Continue of thread "Brine Maker" or "Brine Saturator" Design Guide

Hello Everyone,
I have searched Brine Maker design guidelines and found the thread http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=225681#...
would really appreciate further information for brine maker sump type, (from truck to sump without pneumatic conveyor)
-Softener is a 3+1x6m3 ion exchange resin, to produce 110m3/h each envelope.
-Brine for regeneration is 10 tonnes of salt per day, (don't know flow rate)

could someone provide further information about sump volume for a desirable stock of salt is 7 days.-

thank you

You need to talk to the local supplier to determine the availabe delivery methods.

You capacity is likely to be too large for a "brinemaker" and you will have to construct something larger.

Salt may be dumped from a truck into an unloading station and either conveyed to a below ground tank or above ground tank.

Salt is conveyed, blown into, or dropped into a below grade concrete tank (saturator tank) from a delivery truck or railcar through an opening at the top of the tank. A 30% brine solution is produced from an underdrain piping system by dissolving a solar grade of sodium chloride (sodium chloride that meets all specifications in ANSI/AWWW Standard B200-98) with water that has undergone softening and cartridge filtration. The brine level in the saturator tank is maintained below the salt, which assures that a 30% brine concentration is maintained (approximate solutibilty of sodium choloride above 50OF is 30%. A level probe system maintains the brine depth. Saturator tank should be sized to hold 1 - 1/2 times the transport volume.
