For Your Business - Brine

Since 2008, Brine Solutions is available as an alternative to help simplify and streamline salt management for customerswho require dissolved salt in their production processes. In addition to handling logistics and maintenance, K+S Chile delivers and installs dissolver equipment and sodium chloride. The customer provides the necessary water. The dissolver has an approximate production capacity of 50 liters per minute; the achieved brine concentration is 312 grams of salt per liter.


Currently, a large percentage of Brine Solution brine dissolver stations are in use in freshwater salmon farming operations. Additionally, brine is used for water softening, de-icing roads and for use in the salting of cheese in the dairy industry.

Brine is developed from the mixture of Industrial SPL ® sodium chloride with water from the plant or operations center in which the equipment is installed. The solution is stored and maintained in special brine ponds, which are guaranteed and overseen by K+S Chile, thus reducing operating costs in addition to providing a number of benefits to production itself.
