Infrared Ground Deicing System
The company's ground deicing systems use gas-fired "targeted infrared energy" to deice aircraft before flight
Radiant Energy Systems's ground deicing systems use gas-fired "targeted infrared energy" to deice aircraft before flight. The systems are available in a variety of configurations for aircraft as small as a single-engine Piper and as large as a military C5A transport. The InfraTek System 2000, as an example, can accommodate the majority of commercial aircraft up through 757 size jets.

Each system includes:

  • a structure, designed for specific aircraft types and airport usage;
  • an array of energy process units (EPUs), which convert gas fuel to targeted wavelength infrared heat energy; and
  • a computer control system, which optimizes system performance for each aircraft type and contamination condition.

    Special configurations have also been designed to accommodate:

  • multiple station deicing within a facility;
  • military requirements;
  • specific fuel gas and electrical supply requirements; and
  • extreme location requirements (121 mph winds, 54 psf ground
    snow, -20 degrees F ambient temperatures).
