VALE Engineering’s vast knowledge of spraying equipment and liquid application means the company is in an unrivalled position to design and develop liquid de-icing and anti-icing products. This method of controlling ice and snow is fast becoming more common. VALE Engineering now produce two tractor mounted de-icing and anti-icing liquid sprayers. Ideal for cycleways and pedestrian areas.
Liquid de-icing sprayers can be used on, around or adjacent to, any structure or surface that might be susceptible to either corrosion or staining. For example: bridges and flyovers where mild steel reinforcement is at risk of corrosion; street furniture and paving where unrefined grit can permanently stain the surface; and vulnerable historic structures, including listed buildings, where rock salt may damage the surface integrity of the building’s exterior.
VALE Engineering’s two tractor mounted Liquid De-icing Sprayers are capable of applying various liquid de-icing and anti-icing products. VALE Engineering’s Liquid De-icing Sprayers must not to be confused with agricultural tractor-mounted sprayers which are often fitted with non-compatible components and calibrated to work at much lower application rates.
For ease of use, VALE Engineering’s tractor mounted Liquid De-icing Sprayers are supplied with either standard category 1 or 2 three-point linkage. This allows VALE Engineering’s De-icing Sprayers to work with the vast majority of tractors, without modification, as well as being powered by the tractor PTO (power take off).
