Product Specification

Product Specification

On site brine production is an essential requirement in many processing industries, including food production, water treatment, pharmaceutical and chemical manufacture.

The NIPLAST® range of SALTURATOR® salt saturators is designed for just such on site applications, to accept road tanker or IBC deliveries of salt, to control the incoming water flow, to filter and to then deliver the subsequently produced brine solution.

The salt saturating process occurs in the NIPLAST® system, housed within a NIPLAST® tank body manufactured from corrosion resistant UV stabilised polypropylene.

The primary features of a NIPLAST® system include an aluminium salt delivery line for pressurised road tanker delivery, a water inlet system controlled via ball float valve or other control system, low-level side entry access with viewing window for easy salt level assessment, a 2-layer gravel filter bed, floor mounted brine collection pipe, powder vent or powder collection system.

Salt is delivered via the delivery line and is directed to sit on the top of the 2-layer gravel bed. Water is introduced and percolates through the salt, with the water dissolving the salt layer as it passes through.

Saturated brine solution contains circa 26.5% salt by weight and has a specific gravity of 1.20. The amount of brine the NIPLAST® SALTURATOR® can produce is directly proportional to its capacity.

The saturation process within the NIPLAST SALTURATOR® is largely automated and different levels of water, salt and brine assessment are available.

NIPLAST®’s bespoke manufacturing processes mean there are no diameter restrictions, so on site or access difficulties can be overcome. NIPLAST® SALTURATOR® salt saturator vessels are available in different storage and re-charge capacities to suit available space on site and the most economically efficient salt delivery modes..

Saturated Brine Solution Resistance

One of the key features of salt saturators is their long-lasting brine resistance, thanks to their construction from non-corrodible elements like PP or HDPE. This resistance is essential in industries that rely on brine solutions for various applications, such as water treatment, food processing, and chemical manufacturing. The ability to resist corrosion ensures that the saturator remains in good working condition for an extended period, reducing maintenance costs and downtime.

How Do Salt Saturators Work?

Salt saturators are essential devices used in various industries to produce and manage brine solutions efficiently. Understanding how salt saturators work is crucial for their proper operation and maintenance. Here’s an overview of the fundamental principles behind their functioning:

Salt saturators are primarily employed to produce brine solutions, which are essentially water saturated with salt or bed of salt (usually sodium chloride). The process begins by adding a predetermined quantity of salt to the saturator’s tank or chamber.

Water supply is introduced into the tank, and the salt starts to dissolve in it. As water dissolves the salt, the dissolution process occurs due to the natural tendency of salt ions to disperse evenly in a solvent, which, in this case, is water. This process is highly dependent on factors like temperature and agitation.

As more salt is added to the water and it continues to dissolve, the solution reaches a point of saturation. At this stage, the water can no longer dissolve additional salt (or pdv salt), and any excess salt will remain undissolved at the bottom of the saturator tank.

To maintain a consistent brine concentration, salt saturators often feature sensors or monitoring systems that continuously measure the concentration of the brine. These sensors provide feedback to control systems that can adjust the salt feed rate to ensure the desired concentration is maintained.

Storage and Usage

Once the brine solution reaches the desired concentration, it is ready for storage or immediate use, depending on the industry’s requirements. In applications like water treatment or food processing, the brine may be stored in dedicated tanks for future use or directed to the specific process where it is needed.
