Automatic Anti-icing System - Short Span
Index: 2
1219
(1998)
1.5
(1998)
Typical automatic anti-icing system consists of a control system, chemical storage tank, distribution lines, pump, and nozzles. Pump and control hardware replaced every five years. For a short span system ranging from 120 to 180 feet. O&M includes system maintenance, utilities, materials, and labor.
Automatic Anti-icing System - Long Span
Index: 2
1238 - 380
(1999)
1.2 - 22.7
(1999)
Typical automatic anti-icing system consists of a control system, chemical storage tank, distribution lines, pump, and nozzles. Pump and control hardware replaced every 5 years. For a long span system ranging from 320 feet to greater than 1/2 mile. O&M includes system maintenance, utilities, materials, and labor. The high O&M cost is for a much larger system; hence, the need for a greater amount of materials.
