Introducing AMP

The industry’s most innovative salt brine enhancer for deicing / anti-icing:

  Accelerate. Maintain. Protect. 

Greeley, CO:  Today, EnviroTech Services Inc., a leader in deicing products for more than 28 years, has announced the release of a cutting edge new salt brine enhancer that can make roads safer while reducing the costs to accomplish that.  EnviroTech’s new AMP product helps to accelerate ice melt and thereby provides drivers with improved traction on the road, maintaining safety.  AMP not only melts ice faster, but it helps the salt brine stick to the road which maintains this protection for a longer period of time thereby reducing application frequency required which lower costs significantly for large Municipalities and commercial operations.  And studies have shown that the addition of AMP helped to reduce corrosion by 70% compared to salt brine alone.

In addition to the enhancer AMP, EnviroTech has formulated a liquid pre-blended solution called Better Brine which is an optimized mix of Salt Brine and AMP.  This is ideal for those customers that do not have a briner or the capability to mix solutions on site. 

EnviroTech has tested the product for a full winter season and received strong positive customer feedback including one from Don Nelson of Glacier Snow Management in Fargo North Dakota:

“Glacier has used EnviroTech products for 10 years now and have always been impressed with their products and new innovations. This year we purchased a brine maker and we are currently using brine for anti-icing and supplemental deicing.  Our concern with using brine in our geographic location is with the extreme low temperatures we deal with (the possibility of refreeze).  This dilemma kept us from going to straight liquids for some time now.  But, after spiking our brine with 10% Amp, we were truly impressed with the results.  We were even using the brine for deicing at temps down to 10 degrees below zero air temperature. Amp gave us the peace of mind to use brine for more the just anti-icing.”

AMP Application Rate Advantage

The concept of product development is pretty simple. How do we either improve on an existing product or create something superior that is a replacement product? Less simple, however, is the process of testing, documenting, and verifying the improvements sought. This can be particularly tricky for consumers who can find themselves comparing performance claims between products they may not fully understand. Add to that the consideration for managing costs associated with switching to a new product as well as ensuring apple to apple cost comparisons, and the introduction of new products can feel more burdensome than exciting.

Dust Control Decision Making: Calcium Chloride vs Magnesium Chloride

As a transportation, site, or project manager, selecting a dust control product is just one of many tasks you’d like to be as efficient as possible in making. With the proliferation of both Calcium and Magnesium chloride, it can seem as though these products are interchangeable, which reduced decision making to just pricing and availability. This belief can be reinforced if you are working with a company that only has access to one supply source, as they intend to simplify your thought process while buying. But if you want to maximize your performance and cost effectiveness, it’s worth going one step further in understanding how these two different products work. Here’s a quick guide you can use.

Deicing Standard Operating Procedure: Start Way Before The Storm

A well-prepared road department means the techs checked the deicing equipment top-to-bottom, replaced worn spreaders, blades, and replenished engine fluids. All ready to go, right? Wrong.

A good record-keeping system from the last couple of years can tell you a lot about the amount of product used, and the effectiveness of past applications and communication practices. Cost is also a big project to take on early to work with your suppliers like EnviroTech to gauge the cost of product and explore new products that may serve your needs better while being more cost-effective.

Mag-Chloride: How & When to Use It as an Anti-icing Agent

For those entities that use magnesium chloride as their deicing agent of choice, the timing of mag-chloride application is critical. For instance, magnesium chloride must not be applied before the early stages of a storm. The key is – the road surface has to be wet for the magnesium chloride to work effectively. Instead of applying the product pre-emptively, spend the time before the expected storm mobilizing so that the magnesium chloride can be applied as soon as the storm strikes and the roads are wet.

Three Things to Consider When Creating Your 'Standard Operating Procedure' for Deicing

Snow is already falling in the mountains, and winter could be arriving sooner than expected given the recent weather patters. Now is the time to prepare, and creating a ‘Standard Operating Procedure’ (SOP) is a perfect place to start if you haven’t already. Keep in mind that your SOP should be specific to your business.

However, there are many other factors and situations to keep in mind while you are planning.
