City of Delaware, Ohio invests in AccuBatch® brine maker to keep up with growing demand in winter
DELAWARE, Ohio - August 6, 2014 – In just a few short months winter weather will be here again and the city of Delaware is wasting no time in getting ready. As the demand for salt brine continues to rise, the city has found that their homemade brine maker is having a difficult time keeping up and they have chosen to upgrade to a unit that can more effectively meet their needs.
The AccuBatch® brine maker is manufactured by Cargill Deicing Technology. Capable of producing up to 800 gallons per batch, the AccuBatch® brine maker is the only model at its price point to feature automated, direct salinity concentration measurement. This will save the city valuable labor time and guarantee the proper salinity concentration with every batch they produce.
“We are excited to be able to continue to improve and expand our level of snow and ice control in the community, made possible through a reliable and consistent supply of brine,” said William Ferrigno, Director of Public Works/City Engineer.
The plug and play design of the AccuBatch® brine maker allows for easy setup and operation. In addition, the cleanout process takes only minutes to complete and can be done simply by pulling on a lever to open a valve that releases excess salt and sediment. Made from marine-grade fiberglass, this two tank design is durable, dependable and a very cost-effective way to make salt brine.
“The AccuBatch® brine maker provides smaller communities like Delaware with an appropriate balance of improved brine production for lower capital investment,” said Ferrigno.
The AccuBatch® brine maker is the second brine making system to be offered by Cargill Deicing Technology, joining their fully-automated system, the AccuBrine® automated brine maker.
