Brines solutions are made from salt and water and used for many different purposes. It is used on roads to prevent ice and snow from building up. Its freezing point is lower than water, and this is the reason it prevents icing on the roads. Brine is used on sidewalks, parking lots, playgrounds, parks, and sports facilities. It reduces ice on surfaces by 10 to 30 percent.
Brine solutions are used in food production and manufacturing. It is used with fish, meats, and poultry in manufacturing and restaurants when cooking. It tenderizes the meat, fish and poultry. When food products are processed in large quantities a brine solution is injected directly into the food product.
Salt brine is used in refrigeration and cooling for transporting food. It is used in water purification and softening and needs to be stored in durable tanks. Brine often is treated as wastewater after using and needs to be purified for other uses.
Many different businesses use brine, hospitals, laundries, chemical plants, cities, towns, and auto manufacturers. They all need large safe storage tanks to store brine in. Brine is delivered by trucks and pumped into storage tanks. Salt dust often results and a dust bag and proper venting is required to reduce damage.
Some brines become dirty and need to be cleaned and purified. Easy access to the tank is required and insulation required to keep temperatures consistent.
Best Type of Tanks for Brine Storage
Storage tanks for brine are made of fiberglass, steel, and cross-linked polyethylene. The cross linked polyethylene is the best type because this tank can be installed in 4 to 5 weeks. They have a longer warranty up to five years and wear many years. They are less costly than fiberglass and steel tanks.
Benefits of Cross-Linked Polyethylene Tanks
These tanks for brine storage are easy to install and lightweight. They ship to companies using common carriers and shipping methods. Shipping is less expensive because of their weight. They are easier to install, using equipment that the company already owns. Brine tanks can be moved and placed several times without damaging them.
These tanks require only routine maintenance. They do not leak because they are molded using one-piece construction. These tanks last longer than steel and fiberglass, and do not rust. They last from 15-20 years.
This special process adds a catalyst to the resin that hardens the material. It links all the molecules in the material like a chain linked fence. It is a plastic that is strong, resists breaking, and is hard to damage. It is a good choice for chemical storage of brine.
It is a good investment for brine storage because it resists cracks, and is strong. The resins protect the material from heat and these tanks are easy to clean and drain properly. Our qualified staff can help customers find the best storage solution for brine for their particular industry.
Our tanks have special fittings that ensure safety, no leaks or spills. Waste brine can be stored in these tanks to be processed into chemicals. One chemical that is made is sodium hydroxide, a chemical used to pretreat seawater going into desalination plants.
It changes the acidity of the water so the salt can be filtered out. The desalination industry uses many of these storage tanks for storing wastewater brine and treating it. Another chemical that can be made from wastewater brine is hydrochloric acid. It is used for cleaning machinery parts and chemical production.
