CFB

Compact jet sweeper

The CFB was developed for clearing snow from airport runways, taxiways and aprons. Due to its compact design and front mounted rotary brush, the jet sweeper is highly manoeuvrable and reliably clears snow and slush with a clearing width of 4500 mm.

Sweeping unit

The sweeping unit is mounted on the front of the carrier vehicle. This means that the CFB can efficiently clear both snow and slush. The brush is powered by two hydraulic engines. A hydraulic cylinder enables swivelling to the left and right. The rotary brush is suspended which ensures that horizontal adjustment to the sweeping surface is possible. Two castor wheels guide the rotary brush.

High pressure blower

The high pressure blower is driven by an auxiliary engine via a variable pump. The fan can be turned on or off by swivelling the pump. The blower was developed to produce an efficient fan output capacity. The air speed of up to 125 m/s is almost constant over the entire passage of air. This ensures that only a minimal loss of pressure and capacity occurs.

Snow plough

As an alternative to the rotary brush, the CFB can be fitted with a snow plough. Both the MS 56.1 and the MS 64.1 airport snow ploughs are ideally suited for this purpose.
