Innovative Design Deep Cleans with Environmental Approach that Recovers Water and Debris

The Advance Cyclone 4006™ deep cleans outdoor surfaces more effectively and in less time than other methods. A patented cleaning and recovery head aggressively cleans and removes buildup with no damage to the surface. Water and debris is recovered and separated, and nothing is left behind but a clean surface that dries quickly.

Over time, rubber buildup on airport runways can create a safety hazard. Advance’s Cyclone machines remove rubber marks from both grooved and smooth runways without damaging the integrity of the surface, whether it’s concrete or asphalt.

Painted lines are critical safety elements at airports and on highways and roadways. Advance’s Cyclone machines remove painted lines without damaging the surface, leaving it clean, dry and ready for repainting. All of the water used for cleaning as well as the painted line debris are recovered, ensuring an environmentally friendly solution to painted line removal.
