Anti icing Airport Runway & Concrete Anti-icing Potassium Acetate & Deicer Snow melting or Thawing Agent Sodium Acetate Granules Manufacturers
De-icing is defined as removal of existing, snow ice, frost, etc., from a surface. It includes both mechanical (plowing or scraping) or chemical (application of salt or other ice melting chemicals) methods.
Anti-icing is defined as the pretreatment of a roadway, sidewalk or parking lot with ice melting chemicals before a storm, to prevent or delay the formation of ice, or the adhesion of ice and snow.
For Anti icing in airports Potassium Acetate Solution is generally sprayed on the surface. Deicing is done by Snow Melting Sodium Acetate Granules Xtra TM Sodium Acetate Deicer or Anti-ice or Snow melting Snow thawing agent is made of organic salts for melting the ice and snow in airstrip, parking apron and taxiway or airport runway. Snow Thawing Agent for Airport is researched and approved environment-friendly snow-melting agent for melting the ice and snow in airstrip, parking apron and taxiway in very short time. It is in accordance with standard of AMS1431D.
Potassium Acetate is safe and non-corrosive salt. It has minimal impact on environment and on aquatic life. Its eutectic point is -60C or -76F. It is classed as safe for concrete steel and vegetation. These high-end melters meet the strict FAA standards for use at airports. They are ideal for pre-wetting, ant-icing or de-icing applications.
In USA airport ramp and runway deicers should be certified to airport approved specifications. SAE-AMS1431, "COMPOUND, SOLID DEICING/ANTI-ICING RUNAWAYS AND TAXIWAYS", was adopted on 23-JAN-95 for use by the Department of Defense (DoD). It Specifies BOD, TOD, biodegradation, Aquatic Toxicity Trace Contaminants Appearance, pH, Flash Point, Chloride Content, Storage Stability, Effect on Aircraft Metals, Runway Concrete Scaling Resistance etc. Potassium Acetate fits these specifications.
Potassium Acetate is environmentally friendly. It does not harm plant and aquatic life. It has BOD and COD is low. It has a very negligible effect on aquatic life. It is tolerated by mammals as indicated by Oral rat LD50: 3250 mg/kg.
Name Eutectic Temp. Effective Temp. Comments: Pros & Cons Potassium acetate CH3COOK (Anti icing) -60C or -76F @ -30C or -22F @@ Safe for concrete, steel & vegetation. Used as Anti icing spray solution.
XtraTM Potassium Acetate may be used both as an anti icing and as deicer. Xtra Potassium Acetate Solution 50% is required to be spread at the rate of around 25gm/sq.m or 0.5lb/100 sq .ft for ice at freezing point 0C or 32F. It is advisable to apply it as an anti icing or deicer just before the storm. This will prevent the ice bonds from.
You will need to apply again when new accumulation shows first tendency to bond and plow once bond is broken. It will save a lot of labor if we apply Deicer and plow away before the ice bond is formed.
Storage & Handling
Potassium Acetate must be stored in leak proof bags. Check for the condition of the bags on receipt and do provide a double cover to a torn bag. Avoid exposure to moisture and heat.
Potassium Acetate is offered in 25kg (55 lbs) or 50kg (110 lbs) bags or Jumbo bags or as desired by the buyer.
