INDUSTRIAL & ROAD SALT

Salt has more than 14,000 known uses.

So many industries. So many applications. And all simply using salt.

We have already told you that. So, believe it or not, industry has over 13,000 applications that involve salt!
Paints, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, detergents, treating skins and pelts, tanneries, etc. – salt is needed everywhere.
Too many processes to name here.
But whatever the application, Zeefa group is always your guarantee of the right product for specific need

ROAD SALT

The main use for rock salt is for managing ice; both residentially and on a large industrial scale.

Ice forms when the­ temperature of water reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius).  When you add salt, that temperature drops:  a 10-percent salt solution freezes at 20 F (-6 C), and a 20-percent solution freezes at 2 F (-16 C).  On a roadway, this means that if you sprinkle salt on the ice, you can melt it.  The salt dissolves into the liquid water in the ice and lowers its freezing point.

During the winter months it is very common for homeowners to spread salt on their walkways and driveways after a snow storm to melt the ice.  It is not essential to use so much salt that the ice is completely melted; but instead, using a small amount of salt will weaken the ice sufficiently so that it can be easily removed by alternative means

CHEMICAL FEEDSTOCK

The greatest single use for salt is as a feedstock for the production of chemicals. The chlor-alkali industry uses salt, primarily as salt in brine from captive brine wells, to produce chlorine and caustic soda.

SALT FOR ANIMAL FEED

Livestock, poultry and other animals do not always receive adequate amounts of sodium and chloride from forages and other feeds. They need supplemental salt as part of a nutritionally balanced diet to remain healthy, disease free, and to achieve optimum growth and reproduction rates. Because animals have a natural, definitive appetite for salt – they will eat only a certain amount – it is used to ensure adequate intake of less palatable nutrients and as a means of limiting feed intake. Salt can be mixed with feed or fed free-choice, and is an excellent carrier for trace minerals, It is produced plain or as trace mineralized salt, in 50 lb blocks, smaller spools, and as loose salt, commonly known as mixing salt.

WATER SOFTENER

Water is considered hard when it contains calcium and magnesium (hardness ions). Hard water requires more soap and detergent for laundering, cleaning and bathing because suds do not form as well in hard water. The reaction between soap and hard water results in a greasy, curd-like deposit which makes fabrics feel harsh and leaves water spots on dishes and utensils. Mineral scale builds up in hot water appliances and industrial boilers, reducing energy efficiency and shortening appliance and equipment life. Water is conditioned or softened by removing the calcium and magnesium ions from hard water and replacing them with “soft” sodium ions. Water softeners use cation exchange resin to exchange sodium for calcium and magnesium. As supply water flows through the resin bed, the exchange takes place and the water becomes soft. Water softener cation exchange resins are regenerated with a 10% salt brine solution made by dissolving water softener salt.

DISHWASHER SALT

A small water-softener is built into every dishwasher. This works approximately as a classic water-softener and ensures that your dishes do not suffer from the effects of hard water.

Dishwasher salt ensures that your machine stays well-maintained and your dishes dazzle. Salt for the dishwasher is extremely pure and has large, hard grains.

SALT FOR SWIMMING POOLS

Salt belongs in a swimming pool for two reasons. First and foremost, the correct concentration of salt in the water makes for a pleasant swim: no stinging eyes, no dried out skin afterwards. In swimming pools operating with salt electrolysis, salt is also required to produce chlorine and ozone. That keeps the water pure and inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae and other nasties.

PULP & PAPER

Salt is used to manufacture chlorine and caustic soda. In paper making, caustic soda is used to process wood fibers and chlorine is used to bleach the pulp. Sodium chlorate, also made from salt, is replacing chlorine as the primary chemical for bleaching pulp.

Other Industries

Salt is used to fix and standardize dye batches in the textile industry; it is used in metal processing and secondary aluminium making, to remove impurities; rubber manufacturers use salt to separate rubber from latex; salt is used as a filler and grinding agent in pigment and dry-detergent processes; ceramics manufacturers use salt for vitrifying the surface of heated clays; soap makers separate soap from water and glycerol with salt; oil and gas drillers use salt in well drilling muds to inhibit fermentation, increase density and to stabilize drilling in rock salt formations; hide processors and leather tanners use salt to cure, preserve and tan hides; and there are more.

Bird & Animal Feed Mix Salt

Most plant cells do not contain enough sodium to meet the needs of our domestic animals. Therefore all our animals should be fed salt to ensure their good health and best possible production and performance.

The salt in the body

Salt consists of sodium and chloride (NaCl). Sodium is crucial for many important body functions such as regulation of pH in the blood, muscle contraction, nerve impulses, heart rate and absorption of simple sugars and amino acids in the small intestine. Sodium is also the single most important substance for the regulation of fluid balance in the body. Sodium plays a very important role in the uptake of various minerals, trace elements and vitamins. The chloride ion is also very important in the body. It helps to regulate blood pH and it is also a necessary part of hydrochloric acid produced in the stomach, which in turn is needed for digestion.

Salt shortage

Salt shortage may initially perceive as diffuse symptoms in animals. The initial signs are impaired feed efficiency, decreased appetite and thirst and, for lactating animals, reduced milk production. Animals can also develop so-called perverse appetite. They lick on the interior or eat soil, manure and/or urine. Prolonged salt shortage gives muscle weakness and uncoordinated movements. Lactating animals are sensitive to salt deficiency because of the milks large content of sodium and chloride. Also animals in training are vulnerable, when large amounts of salt are excreted in the sweat. Temperature affects animal’s need of salt.

Excess salt

Excess salt is excreted in the urine. If too much salt is fed to animals they might become dehydrated. Free excess to water should always be ensured to animals that are fed salt. To encourage an animal to drink more, something sweet, like molasses or unsweetened apple juice, can be mixed into the water. Large excess of salt may cause abnormal thirst, muscle weakness and oedema. The risk of salt poisoning, however, is next to non-existent if the animals have access to water. Poultry and pigs are the animals that are most sensitive to salt excess.

Feeding salt

When given free access to salt lick it is difficult to know how much salt the animals actually get. Trials have shown that cows will lick about 30-60 grams, horses lick 20-40 grams and sheep licks 10-15 grams of salt lick per day. However the individual variation was evident. Most animals are able to avail themselves of its maintenance needs if they have free access to salt lick. Animals not able to

support their salt need via salt lick must be fed with salt mixed into the feed. We recommend that all animals should have free access to salt licks all year. Animals with large salt needs should be fed with extra salt. When feeding salt the animals should always have free access to water.
