SPRAYING UNIT, CLEANING-DEICING-ANTI-ICING FLUID, TRUCK MOUNTED
This commercial item description (CID) describes chassis mounted, diesel powered, spraying units, which are capable of deicing, anti-icing, cleaning, and decontaminating the entire range of airframes in the U. S. Air Force's inventory. Two general classifications are herein defined: first, a basic unit, Class A, that can de/anti-ice and clean all but the upper tail sections of C-5 and C-17 airframes; and, second, a spraying unit, Class B, provided with the extended reach necessary to effectively de/anti-ice C-5 and C-17 horizontal stabilizers. Both types of spraying units include boom-mounted enclosed cabs from which de/anti-icing and decontamination operations are performed. The spraying units are capable of the controlled application of heated deicing fluid, deicing fluid delivered via forced air and/or high efficiency nozzles, and unheated anti-icing fluid. An auxiliary power transmission source such as an engine or hydrostatic drive is provided to hydraulically operate all de-icing components including: boom and enclosed cab actuation, deicing-fluid heater motor and fuel pump, and separate deicing and anti-icing pump motors.
