ICE PREVENTION: Pre-wetting stockpiles saves money!

Historically, pavement owner’s have waited to react only after the storm. Snowfall accumulated and then the expensive and arduous process of clean up and removal began–often taking days to complete, shutting down access for unbearable amounts of time.

Today, we know there is a better proactive way to combat the unpredictable winter months. Anti-icing with liquid de-icers can reduce removal effort by up to 10 to 1!

Pre-wetting agents bond and transform ordinary rock salt stockpiles into high performance de-icers, minimizes total operating costs up to 40%:

Pre-wetting: • Reduces the amount of chemical needed for melting and removing hazardous winter snow and ice. Liquid stays in the stockpile and sticks better when broadcast from application vehicles, reducing losses from bounce and scatter.

• Reduces associated costs such as driver/operator overtime and wear and tear on equipment. Fewer trips and the lack of repeat applications needed means work crews achieve a more workable and flowing inventory. Plus de-icers store well over the summer!

• Works longer / stays in-place longer, ultimately saving you money! Pre-wetted rock salt melts at lower temperatures which means it’s still working long after untreated salt has washed away.

And, that’s a difference you can see and a money-saver!
