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.

Available in 6 sizes:  38”, 50”, 62”, 74”, 86”, 98”

The PYR hanging magnet was designed for flat terrain and “on road” type uses where not much ground strike prevention is needed. “On road” type bump wheels are provided on the ends to eliminate magnet strikes due to occasional potholes, incline ramps and speed bump type obstacles.

 

Choose from 2 different models with different magnet strengths, and 6 different magnet lengths from 3 to 8 feet, to get the perfect setup for your application.

 

Maximum lifting height of 6” inches (using a 2 ½ inch nail) for the PYR 3”x3” model, and 9 ¼” inches for the PYR 4.5”x4.5” model. Measuring Magnetic Sweeper pickup power and performance.

 

Also includes 4 stabilizing chains with 8 quick clips to hang the PYR from your vehicle.

 

Standard debris clean off method is to wipe the magnet clean with a glove or rag. However a black PVC Quick Clean Off Sleeve accessory may be purchased separately for quick and easy debris removal.

Available in 4 sizes:  AETHER 62”, AETHER 74”, AETHER 86”, AETHER 98”

The AETHER hanging magnet was designed for off road and rough pavement situations where more ground strike prevention is needed than the EIGER provides, but less ground strike prevention than the REMORAS provides.

 

The 10” x 3” flat proof bump wheels on the ends prevent the magnet from hitting the ground and from sinking into loose surfaces, and the wheeled outriggers provide additional ground strike prevention in the middle of the magnet’s overall length.

 

Maximum lifting height of 9” inches (using a 2 ½ inch nail). Measuring Magnetic Sweeper pickup power and performance.

 

Comes standard with a black PVC Quick Clean Off Sleeve for quick and easy debris removal. Also includes 6 stabilizing chains with 12 quick clips to the AETHER from your vehicle.

Control Airfield FOD with a magnetic sweeper.

debris2-magnet-sweeper-piranha-bluestreak-equipment

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.
