Aircraft Deicing Example:
Military Deicing Contract

This example of an aircraft deicing application forces pressurized air through a patented rubber nozzle and moves approximately 1,300 cfm at over 700 mph. Impeller speeds exceed 40,000 rpm in intermittent duty usage. The air stream is so powerful that it literally “lifts” snow and ice from the exposed surfaces. This results in faster deicing of aircraft, and reduces consumption of deicing fluid by nearly 80%. This reduction in the use of deicing fluid (glycol) delivers a significant reduction in operating cost and major environmental benefits. Glycol usage is regulated by the EPA, and has mandatory and expensive remediation requirements.

End users include the US Air Force, Royal Canadian Air Force, commercial airlines and cargo airlines. Inovair is the worldwide leader in this segment since 1999 and has become the preferred supplier for all domestic manufacturers of forced air deicing equipment.
