Simultaneous vacuum recovery allows for immediate emergency landings during the removal process. The SK2000 will shut down and vacate the runway in 45 seconds.
Other benefits include:
- Rubber removal rates up to 19,000ft² (1,765m²/hr) on asphalt and concrete runways
- Rapid cleaning and rejuvenation of runway center line marking retro-reflectivity reduces dramatically the frequency of center line painting
- Runway retexturing in extreme hot climates where friction is lost because of asphalt bleeding
- Runway retexturing in climates with heavy snow and ice where snow removal brooms polish the surface of the runway
