  • Abstract:
    In early February, 2009, the Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) installed a Monroe Slurry Maker on one of its 2009 Volvo Wheelers (see Photos 1 and 2). This truck was equipped with a Henderson Utility Body. An 18 gallon per minute spool was added to the existing hydraulic system on truck as recommended by the Slurry Maker manufacturer. The Slurry Maker installation took two days to complete at an approximate cost of $1,000. The truck was put in service the first week of February and the Slurry Maker was utilized for approximately 10 storm events. The intent of the Slurry Maker is to crush large particle size salt to a much smaller size. When this smaller salt is combined with significant liquid (salt brine); 50 gallons per ton or more, the resulting slurry-like material stays on the road better.
