Abstract : This report contains outline specifications for two skid-mounted pumping units for sea-ice construction. One is a high-pressure, low-volume unit principally for confined flooding, and the other is a low-pressure, high-volume unit principally for free flooding. These units, which are self-contained and totally enclosed, are suitable for operation in air temperatures to -40 F. They are suitable for surface and above-surface operation. A suction hose or metal suction tube through the ice sheet is used to deliver water to the pumps, and distribution hose is used to deliver it to the flood area. (Author)
