runway sweeper / truck-mounted / multi-function
2,400 mm (94 in)
Schmidt Airport Permanent Magnet Bar
The PMB 2400 was developed for clearing airport runways, taxiways and aprons. With an operational width of 2,400 mm and a field density of approx. 300 Gauss, it reliably collects metal objects at a ground clearance of approx. 100 mm.
Construction and Technology
The PMB comprises of four components: the magnet system with its upper cover, two parallelograms with lifting/ lowering cylinders, as well as, a mounting plate. The PMB 2400's magnet system is powerful and very easy to operate. The strongest magnetic fields are directed downwards while the magnet fields to the side and upwards are considerably weaker. This ensures that magnet field restriction limits for the protection of people are strictly adhered to. The permanent magnet bar is smoothly guided over the road surface by two castor wheels. It was developed to be front-mounted on medium and large carrier vehicles. This makes it ideally suited to the airport sweeper AS 990, for example. The permanent magnet bar is mounted onto the mounting plate of the carrier vehicle by a quick-change device. This means that it can be mounted or de-mounted within a few minutes. Mounting on size 3 or size 5 vehicle mounting plates is no problem.
