Brine Maker 250 US Gallon
Now you can easily create your own brine using rock salt and water with the BM-250 Brine Maker.
All you need to do is add your own rock salt and water to the tank and in just 30 minutes you will have 23.3% salt brine. Approximately 2.288 lb (1 kg) of salt will make 1 US gallon (3.78 L) of 23.3 % sodium chloride brine. In less than one hour, the BM-250 will make approximately 950 L (250 US gallons / 210 imperial gallons) of sodium chloride brine.
The BM-250 is a single tank unit with one 1900 L mixing / storage tank. Its 2" (5 cm) poly pump and 900 Series Briggs & Stratton engine (which powers the pump) are both mounted on a retractable slide out tray. The rock salt will be dissolved via powerful jets inside the poly tank. Included is a hydrometer to test out the finished product.
One of the benefits of making your own salt brine is that it costs less than 10 cents per US gallon (3.8 L), which is a fraction of what you would pay buying ready-to-spray liquid deicers. You can also make your own hot brine good to 5 degrees for as little as 20 cents per US gallon (3.78 L) by adding 10 % liquid calcium chloride to your salt brine.
How to use: Add your rock salt and water to the tank. Turn on the unit and let it run until your brine measures 23.3 %. Then you can pump the salt brine to your storage tank or de-icing unit.
