Chafer Machinery build strong, technologically advanced and simple to operate spraying equipment. Custom built for each individual customer, Chafer deicers offer outstanding performance and productivity. Chafer Machinery’s range of trailed and demountable applicators offer something for every airport aiming to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their deicer application.
AUTO SECTION CONTROL
Chafer de-icers are now available with the option of automatic boom section control (ASC) to increase the accuracy of de-icer application. Using a GPS position, the ASC system accurately monitors where de-icer has been applied. When the spray boom overlaps an area that has been already applied, de-icer application is shut off automatically. Where the boom enters an area where de-icer hasn’t been applied application automatically restarts. ASC ensures application accuracy and helps to reduce over and under application.
Chafer de-icer control system features a mapping system which can record how much de-icer has been applied across the airfiled. This system uses GPS technology to precisely map de-icer coverage ensuring no areas of the airfiled or runway is under applied. Coverage maps can then be transferred to the office where they can be stored for future reference or printed.
AUTO NOZZLE CONTROL
Chafer de-icers can now be fitted with pneumatic multi line switching. This allows up to four lines to be spraying at any one time, resulting in a machine that can apply from 180L/ha at 10kph up to 400L/ha at 40kph without having to change a nozzle. As the de-icer increases speed the Chafer control system selects the correct nozzle combination to apply the correct rate at that forward speed. The biggest benefit of this is that it allows de-icing operations to be completed more quickly without detrimental effects on de-icer effectiveness.
