The Osprey Linear range provides airport and highways operators with a practical and economic solution for rubber and paint removal.

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.

LI 750

LI 750

Designed for less frequent operations, the LI 750 offers a cleaning width up to 750mm and can either be tractor-towed or skid-mounted.

Emission ratingTier III (or as required)

The Perkins 160kW unit combines high reliability with low running costs, whilst the Volvo engines provide 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

LI 750LI 1000LI 1500LI 1800
Speed rangen/a200 - 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.
