MALMS Cleaner


Removing Contamination

What is it?

Contamination of the airfield light lens is the most important factor affecting photometric performance. This contamination builds up at different rates in different locations. A single aircraft movement can deposit sufficient rubber to make a new fitting unserviceable.

MALMS Cleaner provide airport operators with a fast and effective method for cleaning lights. The Maintenance Optimizer integrates Mobile, Cleaner and Differential Maintenance methodology into a single maintenance solution enabling compliant airfield lighting serviceability to be optimized, even at the busiest airport.

Cleaning Data recorded by date, time and operator.

Inset or Elevated Lighting

Transverse will measure most types of inset and elevated lighting including approach lighting up to 1.5m above ground.

Laboratory Testing

Workshop will quickly and accurately measure the photometric performance of light fittings before they are installed on the airfield.

Effective Cleaning

MALMS have engineered products to remove contamination from light fittings and protect lights from future build up.
