[Satnews] Walton De-Ice announces that more than 190 of its new-generation heating units have been deployed as upgrades by its North American broadcast, cable, and satellite customers to their existing De-Icing systems over the past 12 months.
NBC Universal, Starz, and many other leading satellite operator and teleport facilities are among the numerous broadcast and cable operators who have upgraded their Walton De-Ice systems recently by swapping in Walton’s new dual surface igniter heaters to replace older pilot igniter models, according to the company.

Customers have been enjoying great success with these upgrades to their Walton De-Ice Plenum, Snow Shield, and Ice Quake systems,” said Ray Powers, VP Sales & Marketing for Walton Enterprises, Inc. “The new heater upgrades to existing De-Ice systems are in addition to the numerous purchases of complete new antenna De-Icing systems such as our unique Plenum Hot Air De-Icing, Snow Shield, and Ice Quake systems this year by major global TV networks, top cable MSOs, and satellite players."
