Power House P500 Ice Eater
It typically ships within 2 business days (more...)
Status: Ships Direct
- The Environmentally Friendly Ice Eater P500 is designed to prevent ice from forming around boats, marinas, docks, and piers as well as effectively melting existing ice by breaking the surface with a continuous current of warmer bottom water
- The Ice Eater's propeller draws up warmer subsurface water and deflects it to the surface creating a constant circulation of warmer water that prevents ice formation
- The design of the Ice Eater's venturi shroud (housing) with outwardly flared ends draws warmer water from greater depths than other conventional de-icers
- The shroud is submersible below the surface either vertically or angled from vertical
- A set of mounting holes at opposed positions on the flange allows the lines to be attached
- Ice Eaters are shipped complete with suspension lines
- It can be taken out of the box, hung in place and plugged in
- Ice Eater de-icers are custom designed and engineered for maximum performance
- Powerhouse Ice Eaters do not use oil for lubrication
- Ice Eaters use an Environmentally Friendly, synthetic lubricating fluid which is Non-Toxic, Biodegradable and Non-Bio-accumulating
- The design of the Ice Eater's venturi shroud (housing) with outwardly flared ends draws warmer water from greater depths than other conventional de-icers.
- Energy efficient Ice Eater's will agitate more water than any de-icer on the market today
- Designed to agitate fresh or salt water at maximum efficiency in all climatic conditions.
- Ice Eater will melt existing ice
- Ice Eater may be hung from a pier or boat.
- Two to three feet is the average operating depth.
- Performance certified tested at our facility for proper output and leaks before shipment.
- The Optional Thermostat turns Ice Eater on when needed and is ideal for unattended application (Sold Separately)
