SNOW AND ICE SOLUTIONS... SIMPLIFIED

Liquid deicing can be a more effective solution for snow and ice control than rock salt while also reducing costs for your business. Discover the benefits of using liquid brine and the science behind liquid deicing. Including how it can positively impact your business and ways to incorporate it into your fleet.

LIQUID: BETTER FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Works Faster

In most cases, liquids can get parking lots back to bare pavement 3-4x faster than traditional snow and ice solutions.

Reduces Costs

On average, making the switch to liquid deicing results in a 30%-70% reduction in overall salt usage.

More Effective

Liquid deicing can take place up to 48 hours before a storm occurs.

Reduces Labor

Because of the ease of which it is applied, and the more effective application rate, liquids save on labor costs.

Better for the Environment

Liquid deicing utilizes less chlorides and results in less chloride contamination of storm water.

Applications of Liquids

Liquid deicing can be applied to surfaces on a Pre-treatment, Post-treatment, or Interstorm treatment.

PRE-TREATMENT APPLICATION

Pre-treatment applications are made before the storm to prevent the bond of snow and ice to the surface and prevent a mild amount of accumulation. This allows for easier mechanical removal of snow and ice and thereby the use of less salt after your plows are finished.

  • Goal: Broad, even coverage to reach all the pores in the surface.
  • Timing: 24-48 hours before a storm (can be much longer if using a quality additive)

POST-TREATMENT APPLICATION

Post-treatment applications are a viable replacement for rock salt, treated salt and bagged sidewalk products. This application is done after your plows have finished and you need to address any remaining residual snow and ice. 

  • Goal: Blast liquids with pressure to reach the surface.
  • Timing: As soon as plows are finished.

INTERSTORM APPLICATION

Interstorm applications can be necessary for winter events that are exceptionally long or wet. Plan to have pre-treatment applied and dried before the rain begins. And then reapply as falling precipitation turns to freezing rain or snow to prevent icing over. For lengthy winter storms, multiple applications are helpful, just like when using road salt or other solid de-icers.

  • Goal: “Refresher” application to keep surface protected from formation of ice or snowpack.
  • Timing: Around the time rain turns to freezing rain or halfway through a long duration snow event.

Brine Makers

The most important step in succeeding with liquid de-icing is a proper source for quality brine. Brine may be available for purchase locally, but the most cost-efficient method is to mix and store your own brine with VSI Brine Makers.

VSI Legacy Brine Maker

The Legacy Series Brine Maker is the heart of your brine operation. With production up to 3,500 gallons, this unit will keep your brine tanks stocked all winter, so you will always be prepared. It comes with smart-connected technology to digitally track your brine salinity from your smartphone or tablet. VSI Stainless Batch Brine Maker is loaded with salt from a skid loader or wheeled loader, making it very efficient.

Features:

  • 220 Single Phase 5HP Electric Motor: Provides plenty of power to spin the 2” Banjo pump that it is paired to. Pump is self-priming so drawing from storage tanks is a breeze. This motor lets you keep the shop air clean and is quiet enough to have a conversation next to it. Honda gas pump is also available.
  • Built-in Electronic Salinity Indicator: Easy to see when a batch is ready to be pumped to your storage tanks or truck tanks. No more dipping in the tank and using a hydrometer to examine the brine.
  • Full tube fork pockets: Easy to maneuver both pieces with fork pockets that can be accessed from the front or the back. If you need to move your brine maker you can be confident it will be a breeze.
  • Stainless Construction: Brine Maker and Batch Tank are both made from Stainless Steel for long lasting performance and corrosion resistance.
  • Built-in filter: Filters the brine from the brine maker and storage tanks going to the sprayer. Any debris in the salt or animals that may end up in the brine maker will be caught in the filter.
  • Air Purge: Uses compressed air to clear the loading hose of product before you disconnect the hose from the sprayer. Almost no wasted product and keeps the equipment and floor cleaner.
  • Manifold System with Three Connections: A set of connections and valves so you can load and draw from storage tank, additive tank, and water storage tank.
