Key Features


Pickup Head

Pick-Up Head

 

The TYMCO Model HSP® (High Speed Performance) patented pick-up head incorporates full-width air blast and suction and is designed to work effortlessly with the TYMCO Regenerative Air System to pick up a wide variety of airport Foreign Object Debris (FOD) from trash to heavy gravel and hardware at much faster sweeping speeds than traditional sweeping.  The patented HSP pick-up head is engineered to sweep using only air, without the need of a main broom which was required by other runway sweepers, and had traditionally been used on airport runways, ramps, aprons and taxiways prior to the introduction of the Model HSP.

By designing a sweeper that is effective at sweeping at speeds of 15-25 mph, the Model HSP pick-up head eliminated the problems of main broom bristles falling out and creating additional FOD as well as grounding straps becoming entangled and damaging main brooms causing downtime and costly repairs.  The Model HSP pick-up head also comes standard with long-lasting Duo-Skids® which provide increased sweeping performance and longer wear with minimal friction when in contact with the paved runway surface.  Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) polyethylene skids are also available for added safety where absolute spark prevention is a concern.

 


Hopper

Hopper

 

The Model HSP hopper capacity is over 7.3 cubic yards and ensures owners a payload of over 10,000 lbs.  The TYMCO raker-assist dumping system provides smooth discharge of debris from a stationary hopper without requiring unnecessary telescopic hydraulic cylinders for hoisting, hydraulically controlled door latch assemblies, additional hydraulic door opening cylinders, grease points and safety concerns such as pinch points and overhead clearance.

 


Gutter Broom

Gutter Broom

 

The 43” diameter Model HSP gutter broom removes debris from around airport ramps, aprons and gates.  An optional tilt adjuster allows you to reach down into the deepest curbs or gutters.  The innovative gutter broom provides excellent performance by automatically determining the “digging” pressure needed for different debris; therefore, owners get maximum gutter broom bristle life and sweeping performance.  If the gutter broom encounters an immovable object, it will automatically retract to avoid potential damage and return to the original position once the immovable object has been passed, all without intervention from the operator.  Polypropylene gutter brooms are also available and recommended to help reduce the introduction of additional FOD and sparks from steel gutter brooms in sensitive areas such as airport runways, taxiways and staging areas.

 


Dust Control

Dust Control System

 

The Model HSP is the only airport runway sweeper on the market with a high-efficiency centrifugal dust separator for maximum fine dust particulate separation which provides excellent dust control while using less water.  TYMCO’s engineers take several aspects into account when designing for better dust control such as water nozzle design and placement, not just adding more water like other airport sweepers.  The Model HSP has a water capacity of up to 330 gallons which provides hours of sweeping while maintaining excellent dust control.

 


Power Unit

 

The Model HSP is powered by a 99 horsepower John Deere auxiliary engine.  This engine powers all hydraulic functions through a gear driven pump and directly belt drives the blower.  The lightweight aluminum alloy blower that drives the TYMCO Regenerative Air System only requires a modest amount of horsepower; therefore TYMCO’s engineers designed the Model HSP around a smaller, more fuel efficient auxiliary engine.

 


Auxiliary Hand Hose

Auxiliary Hand Hose

 

The auxiliary hand hose is a powerful suction nozzle for hard-to-reach cleaning such as storm drain catch basins, sumps, fence lines and around other areas such as taxiway lighting and grounding points.  An optional hydraulic boom assist is also available which makes operation even easier for cleaning out catch basins and sumps.  From the stowed position on the back of the sweeper, the auxiliary hand hose quickly adapts the Model HSP into a powerful suction nozzle for hard to get to cleaning applications.  The auxiliary hand hose is 8" in diameter and available with multiple nozzle extensions to reach the deepest storm drain catch basins.

 


Blower Wheel

 

The Model HSP is the only airport runway sweeper that utilizes a super-efficient aluminum alloy blower that is self-cleaning and reduces fuel consumption because of its lightweight design requiring less horsepower.  The blower is designed to work with the TYMCO Regenerative Air System to both push and pull air which delivers even greater sweeping performance.  The Model HSP blower also has a natural rubber coating providing maximum wear against abrasive debris.

Peterbilt 220 or Autocar Xpert

The cabover truck chassis allows the Model HSP to carry additional water for dust control as well as provide space for toolbox storage and maintenance tools such as shovels, rakes and brooms.  The additional storage provides more versatility if other maintenance tasks need to be taken care of after sweeping such as tending to airport ramps, aprons or gate landscaping.
