Continuous controllable supply of saturated brine solution

Forbes is the UK’s leading manufacturer of salt saturators

Supplying safe & efficient saturated brine production systems worldwide.

Salt saturators produce a continuous supply of brine solution without the need for manual handling.

The GRP storage tank has a semi-translucent shell, incorporating UV stabilisers, allowing salt and water levels to be easily seen. 

All Forbes salt saturators can be fully approved to the stringent requirements of the WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme).

  • Saturator Vessel
  • Dust Control Options
  • Lifting lugs
  • Access manways
  • Level indicators
  • Dust control
  • Outlet with brine collection system
  • PDV salt inlet with aluminium pipe and tanker connection
  • Automated water level control
  • Dual layer gravel bed.

The salt saturator vessel contains layers of graded gravel on which rests a bed of salt covered by a constant head of water.

The automatic process only requires a water supply and refilling with PDV salt.

The water dissolves the salt and, after filtering through the gravel, emerges as clean, saturated brine, 26.45% salt by weight at 20°C, which can be used in many industries including water treatment, food & chemicals

Forbes manufactures a wide range of standard salt saturators designed to suit most customer requirements.

These range from 100 kgs up to 130 tonnes salt recharge capacity, producing up to 6,800 l/h of continuous supply and up to 9,500 l/h of short term demand. 

In addition, unlike most of our competitors, our standard range of salt saturators have been sized to have a reasonable normal operating water head pressure, while also allowing for the increase in the normal water level caused by displacement after a full recharge of salt.

Whatever the application, our experienced team can select a salt saturator to suit. Speak to our sales team to find out more.
