Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS AGGREGATE FOR DEICING A SURFACE AND/OR REMOVAL OF SNOW THEREFROM
Abstract:
The objection of the invention is a method for deicing and/or removal of snow from a surface. In the method at least one crystalline substance is brought to impact with the ice and/or snow with such force that said at least one crystalline substance upon impact with the ice and/or snow breaks up the ice and/or snow mechanically and heat energy being released in the impact vaporises at least the broken up ice and/or snow into the air into water vapor. The objection of the invention is also an apparatus aggregate for deicing and/or removal of snow from a surface. The apparatus aggregate (6) includes: - at least one crystal container (1) for at least one crystalline substance - at least one nozzle (4) connected to said at least one crystal container (1) - at least one power unit (3) for bringing the at least one crystalline substance from the at least one crystal container (1) into said at least one nozzle (4) and out therefrom for bringing the at least one crystalline substance to impact with ice and/or snow with such force that said at least one crystalline substance upon impact with the ice and/or snow breaks up the ice and/or snow mechanically and heat energy being released in the impact vaporises at least the broken up ice and/or snow into the air into water vapor.
