Boschung today announced Chicago O'Hare International Airport acquired another 36 Jetbrooms, adding to the existing fleet of 29 of the same vehicles already successfully in use for the crucial winter operations on the airport. With over 900,000 aircraft operations a year, keeping surfaces operational and traffic moving on the Chicago O'Hare International Airport is imperative all year long.
The multipurpose Boschung Jetbroom blower-sweeper-blower and its unrivalled concept is the most powerful and efficient snow clearing vehicle specialized for airport on today's market. Its unique compact conception, originally launched in 1985, is built with an exclusive single piece heavy duty chassis allowing the mounting of work equipment onto the platform. The Jetbroom blower-sweeper-blower approach consists of a broom between the front and back axles of the vehicle with air blowing jets in front of the broom to blast the snow, slush and water lifted by the broom to the side. A second air jet is blowing left overs behind the broom. It results in a lower angle setting of the sweeping unit which increases the cleaning width and the working speed for a black runway with superior efficiency. An over 27ft (8.4 m) plow is attached to the front of the truck and a high capacity bulk or liquid de-icer fitted on its back making the Jetbroom a perfectly multipurpose winter machine. The Jetbroom also comes with a summer kit.
Chicago O'Hare International Airport is currently the busiest airport in the world for operations serving non-stop flights to 250 destinations in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. Over 83 million individuals travel through this hub annually. O'Hare has four numbered passenger terminals with nine letter concourses and a total of 191 gates. Chicago O'Hare counts 7 runways.
