The Ankara Protekol Road 3.5 km one year onwards – demonstrating how DEVI heating cables keep roads safe and open during winter
Just over a year ago the Ankara Municipality had a DEVI ice and snow melting system installed on the new Protocol Road. No less than 245,000m of DEVIsnow™ heating cables, 18 thermostats DEVIreg™ 850 and 56 ground sensors were installed to be ready for winter conditions.
The DEVI system installed in Ankara works fully automated and based on temperature and humidity it decides if heating is necessary turning it on or off. This winter we finally saw the system in action om the Ankara Protocol Road project when the temperature fell below 4°C and it started to snow. Immediately the sensors recorded the drop of temperature in combination with the humidity of the snow and the heating cables under the road were activated keeping the road save and operational.
When snowing stopped and the roads were out of danger of freezing, the sensors communicated this to the DEVIreg™ thermostats and the electrical heating cables were put off again. Simple, safe and effective.
There is no longer the need to send out a brigade of snow removers and salt sprinklers to keep the road open and clean the it from snow. The DEVI electrical heating cables cleaned the road of snow and ice immediately when it started.
DEVI’s winter solutions increase priceless safety on the roads during the winter and substantially lower costs for cleaning operations. DEVI outdoor heating system is a one-time investment that, once you have installed it, can be used for decades. Electrical cables provided by DEVI have a 20-year warranty. DEVI guaranties total reliability of its outdoor heating solutions.
