Snowcompressor

Standard:
Scope:

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) document covers the requirements for a Snowcompressor with carrier vehicle used to clear snow from airport operational areas by compressing the volume of collected snow into smaller volumes for loading into a hauling/dump truck or for depositing reduced-volume windrows for snow banking. The term carrier vehicle represents the various self-propelled prime movers that provide the power necessary to move snow and ice control equipment during winter operations. For two-stage rotary plows that primarily are used to cast heavy concentrations of snow away from airport operational areas such as runways and taxiways, see ARP5539.

Rationale:

The rationale for the development of this document, ”Snowcompressor With Carrier Vehicle”, is to standardize the requirements for operation and performance of a snowcompressor that is attached to a carrier vehicle that will compress snow to smaller volumes before tossing collected snow onto the airfield or into hauling/dump trucks.
