Many airports have requirements for picking up of deicing fluid (glycol) used to deice planes, which may then run off onto the gate area surface or runway waiting, and which require special airport sweepers. Environmental regulations generally require this be cleaned up before the material can flow into the storm drain system and mix with storm water runoff.
The Elgin product line offers the Crosswind GRS (Glycol Recovery Sweeper), a sweeper specifically designed for glycol recovery. The Crosswind GRS is a multi-purpose machine that can collect and remove glycol during a snow event, but also be used for basic maintenance sweeping. Crosswind GRS sweeper may be equipped with options that allow for pump off or decanting of the fluid without compromise to sweeping capability.
