How to pick the ice melter
When the temperature starts to drop and the snow starts to fall, it's time to start thinking about ice melters. There are many different types of ice melters on the market, so how do you pick the right one for your needs? In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of ice melters and help you decide which one is best for you.
- The first thing to consider when choosing an ice melter is the temperature. Rock salt, also known as sodium chloride, is effective at melting ice at temperatures up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Calcium chloride and magnesium chloride are effective at much lower temperatures, down to negative 25 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Another important factor in choosing an ice melter is the surface it will be applied to. Rock salt can damage concrete and metal surfaces, while calcium chloride and magnesium chloride are less likely to cause damage.
- It's also important to consider potential environmental impacts. Some ice melters, like potassium chloride, are known to have a lower impact on plants and waterways.
- The application method is also important to consider. Some ice melters come in pellets or flakes, while others are available in liquid form. Liquid ice melters are often easier to apply and can start melting ice faster.
- Finally, consider the cost of the ice melter. While some may have a higher initial cost, they may also be more effective and last longer, leading to overall cost savings.
