Deicer Anti-icing Snow melting or Thawing Agent Calcium Chloride 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.
Ice melting products can help facility managers keep their buildings safe and approachable. Good snow and ice control is definitely a large part of slip-and-fall prevention. Not using deicer or anti icing snow melting compounds is a costly error. Do not over use but do use it and use the right type of de icer.
Calcium Chloride Snow Melting
Snow melting compounds do not melt ice in their solid form. The solid must first penetrate and dissolve. The lower freeze point of the brine breaks the bond between the ice and the sidewalk.
Calcium chloride is a popular choice for de-icing the streets, driveways, and walkways. Apply calcium chloride as soon as the snow or sleet begins to fall---or before it starts if you have warning. You'll find that you'll only need smaller amounts of the calcium chloride, and its anti-icing properties will be more effective.
It is a hygroscopic and absorbs moisture. This moisture absorption is exothermic accompanied by release of heat and results in initial melting of snow. Calcium Chloride brine formed by this snow melting lowers the melting point of ice and more of it melts.
Calcium chloride is effective conditions of minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit or even worse.
Calcium Chloride melts ice faster and remains active for longer, preventing re-occurrence of icing. It is effective at much lower temperatures.
Calcium Chloride is offered as
Calcium Chloride Anhydrous
Calcium Chloride monohydrate
Calcium Chloride Dihydrate
Calcium Chloride Solution 30%
Deicers are not intended to melt every bit of precipitation and should always be used sparingly. For Calcium chloride, it usually takes less than half an ounces per square feet to undercut bonded ice and snow.
Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine is better used as anti icing compound as it penetrates the pores of road surfaces and is not disturbed by traffic. Less material is needed to melt ice. Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine prevents a bond from forming between the pavement and snow and reducing the plow time. Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine is essentially non-toxic and presents no unusual hazard to people, animals, or the environment
Anti-icing with Calcium Chloride Solution is a proactive approach to snow and ice control. Treatments consist of applying the solution or pre-wetted salt to pavement before, or at the beginning of, a storm. Treatments create a barrier to prevent snow and ice from bonding to pavement. This allows accumulated snow to be pushed off the road more easily and reduces the labor cost,. Anti icing with liquid calcium chloride brine, with or without salt will result in reduced cost of deicing. It will do minimum damage to the road and pavement. It will be much cheaper to do so, than clear the ice and snow by any other snow melting method.
Due to hygroscopic nature of Calcium Chloride Solution it resists evaporation, which means longer-lasting effects, even as ice and snow melts and the solution becomes diluted. It also has heat of dilution. It is environmental friendly, cost effectiveness and easily available in small and big quantities.
Approximately 50 to 100 gallons per acre, or lane mile, is sufficient for snow melting application. When snow storms hit, correct application of calcium chloride solution or pre-wetted salt can help in keeping roads in plow-able condition. It prevents precipitation from bonding with the road surface.
Calcium Chloride (CaCl2)
Name Eutectic Temp. Effective Temp. Comments: Pros & Cons Calcium chloride CaCl2 -51C or -60F @ -29C or -20F @@ Melts ice faster than sodium chloride; Attracts moisture. Damages concrete & steel.
Xtra Calcium Chloride may be used both as an anti iceing and as deicer. Xtra Calcium Chloride 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 iceing 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
Calcium Chloride 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.
Calcium Chloride has a tendency to loosely stick to one another during storage. If the material in the bags is lumpy, then lift the bag and drop it a couple of times to loosen it. Sodium Acetate is not an environmental issue and it can be used for deicing anti-icing, even if it is exposed to moisture and caked.
Calcium Chloride is offered in 25kg (55 lbs) or 50kg (110 lbs) bags or Jumbo bags or as desired by the buyer.
Calcium Chloride Solution 30% is offered in 210 liter or 55 gallons drums or in 1000 liter 265 gallons tote.
We also offer small packing of 10 lbs 25 lbs
