Brine – or liquid salt – is an effective, pre-wet solution for combating icy winter roadways. As a pre-treatment, brine is becoming increasingly more effective and economically beneficial for anti-icing programs because it helps prevent freezing precipitation from bonding to the pavement and keeps roads clear from ice and snow. As a result, roads stay wet and clear, and the driving public benefits from safer traveling.
The AccuBrine® automated brine maker, Cargill Deicing Technology’s sophisticated brine production system, allows for easy, accurate and safe brine production using state-of-the-art technology. Investing in the technology also provides long-term cost savings in the form of decreased time, labor and deicer applications.
Fully automated. User-friendly.
The advanced AccuBrine® automated brine maker eliminates most of the headaches typically associated with brine production. Providing a fully automated process, you simply program the machine with your specifications for a particular batch of brine, add salt to the hopper, and let the system go to work. There’s no need to monitor, and you can even program the system from your home.
Correct salinity concentrations. Accurate data.
Creating a scientifically effective concentration of salinity can be challenging with other brine makers. With the AccuBrine® automated brine maker, the system tests concentrations of salinity and compensates for temperature to produce a more accurate, effective brine solution for roads.
Plus, the system collects and stores usage records so you can track the volume of water, salt and additives used over each year.
Brine when you need it. On-demand production.
No matter if you need 5,000 gallons for a storm that’s supposed to hit that afternoon, or 50,000 gallons to fill your tank farm, the AccuBrine® automated brine maker makes brine to your specifications. And with production volumes at 5,000 gallons per hour, you do not have to worry about having enough.
Durable investment. Long-term savings.
Developed with durability in mind, the AccuBrine® automated brine maker is manufactured from marine-grade fiberglass to withstand the harsh, corrosive nature of salt, water and winter conditions.
Investing in the AccuBrine® automated brine maker additionally translates into long-term savings. Investment costs are quickly recouped through reduced operational costs including less production time, less manual labor, and fewer deicing applications of regular road salt.

Safe cleaning. More cost-effective.
Cleaning out the AccuBrine® automated brine maker is a fast, automatic and safe process. Unlike other brine makers that require risky, time-consuming manual labor, the cleanout process is completely automatic. The system notifies the operator of the necessary cleanout, rinses itself out, and the sloped floor directs runoff to a designated area.
The process takes approximately fifteen minutes, saving on time, labor and overall costs.
