The benefits of anti-icing, brine spread with nozzles.
Compared to conventional salt spreading methods.
Reduce icy roads accidents!
Benefit the environment!
More smooth traffic flow!
The truck velocity is normal legal velocity for trucks.
How does it work?
Brine as anti-icing is similar to how cooking oil prevents food from sticking to the frying pan.
It forms a bond-breaker between the pavement surface and the snow and ice layer which reduces the chance that ice will form and bond to the surface.
Applying anti-icing to the road
Brine is spread evenly across the road through nozzles mounted on the spreading vehicle, pointing backwards.
