Safety products: Spray system for anti-icing and deicing applications
Safety equipment: SnowEx introduces performance upgrades and new options for Liqui Maxx spray system.
Safety products: The SnowEx® Liqui Maxx™ spray system has been enhanced for greater durability, performance and user friendliness, and now offers an electric start for the gas-powered deluxe model. Available with multiple tank sizes to fit a wide array of vehicles, the purpose-built Liqui Maxx system provides exceptional versatility for commercial anti-icing and deicing applications.
The customizable modular design of the Liqui Maxx allows snow and ice professionals to select their desired tank and pump platforms to fit their specific needs. The Liqui Maxx is available in tank sizes of 300, 500, 750 and 1,250 gallons. The elliptical polyethylene tank design provides a low center of gravity and includes a sump for complete draining. A filtered bottom-fill port can handle all brine solutions.
Powered by a 5.5-horsepower engine, a new dry-seal centrifugal pump has a low-water shutoff switch that prevents the pump from running dry, ensuring long-lasting seal performance. The cold-weather tested valve bank includes durable internal seals and covered valve indicators. Added for operator convenience and to help conserve fuel, an electric start for the HFD-200EX deluxe model allows users to start and stop the engine and operate the choke right from the cab.
Newly offered for the deluxe system, a hydraulic motor driven pump includes a durable dry seal with low water control valve for run dry protection and a spool valve for consistent pressure and flow.
Customers have a choice between two pump controls. The standard control has three-zone spray capability with on/off toggle switches. With both the standard and deluxe controls, the driver-side, center-lane and passenger-side zones can be managed independently. The deluxe model enables the sprayer to automatically adjust the flow rate with speed input as needed, and GPS speed sensors are optional to calculate the ideal application rate.
The Liqui Maxx has a 98-inch-wide boom with all-polymer construction for superior corrosion resistance, as well as an easy clean-out system for the nozzles. The boom comes standard with a 2-inch receiver mount, while an adjustable height receiver is optional. Spraying capacity ranges from 10 to 60 gallons per acre depending on vehicle speed. The system is covered by a two-year warranty.
