The Glyvac™: Glycol Recovery Vehicle

A critical component of minimizing the impact of spent aircraft de-icing fluid on the surrounding environment is the rapid clean-up of used fluids from airport apron areas.

Acting on a marketplace need, Inland designed and now manufactures our patented Glyvac™.

Compared to other recovery vehicles, the Glyvac™ offers a number of features that drive operational efficiency:

  • Collection Efficiency: The Glyvac™ has a three-stage fluid separation system that removes 99.9% of glycol from the air stream.

  • Quick Offloading: The Glyvac™ uses an onboard pump capable of offloading a full load [6800 liters] in less than 10 minutes, improving recovery and labour efficiencies.

  • Safety: All recovery operations are managed from the driver's position so staff do not need to exit to activate the collection system.

  • Maintenance: Inland designed the Glyvac™ to eliminate high-wear, high maintenance items. Maintenance costs are significantly lower than comparable vehicles.

  • Fuel Consumption: The recovery system is so efficient that the required horsepower dropped from 325 [on comparable systems] down to 173 HP. This has resulted in average fuel savings of 30 to 45%.
