Kasco is the Leader in Ice Control Engineering

Kasco De-icers are perfect for preventing costly ice damage due to jacking/lifting, ice expansion, and winter-kill conditions.

Kasco De-Icers are industrial strength and designed and engineered to withstand the harshest marine environments making Kasco THE LEADER IN ICE CONTROL ENGINEERING!

Check out the Kasco De-Icing Guide

Kasco Marine, Inc. offers several sizes, models, and mounting options of De-Icers to accommodate almost every application and condition.

With sizes of 1/2, 3/4, and 1hp and units available in 120V or 240V, Kasco De-Icers easily fit your location and electrical requirements. Kasco De-Icers can be suspended by ropes, mounted on an optional Universal Dock Mount, or attached to an optional Horizontal Float for operation in many conditions. Also, optional De-Icer Controllers (C-10 and C-20) can be added to the De-Icing system to help control electric bills.

* Small bodies of water, the Great Lakes, and extreme northern climates may see less open water areas.

Each De-Icer boasts the following staples of Kasco equipment:

  • Longer-life top and bottom ball bearings
  • Environmentally friendly oil-filled motor with a hard-face internal mechanical seal and external lip seal for protection against leaks.
  • Flood oil lubricated for excellent heat dissipation.
  • Highly efficient, lower power consumption than competitive equipment
  • Superior dependability in salt-water or other corrosive environments. All external metal motor, float, and hardware components are of stainless steel composition and protected by a sacrificial zinc anode.
  • Requires minimal maintenance. We recommend cleaning the stainless steel motor housing once or twice per year and replacing the sacrificial zinc anode when visibly corroded.
  • Extremely efficient and productive operation generating excellent flow per kW of power used
  • ETL listed to stringent UL and CSA Safety Standards
  • U.P.S. Shippable
  • Made with pride in the U.S.A.
