Generally, brine is a natural compound that forms in salty water lakes and oceans. On the other side, some companies specialize in the manufacturing and processing brine for home and other industrial use.
For example, brine is used for deicing roads during wintertime. Such load-full applications will require a large amount of the same. That is why some companies specialize in the production of large quantities. Similarly, there is a need to invest in robust systems to ensure continuous production.
This article discusses some of the fantastic attributes of the best brine making system tank in the market today. While choosing a brine production system for industrial tanks, users should consider the following characteristics of Nancrede’s Brine Systems that are the best solution to brine for industrial tanks.
Down Flow Brine making
The downflow brining principle ensures consistent brine saturation as influent water rises, higher density brine sinks. Sludge from rock and solar salt is concentrated at the bottom of the system, where it can be periodically removed.
Their tough, damage-resistant fiberglass reinforced plastic shell is constructed to withstand many brine years, making maintenance-free.
In many commercial brine makers, inlet water is not distributed evenly. Eventually, this results in the formation of salt pillars in the tank, which can collapse and damage the vessel. This problem is eliminated by using a schedule 80 PVC ring induction header around the inside circumference of the tank. The ring is installed at a three-foot height to spray water evenly around the salt mass base, resulting in the desirable plug or mass flow.
Hassle-Free Brine Collection
A collector on the bottom of the tank collects brine evenly over the vessel’s entire surface area by infiltration through a 4″ ID slotted PVC pipe feeding a center-mounted FRP plenum. It filters undissolved salt crystals and is insoluble from saturated effluent brine. An outlet pipe draws brine from the plenum through a flanged and gusseted nozzle in the vessel wall. When sufficient vacuum coarse salt is used, the collectors are covered with a quartz rock filter bed to ensure that fine salt crystals do not pass through the slotted PVC pipe. Replacement of such a filter bed should never be necessary due to vacuum salt’s insignificant insoluble content.
Rapid Loading without the Dust
A pneumatic loading and air venting system is designed for rapid loading, easy maintenance, and minimum dust emissions. The 4″ ID fill pipe is fabricated from 304 stainless steel and mounted for center fill using a long radius turn to minimize particle attrition and dust. The tube is fitted with an aluminum Camlock coupling and cap that adapts to a P/D truck hose connection. A threaded nipple on the line may be equipped with a water hose to inject water during truck unloading to wet the conveyed salt, resulting in minimized dust emission.
Easy Clean Out
All of Nancrede’s Brine Systems are fitted with a 24″ diameter side-mounted, leak-proof manway near the base for convenient cleanout access. This port is used for periodic sludge clean-outs, required when rock and solar salt are used. All collection and outlet internal piping are removable through the manway for cleaning or repair; however, removing the internal piping is usually unnecessary for a cleanout.
