Intrigued about the ICC Dynamic Friction Tester (ICC DFT™) and its capabilities? We have gathered some FAQs to help understand this advanced friction measurement device better!

What is the DFT™? The ICC DFT™ is an aerodynamic tow-behind continuous friction measurement device (CFME) approved by the FAA for use on airport runways.

What makes it unique? It features an aerodynamic design for accurate measurements, year-round functionality, and real-time data collection. It’s also portable, self-contained, and built to last, reducing maintenance and operating costs.

Is the ICC DFT FAA-approved? Yes, it is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), ensuring it meets rigorous standards for reliability and suitability on airport runways.

Does the ICC DFT comply with ASTM standards? Definitely. It adheres to ASTM E2340, a recognized method for measuring the skid resistance of pavements using a continuous reading, fixed-slip technique.

Can the device operate in different weather conditions? Yes, the ICC DFT is designed to function effectively in both summer and winter conditions, providing crucial friction data to maintain safe runway conditions year-round.

What contaminants can the ICC DFT identify? The device helps identify and assess various contaminants, including rubber deposits, dust particles, jet fuel, oil spillage, water, snow, ice, and slush, which can impact runway friction.

How does the ICC DFT transmit data? The collected data is transmitted wirelessly or via direct serial cable to a tow vehicle laptop or tablet, ensuring efficient and timely data transfer.

What friction parameters does the ICC DFT measure? The friction parameters it calculates include Mu (friction coefficient) or RCR (Runway Condition Rating) values. It also measures skid resistance, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, MSD (Mean Slippage Distance), MPD (Peak Slippage Distance), and RMS (Root Mean Square)

How is the data displayed? The collected friction data is displayed graphically in real-time, providing immediate insights into runway conditions. Data can be shown in easy-to-read bar charts for specific runway sections.

Is it portable? Yes! With its self-contained design, the ICC DFT is portable and can be easily moved to different locations for friction measurements, adding to its versatility and ease of use.

What are the long-term benefits of using the ICC DFT? The equipment is engineered with state-of-the-art precision and features a durable, environmentally friendly design that significantly reduces maintenance and operating expenses, making it a cost-effective solution for airport authorities.
