Trackjet can increase skid resistance on race tracks, runways and roads.
Originally purchased to maintain the runways at the UK’s busiest airports, Ringway’s versatile TrackJet has proven a formidable tool in the Specialist Treatments range. Using pure water, with no chemical additives or excess heat, the TrackJet system delivers water at ultra-high pressure, with precise computer control, through the largest and most sophisticated machine of its type for uniquely powerful retexturing.
Capable of restoring and improving friction on a variety of services, self-transporting and completely self-contained, Ringway’s TrackJet water-retexturing system is capable of being quickly deployed almost anywhere in the UK mainland, and occasionally beyond.
The on-board vacuum collection system ensures there is minimal water run-off, and the surface is left with improved friction, near-dry and immediately useable. With a total working length of just 18 metres, traffic management can be tailored to cause a minimum of disruption.
With the sophisticated computer control of the treatment head, reconfiguring the machine for both paint and thermoplastic line removal takes a matter of seconds, and with one of the largest capacities in the market, this system is ideally suited to demarking major routes. In fact, with the vacuum collection in place, it’s only a short time before markings can be renewed.
Ringway’s unique; purpose built TrackJet, from Runway Rubber Removal specialists Weigel Hochdrucktechnik GMBH, is the largest and most capable of its kind, and the only one in the UK available for contracting.
Across the world, TrackJet technology has been selected by major international airports for its effective rubber removal and friction improvements, the minimised usage of water, and the drastic reductions in surface erosion otherwise caused by higher flow systems.
Capable of running for up to 7 hours on a single fill of water, the self-contained Ultra-High Pressure Water Rubber Removal System is combined with a highly effective vacuum collection system, ensuring that the runway is left near-dry, and immediately usable.
The system is optimised for airport operational requirements – it can deploy in seconds, and convert from specialised rubber removal equipment to a normal road vehicle at the touch of a button. This means we can vacate a runway in simply the time it takes to drive away – maximising cleaning outputs and minimising the risk of disruption to movements. Better yet, the onboard GPS guidance system will put us back on the exact spot to resume working, with no fuss, and no searching, even on the darkest night shift.
We’re also uniquely experienced in using high-pressure water for chlorinated rubber airfield marking removal, and our equipment is capable of removing markings of any width up to 2.2 metres in a single pass – perfect for large scale demarking projects such as a threshold displacement – and the accurate computer control removes the chances of human error and runway damage in this delicate and precise operation.
