Kasco D Series De-Icers

Known throughout the world for their quality, durability and effectiveness, the Kasco D-Series de-icer became a staple of the industry by tackling some fiercely challenging applications; none more well known than the outstanding performance to save trapped whales in Barrow, Alaska that inspired the major motion picture, “Big Miracle.” Today, units are installed around the world and continue to provide the best performance in ice prevention and property protection.

By moving large volumes of warm, bottom water to the surface, Kasco de-icers eliminate and prevent ice formation around boats, docks, pilings, bulk heads, or any other property you need protected from damaging ice formation.

Kasco’s unique design provides superior flow and excellent energy efficiency to solve your de-icing needs in a cost effective manner. 

The unit will also allow oxygen to enter the water in the winter providing improved water quality and habitat and helping avoid devastating winter kill of fish. 

De-Icers are available in ½, ¾, and 1HP sizes and available in 120V (60 Hz), 240V (60 Hz), or 220V (50 Hz) power configurations to fit a variety of installations and applications. Each de-icer includes two 20 ft. (6m) suspension ropes for suspension installation.

Sizes Available:

  • 2400 (KD12) -   A single 2400D unit can keep a circle of water open up to 50ft. in diameter.
  • 3400D (KD34) - A single 3400D unit can keep a circle of water open up to 75 ft. in diameter.
  • 4400D (KD44) -  A single 4400D unit can keep a circle of water open up to 90 ft. in diameter.

The table in the attached image will help you decide which de-icer unit will work best for you. Choose which temperature best describes your application and which mounting orientation you will use. Based on those decisions, you will then see how much water will be kept open with each unit size.

Sizes may vary greatly based on a number of local conditions. The above sizing guidelines are made with the following assumptions:

  • Unobstructed water
  • 200 or more acre body of water with 20 ft. (6 m.) or greater max depth
  • Water depth in de-icing area: 4 ft. (1.2 m.) or more

Mounting Options:

Suspended Operation - Kasco de-icers come complete for suspended operation either a vertical or angled position. Adjust the angle of suspension by looping one suspension rope back one or two bars on the propeller cage.

Universal Dock Mount - The universal dock mount utilizes durable, composite mounting hardware accompanied by a corrosion-resistant stainless steel pipe (pipe is customer supplied) making it a great choice for docks, piers, marinas and other waterfront property.

Flotation kit - is a superior way to create elongated patterns of water movement. Place unit less than 2 feet below the water's surface, ideal for shallow water or where dock mounting is not available. It has 5 angled mounting positions to match virtually every need.

Thermostat and timer controller: 

Thermostat and timer controllers are also available to help you save power and improve your de-icer’s performance.
