Products Overview

Walton De-Ice products include Passive and Heated systems for a wide variety of requirements and antenna systems, from small to large.

De-Ice System

The original de-icing systemincludes a behind the antenna plenum (enclosure) which is heated with hot air from either liquid propane, natural gas or electric heating units. These systems are for antennas ranging in size from 3.7-meter to 32-meters in diameter. This is the original de-icing system originated over 40 years ago.

Ice Quake System

The ultimate power-efficient deicer

The Ice Quake system (U.S. patent) enhances the reliability of the Snow Shield systems by a factor of 185 percent.
The Ice Quake System also acts as a Rain Shield to prevent water from sheeting on the antenna reflective surface causin rain fade on a Ku or Ka band antenna.
• Huge - i.e. up to 100X - electric bill savings compared to conventional systems
• No need for high power conduit, trenching, switch gear costs
• Automatic moisture and temperature monitoring and control system

Snow Shield

Keeps Snow and Ice off dishes

The Snow Shield Cover is designed for antennas in size from 0.6 meters to 6.3-meters in diameter. The Snow Shield consists of PTFE coated material, which is virtually invisible to RF, stretched over the satellite antenna. The Snow Shield can be used as a passive, Ice Quake, or heat system that can be added for a higher level of protection.
• Slicks off snow - hydrophobic - to prevent snow and ice buildup
• Passive Snow Shield cover option or combined with a heater - to become an Ice Quake
• Seals in hot air - enhancing heater performance

Rain Quake

Minimize signal loss due to Rain Fade

• Reduce data lost - by 20X or more - compared to antennas without protection
• Prevent water from sheeting on your antenna surface - causing Ka-Band or Ku-Band rain fade - from VSATs to large antennas

Solar Cover

The Solar Cover system can also be added to keep the temperature within the cavity the same as the outside temperature to help reduce the movement of the reflective surface during day light hours.
