In the development of anti-icing technology, the need to apply a small amount of chemical in a very uniform pattern on the roadway surface was identified. All known manufacturers of spreader equipment were contacted to develop a master list of sources of application equipment and to learn about their testing procedures. It was determined that there are no procedures in the United States for evaluating highway spreader equipment under field conditions. The German government has standards for testing spreader equipment. Also, the European equipment manufacturers have testing procedures for evaluating their own equipment. A testing procedure will be of use to agencies who wish to evaluate available equipment to integrate anti-icing technology into their snow and ice control operations.
