The ACE is an airport combination machine for de-icing runways, taxi-ways and aprons and is available in four different versions to meet differing needs. With the ACE range, solid and liquid spreading materials can be applied separately or combined in a single operation, and it is designed for mounting on large carrier vehicles and semi-trailers.

Modular construction

The ACE is designed for mounting on large carrier vehicles and semi-trailers and, due to its modular construction, can be assembled in many different ways to meet the individual requirements of different airports.

The combination machine consists of three components: the body with modular liquid tanks made of polyethylene, the drive unit, and the separate spreading material container with a distribution system. There are only a few wearing parts. and the entire machine benefits from specially developed corrosion protection, while all joints are hermetically sealed.

Hopper

The ACE's  hopper has a volume from 4.0-7.0m³ while the polyethylene system tanks are suitable for any spraying agent. They are available from 1,850 litres and can be supplemented with 2,200 or 2,500 litre front tanks. The hopper and tank configurations can be adapted to suit different vehicles and local conditions.

Dosage and conveyor system

The spreading material is transported to the distribution system by a V-profiled conveyor belt. Pressure distributors relieve the pressure of the spreading material on the belt ensuring a long service life.

Distribution system

For all ACE variants, a double-disc spreading system allows solid, liquid or mixed spreading materials to be used. The spreading agent is delivered via a conveyor belt and liquid pump, based on the vehicle's speed. Mixtures of solid and liquid spraying materials can be applied up to a ratio of 1:1 (50% solid and 50% liquid) thanks to a special injection system, while closed control loops allow precise distribution of the de-icing agent.

ACE-2S - The basic version

For airports wanting a de-icing solution ideally suited to every situation, the smart ACE-2S concept is a great entry-level variant. Thanks to the special spreading discs, both spreading and spraying materials can be applied.

  • Two special spreading discs to the rear
  • Spreading width of 6m to 24m*
  • Spraying width of 6m to 15m
  • A proven design that’s used worldwide
  • Flexible application options – solid, liquid or combined
  • Technology that’s been tested around the globe in a wide range of winter conditions

ACE-ASPS - The entry-level variant with nozzles

The ideal solution for airports that want precise spraying with less de-icing time pressure.

  • Two special spreading discs to the rear
  • Fixed spray bar to the rear
  • Two side spraying arms at the front with a single row of nozzles
  • Spreading width of 6m to 24m*
  • Spraying width of 6m-16m or up to 24m using long ejection nozzles
  • Sophisticated, functional technology that’s ideal for smaller airports
  • Good value for money
  • Convenient folding of the spraying arms using the ES control panel in the driver’s cab

The ACE-ASP - The expert variant with nozzles
