Prevention of ice formation
How to prevent the formation of frazil and ice in winter?
The formation of frazil and ice in winter can quickly become problematic and compromise the efficiency of your operations.
For example, municipal water supplies, nuclear power plant cooling systems, as well as access to water supply to fire departments can be compromised by the formation of ice or frazil that forms on the surface of the water. Frazil can build up on the grids and seriously block the water intakes.
Municipal water intakes and water intakes for industrial cooling system.
The installation of deicing system near the pumps or in front of the grid allow to operate despite extreme cold without obstructions.
Water catchment basins for fire services
A Bubble Tubing® system creates an opening in the ice allowing access to a large volume of water quickly.
