Using Mutual Charge Scheme to Measure Salinity of Ice
For offshore measurements in Cold Regions, salinity of ice is also a critical parameter (together with many other parameterssuchasicingtype,load,icingrateandmeltingrate)to be identiﬁed in order to optimize the performance of anti/de icing systems. Although there are some available sensory solutions in the market to measure real time salinity levels of water, however there are still not many real time techniques or solutions to measure the salinity of ice. In this research task, mutual charge transfer technique is utilized to measure the zero crossover values of different samples of ice and water with varying salt ratios. The aim of this paper is therefore to discuss the testing methodology and testing results.
