CFME – Continuous friction measuring equipment

CFME means equipment which friction value is determined in a way that friction values are measured from the whole runway length. This way the most accurate results are achieved and the difference on friction levels on different parts of the runway can be evaluated. The Skiddometer -principle is a measuring way that was a break trough and remains the same still today although the technology surrounding the measuring system has improved a lot in 60 years. This old and reliable measuring principle added with new technology has made Skiddometer the most reliable and advanced measuring system in the market. Moventor manufactures, delivers and services Skiddometer BV11 continuous friction measuring equipment around the world.

Runway calibration

Besides using the Skiddometer during rain, slush, and snow conditions (operational use), the Skiddometer is also used for checking the runway surface condition and “rubber build-ups” (Runway Calibration), i.e. measuring wet friction at a water depth of one millimeter. This measurement is based on recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and ASTM standard E 1960 – 98.

Since wet pavement always yields the lowest friction measurements, we offer a self-wetting system which simulates wet pavement surface conditions and provides the operator with a continuous record of friction values along the length of the runway. The attached water pump and nozzle are designed to provide a uniform water depth of 1 mm (0.04 inches) in front of the friction measuring tire. This wetted surface produces friction values that are most meaningful in determining whether or not corrective actions are required.


Moventor Oy is a modern, international, strongly growing and developing manufacturing company, highly specialised in friction measurement and the airport equipment business. Our core business areas include developing, manufacturing, delivering and servicing Skiddometer BV 11 continuous friction measuring equipment around the world and representing EHR- Fahrzeugtechnik Cleaning Systems in the Scandinavian region.

Moventor’s head office and factory are located in Pirkkala in Finland. Moventor is committed to providing you products and services that increase the value and effectiveness of your business.

Apron and Runway cleaning

Aprons and runways have to be cleaned time to time. Reasons for the cleaning are variable, for example de-icing chemichals, dust, dirt, etc. There are different options depending on the demand and Moventor can offer you just the right equipment.


All Moventor products are designed and built for tough demands. They provide the highest quality, outstanding reliability and performance. Based on the highest quality, we can promise our products the lowest life cycle costs in the industry.

The Moventor product selection consists of the following major product groups:

  • Skiddometer BV11, the world’s leading Continuous Friction Measurement Equipment (CFME). Skiddometer® runway friction testing systems are used today in civil and military operations with close to 400 units. Systems consist of the Skiddometer BV11 trailer and an MI-series computer for calculating, recording and printing friction data. Optionally the system can be equipped with “WMS” or “On-Board” self wetting systems for runway calibration, i.e. measuring friction in water depth of 1 mm in accordance with the standards of the ICAO and FAA.
  • EHR-Fahrzeugtechnik Cleaning Systems (Scandinavian representation). EHR Cleaning Systems meet the needs of demanding industrial applications. These advanced products are designed for use in airports, municipal engineering and road construction projects.
  • Moventor also offers after sales services, training, and consultancy. All our delivery projects can be provided with different financing options: direct ownership, leasing, or rental.
