An experimental investigation was carried out in the UTIAS SUBSONIC WIND TUNNEL OF THE APPLICABILITY OF AN AIR CURTAIN TO PROTECT OUTDOOR ELECTRIC POWER INSTALLATIONS FROM WIND-BORNE SALT SPRAY. The salt emanates from an elevated roadway that is salted in the winter, being thrown up by passing traffic. The salt was simulated by a tracer gas Helium, the concentrations of which were measured in the region to be protected. The investigation, although not definitive, indicates that reductions of the order of 70 in contamination can be achieved. Additional design studies and experimental work would be needed to arrive at firm conclusions concerning cost and performance. Author
