Harmoney Deicing’s Winter Sentry Calcium Chloride Brine is a renewable resource that provides excellent melting power. Ready to use as a liquid, our Calcium Chloride Brine can be used for pre-wetting, anti-icing, and deicing.

With a freeze point of -20°F, Calcium Chloride Brine is a natural blend of calcium, sodium, and magnesium chloride for fighting snow and ice in any conditions. It bonds to the road longer and provides for a multi-day residual.

Benefits

 

• Cost effective
• Easy to store
• Reduces the number of applications
• Reduces quantity used
• Prevents ice and snow adhesion, making removal easier
• Eco-friendly
• Less corrosive
• Reduces bounce and scatter


Applications

Anti-Icing

• Apply initially at 30-45 gallons per acre
• Apply when pavement temperatures are at or below 32°F
• Straight stream nozzles

Benefits for anti-icing applications include:

• Prevents snow and ice from bonding to the pavement, allowing for easier removal
• Lowers maintenance cost by reducing the amount of applications and quantities needed
• Freeze point to -6°F

Deicing

• Apply initially at 45-80 gallons per lane mile, depending on accumulation, adjusting the amount as needed to meet local conditions
• Apply using stream nozzles
• Allow to penetrate the accumulation of snow/ice, then remove as usual

Benefits for deicing applications include: 

• Eats through hard-pack conditions when spread along the pavement
• Breaks the bond between the pavement and snow/ice, allowing for easier removal

Pre-Wetting

• Apply at 5-10 gallons per ton of salt at the spinner
• Adjust amount as needed to meet local conditions

Benefits for pre-wetting applications include:

• The blend enhances the de-icing performance of the dry salt
• Creates a “hot load” accelerating the melting process
• Reduces bounce and scatter losses by 4%
• Uses less salt and achieves the same results

Note: All suggested usage levels should be considered as starting points and adjusted based on operator experience to meet local conditions, such as current air temperature, precipitation, and traffic volume.
