The LA2200 provides airport and highways operators with the most effective surface coating removal system available today.

Using a computer-controlled cleaning head to provide pinpoint accuracy, the Osprey Lateral head can be automatically adjusted from the cab to remove rubber deposits or paint from 300mm to 2,200mm widths, ensuring that cleaning is focused only on the areas that need it, reducing the quantity of water and fuel used for each sortie whilst also reducing the risk of surface damage.

LA 2200/28

LA 2200/28

Our most popular model. Capable of delivering 28 l/min, the LA 2200/28 delivers effective rubber and paint removal for medium and large airports.

LA 2200/42

A 2200/42

Our largest lateral model, with water rates up to 42 l/min. The LA 2800/42 can support cleaning operations at the largest and busiest airports in the world.

Linear vs. Lateral – what’s the difference?

Jetting Systems are the only manufacturer worldwide that can impartially offer airport authorities and contractors either lateral or linear rubber removal systems and without bias explain the pros and cons or each method.

Maximum power160 kW265 kW
Operating speed1800 rpm
Emission ratingTier III (or as required)

The Perkins 160kW unit combines high reliability with low running costs, whilst the Volvo engine provides higher power ratings within a small and reliable unit. Alternatively, should a Tier 4 or 5 auxiliary engine be required, or if higher water and debris tank capacities are needed, we can supply an OMSI Split Shaft Power Take-Off drive. This allows a maximum power of 480kW and an operating speed of 1,350 rpm.

Speed reduction system

LA 2200/28LA 2200/42
Speed range200 - 6000 m/hr

Unlike other systems, Osprey also offers hydrostatic speed reduction, dependant on your specific application. The Omsi PCH split shaft gearbox enables a hydrostatic forward and reverse drive in conjunction with the pump and vacuum system drive. The Omsi RPM 15 is used where a hydrostatic forward / reverse drive is preferred in conjunction with an auxilary engine.

Fabricated around the debris tank, the clean water supply tank is fitted with internal baffles to reduce water movement and hence improve vehicle handling. Two optional bolster tanks can be fitted to provide additional capacity. Debris is collected in a cylindrical tank equipped with hydraulically operated locking clamps and rear door. Once drained, the tank can be tipped to remove the remaining rubber/paint deposits. Clean water and debris tank options are available up to 12,600 l and 15,200 l respectively.

In order to prevent damage to the vehicle or its components, there are a number of safety features that will automatically stop the operation.

In addition to protecting the vehicle, Osprey features a runway protection system which monitors forward speed, stopping the high pressure pump if the speed drops and thus preventing damage to the pavement.
