Some agencies have been using liquids for a number of years and are now implementing various advanced techniques. Among the new techniques being tried are liquid blends; using two different chlorides and adding carbohydrate liquids to brines; using advanced systems to ensure trucks are loaded correctly with the right materials and the right quantities; and using liquids to create slurries at high pre-wetting rates.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, you will be better able to:
Identify the cost benefits of using blended liquids.
Explain the environmental impacts of some anti-icing and deicing techniques.
Evaluate the research findings regarding the use of liquids.
