Salt Saturators

Continuous controllable supply of saturated brine solution.

Forbes Salt Saturators can be fully approved to the stringent requirements of the WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme).

The vessel contains layers of graded gravel on which rests a bed of salt covered by a constant head of water. The water dissolves the salt and, filtering through the gravel, emerges as clean, saturated brine in an automatic process needing only a water supply and refilling with PDV salt.

Key Information

  • From 2400mm to 4111mm diameter
  • GRP construction using WRAS approved materials
  • From 7 to 130 tonnes salt capacity

Which salt saturator do I need?

Forbes manufactures a wide range of standard Salt Saturators designed to suit most customer requirements. These range from 100 Kgs recharge up to 130 tonnes salt recharge capacity. 

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.
