Western Tornado Pre-Wet System
Use Less Salt And Accelerate Melting
The new Western pre-wet system accessory allows the operator to pre-wet material with a brine solution just before it hits the spinner. This provides two distinct advantages over dry application. Pre-wetting salt begins a chemical reaction in the salt which accelerates melting. Pre-wet granules also bounce less when hitting the pavement for greater material control. Studies have proven application rates can be reduced by 20% – 30% when pre-wetting salt with liquids. Get more jobs done faster, saving time and money.
- Available for all Tornado models manufactured after Feb 2016
- 25 gallon poly tank capacities
- 7′ and 8′ models can accept up to (4) 25 gallon tanks
- Corrosion-resistant protected enclosure for pump, electronics and valves
TWO CONTROL OPTIONS
The popular electric Striker hopper spreader control (shown) already includes a pre-wet accessory button which provides simple on/off operation, allowing the operator to choose when to apply brine while spreading. The flow rate is set manually using the valve in the pump housing.
Additional In-Cab Control option
For operators who want additional flow control from inside the cab, a separate in-cab control option is available, featuring a flow control dial and warning lights that alert the operator of a clog, or if the tanks are empty.
