Snowmelt systems have vital roles as safety measures for air ambulance helicopter pads and on steep ramps. These systems typically operate by pumping hot antifreeze through a series of tubes under the asphalt.
In recent years snowmelt systems have also become widely used for residential driveways. Their popularity has steadily increased over the years as the population ages and the relative burden of shovelling snow becomes more difficult.
Brazed plate heat exchangers are used in these applications to separate the antifreeze from the hot water in the boiler circuit. Valutech has over 20 years experience in design selection of heat exchangers for snowmelt and can assist in the sizing of the overall snowmelt system.
