File Size:5MB


This document is a compilation of the equipment used by the Iowa Department of Transportation in its efforts to combat snow and ice with liquid deicing chemicals. The document is divided into three areas, brine making and storage, prewetting systems and anti-icing and specialty equipment. Each of the areas will provide readers with a historical look at the equipment either purchased from suppliers or developed by maintenance staff to meet the needs of our winter operations. Some of the earlier equipment used to support our use of liquid deicing chemicals is still in use today while some of the newer equipment may be available in only a few locations around the state.
