Calcium Chloride Brine

Dust Control

  • There are unlimited application sites where Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine can reduce the inconvenience, safety and health hazards associated with fugitive dust such as unpaved traffic surfaces, secondary roadways, parking lots, construction sites and horse arenas.

Ice Control

  • Reasons for including Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine into a snow and ice control program is to make the program more effective to melt snow and ice as temperatures plunge allowing the snow and Ice to melt quicker. Overall salt usage is reduced by more than 25%. Winter driving safety is improved.

Stabilization

  • Gravel stabilization is the uniform blending , shaping and compaction of selected aggregates with Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine in order to achieve maximum compaction and best structural strength. Structural strength can be improved by thirty percent compared to gravel that has not been stabilized.

Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine

As a Dust Control suppressant, Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine , hygroscopic in nature penetrates quickly to coat small particles and retains moisture to control fugitive dust.

Anti - Icing, De - Icing

As an Anti -Icing agent the application of Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine to roads before a snow-pavement bond occurs acts as a prevention rather than a reaction.


Used as a De-Icing agent Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine is the practice of removing snow and ice once it has bonded with the pavement. Plowing and continual applications usually begins after 1 inch of snow has accumulated.

Stabilization

Stabilization with Calcium Chloride Brine  maximizes gravel wear on heavier traveled gravel roads while greatly reducing frost heave.


Product Concentrations

  • Our Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine comes from natural mineral wells in Michigan and does not need to be reconstituted. 
  • While exact concentrations will vary slightly, our product contains:
  • 18 to 22% Calcium Chloride
  • 4.11 to 5% Magnesium Chloride
  • 1.68 to 2 % Potassium Chloride
  • 3.78 to 4% Sodium Chloride
  • Our product is tested every 100,000 gallons to ensure values stay within ranges above.

Pre-wetting, Pre - Treatment

Pre-wetting is the treating of salt and or sand with Liquid Calcium Chloride Brine before they are applied to the pavement. This accelerates the activation of the salt before it is applied to the roadway. Pre-wetting are not typically performed before snow or ice accumulations.


Pre-Treatment is a form of anti-icing where Liquid Calcium Chloride is applied to pavement 48 hours prior to a snow to prevent the bonding between the pavement and the snow and ice when the storm starts.



Stabilization Process

  • Scarify and mix existing surface.
  • Add new aggregate.
  • Add Calcium Chloride Brine.
  • Compact soil using a padfoot compactor with a knockdown blade.
  • Shape surface to desired elevations
  • Seal with roller.
