Pirkkala, Finland -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/03/2015 -- Moventor Oy, a Finnish manufacturer of friction measurement tools and airport equipment is proud to introduce the Skiddometer BV 11, a friction testing unit which can be used across both military as well as civil operations.
Friction measurement of runways plays a crucial role in determine the operational efficiency of an airport. Over the years, friction measurement systems have gotten better and today, most airports feature such friction measurement systems.
The Skiddometer BV 11 systems can accurately determine the breaking point by measuring the friction on the runway of an airport. Designed to be used as a trailer attached to a back of a car, Skiddometer units have been around for over three decades now and are considered to be quite effective as friction measurement systems. In fact, they are the most accurate and the most reliable of friction measurement systems to be used in the world today.
The Skiddometer BV11 friction measurement units are approved for use by both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as well as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In fact, the Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment (CFME) which is present in the Skiddometer BV11 unit is considered to be the most reliable and accurate in determining the values of the actual surface friction of runways across different systems.
Today, both the ICAO and the FAA require that every airport facing turbojet traffic should have access to CFME systems. While the Skiddometer BV 11 is approved by both these organizations, the product is also recommended to be used across airports which receive turbojet traffic.
Effective to be used in improving the operational safety of airports and proving to be effective in the scheduling of maintenance operations for a runway, Skiddometer units can offer other benefits as well.
There are over 400 Skiddometer BV 11 units actively being used across military as well as civil aviation operations across different airports in the world today. The entire friction measurement system consists of Skiddometer BV 11 units assisted with MI computers which perform and record data as well as display the calculations made on a screen. In certain special cases, an on-board wetting system can be mounted on the entire friction measurement system to further assist in runway calibration as per the standards of the FAA and the ICAO. This method measures the friction in a depth of 1 mm of water.
Moventor Oy is not only involved in the manufacture of Skiddometer BV 11 units, but is also involved in deploying, servicing and training of proper usage of the product. After sales service and consultation services regarding Skiddometer BV 11 units are also offered by the company.
