St. Louis, MO, January 04, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- BSR Services, St. Louis’ largest locally owned and operated snow and ice management provider, recently purchased new liquid salt application machinery plus two tanker trucks that will enable faster and more environmentally-friendly winter treatment methods.
BSR Services purchased the BrineXtreme, one of Henderson Product’s top liquid salt machines, to help handle the upcoming winter season. The BrineXtreme makes nearly 6,000 gallons of liquid salt per hour, and the company purchased several 3,000 gallon tanks for storing the liquid deicers.
The product is spread using the company’s new 4,000 gallon tanker trucks that can spray 40 feet wide for time-saving service. Liquid salt can be applied two to three days prior to a storm while still maintaining its effectiveness.
Liquid salt pre-treatment is beneficial during extremely cold conditions. Since salt reacts slowly when temperatures are below 10 degrees, spraying liquid salt jump starts the melting process and causes the salt to react more quickly. This method also enables BSR Services to use less salt and stay more cost-efficient.
“By adding this new product to our snow fighting arsenal, it better prepares our crews since it can be sprayed even before winter weather hits our area,” said BSR Services’ president Carl Bolm. “We particularly like the fact that it’s better for our environment plus allows us to be more proactive when battling wintertime weather.”
Founded in 1984, BSR Services is a proactive risk management expert that focuses on snow-specific commercial property service. The company is located at 2340 Verna Ave. in Maryland Heights, Mo. For more information, call (314) 569-3005.
