Thermal machine TM-59MG is intended for clearing ice loading from artificial airfield surfaces and warning about uprising of ice loading by drying them, as well as for conducting special works.
Produced on the base of tractor ORTЗ-150k.
Principle of machine's action is based on use of hot gases stream, coming out of jet engine nozzle VK-1А with high speed pressure. Under the influence of gas stream on iced surface at negative air temperature, ice melting occurs with partial evaporation and left water displacement aside.
Additional equipment of thermal machine is intended for decontamination, degasification and disinfection of airfield surfaces and technique.
