Magnetic Sweepers

Bluestreak Equipment Seeker FOD Management System for Civilian & Military Applications.

Bluestreak Equipment has always offered premier FOD control magnetic sweepers for the civilian and military market with more magnetic power and features than any competitors. There is now a new industry leading magnetic sweeper to keep ferrous FOD under control throughout Airfields and Aprons. The Seeker Airmag magnetic sweeper has twice the magnetic power of the previous industry leading FOD magnet, the Piranha magnetic sweeper. Included with every Seeker Airmag trailer has a Powerstik Pro Elite and on-board FOD containment for easy clean up after sweeping. Three Seeker Airmags can be linked together to get a 15-foot sweeping width for more coverage that is capable of high-speed runway sweeping.

For Fast, Aggressive Cleaning of Airfield FOD. With Unique Slingjaw Clean Off System.

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

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 or 8 foot sweeping width. Extend the sweeping width to 24 feet by using the Multi–Hitch accessory to hitch three Piranha 120 units together.

Built to Control Metal FOD at Airfields and On Aprons

international airports in Ontario. The London International and Toronto Pearson International Airport gave input on features they needed for effective FOD control at their facilities. With these inputs in mind, Bluestreak Equipment built the new industry leader in metal FOD control.

 

A massive 12” x 3” x 60” inch alternating pole C8 ceramic magnet has twice the magnetic power of the Piranha magnet assembly and more surface area to hold onto collected debris so clean-off doesn’t have to happen as often. Clean off is accomplished by a counterweighted lever that needs to be manually pushed down to swing the magnet housing up and away from the stainless-steel debris pan to release the collected debris. From there debris can be collected using included Powerstik Pro Elite magnets and dropped into onboard FOD containment buckets.

 

The Seeker Airmag is built to pick up metal debris from runways at speeds up to 25km/h or 15mph but is stable at higher speeds so the magnet can get off the runway quickly if needed, and can cover ground around maintenance areas and the apron faster.

Maximize Safety and Speed with the new industry standard for heavy truck magnetic sweeping

 

The Baffin magnetic sweeper is designed to be the premier front mounted heavy commercial truck magnet on the market. It’s suspension system keeps the magnet planted at the right height through hard turns and over bumps to eliminate the need for constant height adjustment. The Baffin also has a clean-off system that allows drivers to empty the magnet quickly and safely from the truck cab without ever having to get out of the truck or handle debris.

 

With a maximum pickup height of 10.75”, the Baffin is well suited to collect any metal debris up to 25 km/h (~15 mph) at the recommended sweeping height of 2” inches.

 

And the two on-board removable 1.65 cubic foot debris bins allow for the 95” inch wide magnet to be cleaned off multiple times before the bins need to be emptied. This increases efficiency by letting the magnet spend more time sweeping. And by easily keeping the magnet clear of debris there is more power available to collect debris which further increases efficiency.

 

Sweeping height adjustment (recommended 2”-5” inches) is done using stroke control blocks on the hydraulic cylinders. Moving from sweeping height to the travelling height of 10.5” inches just requires a cycle of the hydraulics (this position can be maintained by inserting all the supplied stroke control blocks or you may rely on the hydraulic system to keep the magnet suspended).

Control Airfield FOD with a magnetic sweeper.

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

Foreign object debris (FOD) is a substance, debris or article alien to a vehicle or system which would potentially cause damage. It can include many forms from ferrous nuts and bolts to nonferrous stones. Airfield FOD (Foreign Object Debris) damage can result in millions of dollars worth of damage to aircraft engines.

 

Internationally, airport FOD costs the aviation industry $13 billion dollars per year in direct plus indirect costs.

 

The indirect costs are as much as ten times the direct cost value, representing delays, aircraft changes, incurred fuel costs, unscheduled maintenance, and the like and causes expensive, significant damage to aircraft and parts and death and injury to workers, pilots and passengers.

How to control FOD

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.

 

Examples of airfield FOD include a wide range of items including aircraft parts, rocks, broken pavement, ramp equipment, parts from ground vehicles, garbage, maintenance tools, etc. mistakenly or purposely deposited on tarmac and/or runway surfaces, tools, bolts, metal shavings, lock wire, etc. mistakenly left behind inside aircraft during the manufacturing process or maintenance. FOD can include hail that can break windshields and damage or stop engines. Ice on the wings, propellers, or engine intakes is considered FOD. FOD can even be dust or ash clogging the air intakes (as in sandstorms in desert operating conditions or ash clouds in volcanic eruptions). For helicopters, this is also a major problem during a brownout.

 

Magnetic sweepers are just one tool used in the fight against airfield FOD, but an important one and one that can be easily deployed along with your other FOD strategies. Magnetic sweepers can work silently while operations continue.
