Smart Manufacturing

SMART is an acronym for Street Maintenance and Runway Technologies. The staff of SMART Mfg. combine over 50 years of anti-icing and de-icing experience and are dedicated to providing superior service and personal attention to the special needs of the airfield industry. SMART Mfg. is very familiar with Airside Operations at airport locations throughout North America.


  • A pallet type sprayer unit that is mountable on 3/4 ton or larger pickup box, flatbed truck or trailer.

  • This sprayer unit uses one exchangeable, UN approved, Intermediate Bulk Container (IBCs) as a product tank.

  • Driver-friendly computer system controls the application rate as the vehicle speed or boom width changes.

  • Three-section spray boom and unique Variable Orifice (VO) nozzles

  • Application rates of 0.25 gallon per 1,000 ft2 (0.95L / 93m2) at 1-50 mph and 1.0 gallon per 1,000 ft2 (3.8L / 93m2) at 1-36 mph

  • The SMART-Tote 125 frame is constructed of tubular steel and powder coat finished for durability.

  • The three-section spray boom provides spray widths from 8′ to 25′ (2.4 to 7.6m).

  • Protected by a breakaway clutch at the hinge, the booms release if they strike an object.

  • When the booms are in the transport position, center section spraying is ideal for treating single lane roadways, parking areas and pedestrian walkways.


  • UN-approved Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) are used as a product tank for the SMART-Tote series deicer unit.

  • IBCs offer convenient storage for airports with limited storage facilities.

  • When the bulk container empties the operator returns it to storage and exchanges it for a full one.

  • Quick product tank changes result in fast and efficient turn around times.


  • The computer system monitors product flow, active boom width and ground speed to adjust the product pump output.

  • The desired application rate is maintained regardless of the vehicle speed.

  • The GVS velocity sensor (a GPS based sensor) produces true ground speed and eliminates magnetic drag wheel speed sensors and vehicle transmission interfacing.


  • From Intermediate Bulk Containers, deicer liquid pumps through an efficient Centrifugal Cast-Iron Pump with a 5.5HP Honda engine.

  • The computer system regulates product flow by controlling the engine throttle speed.

  • A three valve shut-off assembly controls spray boom nozzle sections.

  • Nozzle Valves may be used independently or combined using switches for left, right or center nozzles as desired.


  • The flow rate of the Variable Orifice (VO) nozzle changes as required by the vehicle speed and product flow.

  • The inherent anti-drip design closes the nozzle when the vehicle stops.

  • The nozzle droplet size and velocity produces no splash at 40 mph, reducing atomization.

  • Spray at speeds from 1 to 50 mph and at rates from 0.25 to 2.0 gallons per 1000 square feet.

  • Variable Orifice (VO) nozzles eliminate check valves, selectable nozzles, quick-change nozzles, or multiple nozzle spray systems.


  • A 275 gallon (1,000L) Intermediate Bulk Container sprays up to 1.1 million square feet (102,000m2) with application rates from 0.25 to 2.0 gallons per 1000 square feet (0.95 to 7.5 L / 93m2).

  • This enables the driver to cover up to 44,000 lineal feet with a 25′ swath.


  • Hose Reel

  • Water Heater

  • Stainless-Steel Product Pump

  • Permanent Mount Product Tanks

  • 36 foot Boom Span for a 40 foot Spray Swath
