Glycol Recovery

Airplane Being Deiced

Today more than ever, airport management is looking for ways to leverage the most out of every piece of equipment that is purchased for their airport. With the need to keep airport runways, ramps, aprons and staging areas clear of Foreign Object Debris (FOD) as well as increased pressure from environmental regulations requiring airports to eliminate deicing fluid runoff, airports are buying more and more equipment to help them get their jobs done quickly and more efficiently. Some environmental regulators propose that airports construct centralized deicing pads to assist in complying with environmental requirements. Because of space constraints and expense, changing an airport’s flight workflow around a centralized deicing pad isn’t always feasible. Using a glycol recovery system such as the Model HSP® or Model 600® equipped with the TYMCO Liquid Recovery System (LRS) helps airports meet environmental regulations while controlling expenses. Plus, you can also use your new TYMCO to sweep your runways and taxiways - making it a piece of equipment used year-round.

Your TYMCO is also a Glycol Recovery Vehicle

When partnered with TYMCO’s Liquid Recovery System (LRS), a TYMCO Model HSP or Model 600 can also be used to recover glycol or other deicing fluids from airport ramps, aprons, gates and staging areas. From the comfort of the truck chassis, the operator can use their TYMCO to “sweep up” all of the glycol or deicing fluid that collects around aircraft waiting to depart along with any debris in the area. The operator can then travel to an area where the airport stores used glycol and pump off all of the deicing fluid accumulated inside the TYMCO hopper while leaving the majority of other debris swept up inside the hopper for dumping. The Model HSP and Model 600 can collect over 700 gallons of liquid and can easily change from a glycol recovery vehicle back to an airfield sweeper. There are no components that the operator needs to change to switch from sweeping paved surfaces to glycol recovery.
