in the form of broken steel brush bristles.

For this reason the need for control of debris at military airports is high.

The damage, delays and disruptions caused by FOD justifies almost all efforts to reduce these negative consequences including sweeping with a magnetic sweeper as part of the FOD control efforts.

There is simply some debris that can only be picked up by a magnetic sweeper such as the steel bristles off of steel brush sweeping units used in other FOD control efforts or used in snow removal efforts.

How to control FOD

FOD comes in many forms and can be ferrous (nuts and bolts) and nonferrous (stones).

FOD control is normally attempted by sweeping with broom type brushes, magnetic sweepers, vacuum trucks, visual inspection as well as other methods. Some debris such as broken off wire bristles from sweeper trucks cannot be picked up easily by anything other than a magnetic sweeper.

Magnetic sweepers are just one tool used in the fight against FOD, but an important one and one that can be easily deployed, working silently while operations continue.

Types of Military FOD Magnets


Tow Behind Magnets

Tow behind magnets are hitched to a tow vehicle such as a truck only when needed and then put away again. Sweeping with these units is a distinct and separate activity undertaken in addition to other activities.


Hanging Magnets

Hanging magnets are hung from a wide range of vehicles or pieces of equipment on a permanent basis. Sweeping with these units takes place while other normal activities are carried out resulting in no additional labor costs for sweeping for FOD. Hanging magnets may be front, mid, or rear mounted.

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of Military FOD Magnets?

If you can attach a hanging magnet to a piece of equipment or vehicle already covering an area you need to sweep for some other purpose, this is the most cost effective solution because you won't incur extra labor costs.

For Fast, Aggressive Cleaning of Airport FOD

$7,299.99 USD$7,699.99 USDSelect options

(all prices in USD)

Available in 2 sizes: Piranha 96″, Piranha 120″

With Unique Slingjaw Clean Off System.

The Piranha magnetic sweeper is a tow behind model designed for fast, aggressive cleaning of airport FOD (foreign object debris). Unique Slingjaw clean off system dumps debris into on board debris trays and holds it for later disposal.

The Piranha was designed for cleaning large areas like airports and therefore was given some special features. First of all, lots of power, to allow greater speed while still picking up debris.

It was given an adjustable sweeping height from 2″ to 3″ inches since it was designed to travel on flat surfaces. It was also given on board debris bins since when cleaning large areas, you could be a long way from home when you need to clean off the magnet.

Available in a six foot (Piranha 96) or 8 foot (Piranha120) sweeping width. Extend the sweeping width to 24 feet by using the Multi–Hitch accessory to hitch three Piranha 120 units together.
