What Started Liquid Spraying?

  • 2.1 Billion Dollars to Keep Roads Clean Nationwide - There Must be an Alternative
  • Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP)
  • Started in 1987 to Find Better Ways, Identify Products, Technology, Performance, Durability and Safety
  • Seven Different Products Where Identified
  • Two Products Anti-icing and RWIS
  • Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS)

Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP)

  • Colorado One of Seven to Participate
  • Help Develop Products to Begin Spraying
  • Manufactures came from Road Emulsions and Agriculture Sprayers
  • Kois Brothers Equipment Company had a Clean Sheet of Paper (No Influence)
  • Establish Measurement Points (Accurately)
  • Flow of Liquid, Road Speed Calibration, Nozzle Pressure and Distance

Basic Strategies

  • ANTI-ICING is a snow and ice control strategy for prevention of a STRONG bond between frozen precipitation or frost and a pavement surface by a timely and precise application of chemical freeze point depressant.
  • DE-ICING is applying a chemical freeze point depressant to the top of an accumulation of snow, ice or frost that is bonded to the pavement surface.

ANTI-ICING = PROACTIVE
DE-ICING = REACTIVE
BOTH ARE NEEDED FOR EFFECTIVE
WINTERSTORM MANAGEMENT

Conclusion of Studies

  • ANTI-ICING strategies will work with any selected chemical
  • ANTI-ICING is cost-effective under most icing conditions, particularly under light icing conditions
  • ANTI-ICING Strategies and TRAINING is the key to success of a program.
  • Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) with an anti-icing programs are efficient and effective

Results After ANTI-ICING

  • Improved Service Levels
  • Reduced Material Cost
  • Some Labor Reduction

Why labor reduction? The operators spray ahead of the storm (Proactive). The time needed once the storm hits, is reduced to fitting the pack build up on the road. You are often plowing slush and not a great pack build up!
