Moventor Friction Measurement Systems and Equipment for the Airport Industry

Moventor is a growing international manufacturer that specialises in friction measurement and runway reporting services for airports.

Our core Skiddometer BV11 friction measuring equipment range is designed for continuous monitoring for airport runways and can be used with our runway reporting software.

Continuous friction measuring equipment for airport runways

Moventor’s continuous friction measuring equipment (CFME) aims to determine the friction value measured from the whole length of the runway. This provides accurate results and allows for varying friction levels across the runway to be evaluated.

Skiddometer uses technology that has been developed for over 60 years, making it one of the most advanced measuring systems available on the market. We manufacture, deliver and service Skiddometer BV11 friction testing equipment worldwide.

In addition to winter friction measuring, our CFME is also designed for wet friction measurement to check rubber accumulation on airport runways. We also provide spare parts, service and calibration with all Skiddometer friction testers.

Trailer and vehicle integrated friction measurement equipment

The Skiddometer BV11 trailer system can be easily towed by any vehicle and has one of the lowest proven lifecycle costs on the market. Maintenance and calibration are only required once a year due to few of the system’s parts being exposed to wear. All models of the durable trailer can be modified with the latest parts and computer system.

Our Skiddometer BV11VI vehicle integration system has been adapted to use a hydraulic lift system with our BV11 system and touchscreen computer. This allows the unit to be easily installed on most pick-up trucks without making any modifications to the vehicle. Skiddometer BV11VI ensures friction measurement can be carried out during adverse weather conditions with any vehicles, including four-wheel drive cars designed for these conditions.

Airport runway reporting software

Moventor is experienced in runway reporting, which is required to supply pilots with information for safe take-off and landing. It provides information for notice to airmen about hazardous conditions due to snow or ice (SNOWTAM), in addition to graphical status information for air traffic control (ATC) and briefing.

Our Global Runway Reporter software can create customised screens with runway condition data, which can be used by ATC to see the status of the runway. Screens can be used for briefings to allow pilots to plan flight and take-off parameters. The software ensures airports are standardised in line with the Global Reporting Format (GRF) by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

When runway condition data needs to be analysed, we offer a web module designed to facilitate analysis. We can adapt analysis tools according to customer requirements and run a high number of data reports.

Using the combination of runway contaminant and friction tester data, the programme can create a safety analysis to combine the value of the reporter runway conditions. This enables the creation of a support tool for inspectors to support runway condition code (RwyCC) decision-making with friction testing results.
