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.
