The AirSweep is an easy to use, non-contact pneumatic tool that effectively removes embedded water and debris from rough surfaces over large areas.

The AirSweep has been successfully tested by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) on USS MAHAN (DDG 72) in partnership with the Navy Warfare Development Command (NWDC).

The AirSweep was developed to utilize the shipboard 125 PSIG compressed air supply to provide Sailors with a simple, effective tool to quickly and efficiently move standing water and debris anywhere on a ship.

The AirSweep was designed to help Sailors plagued with the time consuming and manpower intensive task of removing standing water from the rough non-skid deck that covers the exterior of maritime vessels. Shipboard regulations force Sailors to use bristle brooms, which despite preventing damage to the deck of the ship are ineffective tools in moving water and often leave behind broom bristles.  The AirSweep gives Sailors a tool that does the water and debris removal faster and more effectively.

Why the AirSweep?
Traditional squeegees do a great job at moving water over smooth surfaces. Bristle Brooms can move water and debris on rough surfaces, but only with multiple passes. Electric vacuums require maintenance and are subject to electrical safety requirements. The simple, user friendly design of the AirSweep will quickly and easily “sweep” water and debris out from rough surfaces.

How it works:
Compressed air is directed from the shipboard source down a long handle and into a “U” shaped manifold which directs the flow of air into a series of nozzles that pushes water or debris in any direction.

The versatility of the AirSweep means it can operate on any surface to push nearly any substance and do so more efficiently and effectively than existing sweeping products.  It’s a squeegee that works on any surface.

Because the AirSweep is efficient and effective it can reduce the cleaning man-hour requirements by 92% because it moves 20-50% more water than a bristle broom over rough surfaces.

The AirSweep is Patent Pending.
