ROAD AND RUNWAY SURFACE FRICTION TESTERS

The ASFT company has been engaged in the production and development of surface friction testers since the year 1991 (as a continuer of SAAB’s work).

Since 2007, MEGMAR LOGISTICS & CONSULTING has been its exclusive representative on the Polish market.

Equipment manufactured by ASFT has a life span of about 15 years.

ASFT’s friction testers are made of the highest quality components – 95% of the parts the company produces itself.

MEGMAR L&C provides constant technical and service support, as well as access to spare parts and new technologies.

TESTERS IN AVIATION

SURFACE FRICTION TESTERS IN AVIATION

There are three types of testers available:
– surface friction testers mounted on a self-propelled vehicle – VW Sharan, Skoda Octavia, Volvo V70, Skoda Fabia etc.
trailer surface friction testers – T-5 (220 kg) and T-10 (420 kg)
portable surface friction testers  – T2GO (21 kg)

A distinctive feature of the first two types of testers is specially designed rear axle, consisting of a single tube and ensuring the contact pressure of the measuring wheel to the road bed with a value of 140 kg.

All self-propelled testers are equipped with automatic gearboxes, and only Skoda Fabia, designed for small airports, has a manual gearbox.

Friction testers can be equipped with a self-watering system and tanks of sizes tailored to the user’s needs (complying with safety rules).

The computer system, equipped with a touch screen, is created based on the latest available technologies, providing the ease and convenience of use.

All friction testers manufactured by ASFT are consistent with the guidelines of ICAO, FAA, national air traffic and road organizations. Moreover, they meet European standards, and even exceed them in a significant way.

If you need detailed information on friction testers, please download relevant brochures (below), or contact one of the MEGMAR L&C representatives.

ROAD TESTERS

SURFACE FRICTION TESTERS IN ROAD BUILDING AND MAINTENANCE

ASFT friction testers are also used in road building and maintenance.

There are a few types of road friction testers, mounted mainly on Volkswagen Sharan cars. The difference between them and ASFT’s airport friction testers is in the measuring wheel used.

Construction and design of airport and road friction testers are the same. All self-propelled and trailer testers can be equipped with self-watering system and tanks of sizes tailored to the user’s needs.

In road construction, also the pulled surface friction testers may be used, in the form of T-5 (220 kg) and T-10 (420 kg) trailers.

Both types of testers are characterized by a unique system using the rear axle, consisting of a single tube and providing pressure of the measuring wheel to the road bed with a value of 140 kg.

The type of surface friction testers that are innovative and extremely useful are portable T2GO testers, weighing approx. 21 kg. They are easy to use, and can be used at almost any, even the least accessible, place, and measurements made are accurate and repeatable.

In 2010, comparative studies of T2GO and SRT-3 were conducted, which confirmed the good correlation of both devices. The research was carried out by the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways and Research Institute of Roads and Bridges.

In 2009, Poland’s first T2GO device was purchased by the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA). Currently, both GDDKiA laboratories and universities are among the device’s users.
