Kasco Marine Impeller De-Icers
Protect your docks, boats and submerged structures with a Kasco Marine de-icer. Benefits Kasco Marine de-icers, also known as circulators or agitators, are available at CanadianPond.ca, your Kasco Marine dealer in Canada. Winter ice can damage your dock to the point of complete destruction. The thicker the ice gets, the more it also expands. This can literally destroy your dock. When the water level in a lake changes in the winter, the ice surrounding your posts can tear them off the sea floor. The ice clinging to the structure shows how securely the expanding ice was attached. Kasco Marine de-icers are specially designed to be suspended from a dock or boat to prevent damage caused by ice expansion and water level variations. This animated video illustrates two of the ways you can position your de-icer. Kasco de-icers use a propeller system that creates a vertical or horizontal movement of water to prevent ice from forming near docks, boat shelters and shorelines. The de-icer performs by moving warmer, denser water upward from the bottom of the pond or lake and circulates the water upward to the surface and sideways creating an agitation that reduces or eliminates ice build-up creating a large ice-free surface. Installation with a horizontal float or with a universal dock mount are options that allow you to precisely direct the movement of the water to strategically and precisely de-ice a particular structure. Ideal for fresh or salt water applications. How to choose your deicer Choosing the right de-icer is easy, refer to the ice opening chart (pdf) to find the best model and application kit for your needs. If Kasco de-icers do not meet your needs, visit the Thawline Linear De-Icers page. All Kasco de-icers are also available in 240V and/or 50 Hertz for the European market, call us for more information.Kasco Marine De-Icing Chart (PDF) Timers & Control Box Options Controlling your Kasco Marine de-icer with a thermostat or timer is a great way to save energy and extend the life of your de-icer by operating it only when needed. The C-10 Thermostat allows you to determine an accurate temperature under which your unit starts.The C20 Thermostat and Timer Control Unit combines the schedule of the day with the temperature at which you want your de-icer to operate.

The de-icing area should be well marked with a sign to warn all persons of the hazard. To be used with all types of de-icing systems. Tech Sheet (PDF) Owner's Manual (PDF) Maintenance of Kasco Marine Units (PDF) Installation Suspension with ropes - Vertical position - For de-icing in a circle shape All Kasco de-icers include 2 x 20-foot ropes to suspend the de-icer under the dock or boat. These ropes are included in the de-icer box. Hang the system vertically on either side of the structure at a depth of 4 to 5 feet from the water surface. A vertical installation produces a circular de-iced surface. Another possibility is to attach the de-icer to each side of the boat with the suspension ropes so that the de-icer follows the tide or water level. Horizontal float mount – Horizontal position – Produces long elongated pattern when no dock is available You can also use the optional horizontal float set to create an elongated ice free space. The de-icer installed under the horizontal float can be positioned at different angles for added versatility. Ideal for : Shallow water Places where there are water level fluctuations such as: a tide or in a large lake where the waves are high. Sites to be de-iced where there are no docks or structures. Installation with universal dock support - Angled position - For elongated de-icing The Universal Dock Support is made from thermal plastic components, corrosion protected steel and stainless steel to withstand the worst marine conditions. A stainless steel rod of 1″ diameter and 10 feet in length must be supplied by the purchaser to attach the de-icer and dock and structure mounting kit. With the new Easy Lock handle, adjustments in the water are child's play.This option is ideal for creating an angle at the de-icer. It gives a very good precision of the surfaces to be de-iced. It is often easier to de-ice a boat by installing the de-icer at the bow and angling it towards the stern of the boat. If the water movement is directed towards the shore or a retaining wall, the water current will be directed on each side of the shore or wall to create a "T" shaped de-icing section. Industrial Dock Mount Kasco's industrial dock support, made of corrosion-resistant metal, requires 1.5" I.D. stainless steel pipe threaded at both ends and measuring a maximum of 10 feet (not included). It is manufactured to meet the most stringent environmental requirements. Moreover, thanks to its unique design, you can easily modify the angle, depth and positioning of the de-icer.

Thawline Bubbler Deicing System
This Thawline de-icing system uses our Bubble Tubing® technology, which has been well tested over the past 20 years. Our Thawline de-icing systems available online are standard types. Contact us for customized systems! Benefits The principle behind de-icing involves the physics behind the relationship between water temperature and the depth at which the diffuser is placed. When air bubbles are created at the bottom of the basin and rise to the surface, they drag warmer water to the surface, preventing the formation of ice. This principle, combined with the rapid rise of bubbles that create water movement on the surface, provides an effective de-icing solution even in the coldest of conditions. The flexibility of the Thawline's diffuser hose allows for more precise targeting of the sections you wish to de-ice. For example, long and narrow corridors can be de-iced over long lengths to allow the passage of barges or boats. It is also easier to de-ice without opening a large area in the ice when using Thawline, since those can increase the risk of accidents in winter. Read our case study realized with our Thawline system : Click here Client testimonial: " I installed my new system (with cabinet) a short distance away from the cottage. The new system runs without any residual noise or vibration being heard in the cottage-I’m so happy!! " Thawline de-icing systems use Bubble Tubing®, and are powered by the appropriate compressor for the job. These systems are efficient and reliable at any scale. They have no mechanical, moving or electrical parts in the water. The systems are designed for both fresh and salt water applications. Technical Specifications The Thawline Linear Icebreaking System de-ices along the shoreline, around boat shelters, between rows of docks, in areas where you want to eliminate the danger of property damage due to the uplift, compression and expansion of ice. - Unlike propeller de-icer technology, which creates a large de-iced section, Thawline creates a thinner, and therefore more precise, de-iced area along the targeted section. - CFD (computer modeling validation possible for large projects). - Avoids having to remove and store your pleasure boats during the winter, saving time and money. - Allows for great precision and flexibility in installation. - Can be used all year round to de-ice in winter and improve water quality in summer. - No electricity or machinery touching the water. - Causes less condensation compared to a de-icer with a propeller. - Generally saves electricity compared to other types of de-icers.

Custom-made legs available upon request.(**) Several OctoAir-10 can be stacked one on top of the other to facilitate transportation on pallets. (***) Unit manufactured in SS316 is also available upon request. Tech Sheet OctoAir (PDF) The OctoAir-60 was designed and developed specifically for large scale aeration and industrial de-icing projects. With an air flow rate of up to 75 CFM, 300 feet of ¾” Bubble Tubing® contained in the structure of the OctoAir-60 allows for greater oxygen transfer performance. The diffuser is designed to allow for feeding air into the ¾” Bubble Tubing® from both ends. Applications that require a diffuser of industrial strength, corrosion resistance, easy manoeuvrability, and high efficiency will be well served with the OctoAir-60. Operation, Maintenance and Safety Compressed air is pushed through airline feeder hose to the OctoAir™ diffuser. Microbubbles are simultaneously released through the microscopic holes along the entire length of Bubble Tubing®. The constant release of fine bubbles allow for a high oxygen transfer rate in water while creating a significant ascending current that moves warmer and denser water upwards against the inner ice above. The OctoAir also modifies the water's density by introducing more air. This reduction in density, due to the regular output of bubbles, produces an optimal warm water circulation and thus helps melt the ice. In situations in which the OctoAir is already in place, it presents a reliable and efficient prevention of ice accumulation, even in the coldest of temperatures. There are no moving parts in the water, which is very efficient and cost effective.Please check with the authorities to make sure that adding de-icers is authorized in your municipality. The thin ice and open area should be well marked out with a sign to warn people of danger in winter. This is to be done with every type of de-icer and defroster.Cleaning your diffusers: OctoAirs require Bio-Purge to clean the diffuser once per year, depending on water conditions. The diffuser remains in the water for the duration of the cleaning, as the Bio-Purge is poured into the airline hose from the compressor. Maintenance has never been easier!
