Salt is mostly understood to mean sodium chloride (NaCl) which is table salt. But salts are generally crystalline solids consisting of chemical compounds of positively and negatively charged ions – the so-called cations and anions. These include inorganic salts (e.g. calcium chloride) as well as organic salts (e.g. acetates).
Salt is hygroscopic, it binds moisture and agglutinates. Untreated sea salt has a residual moisture content of up to 5 % H20. Furthermore, salts have a particularly corrosive effect and damage screening media made of steel. Whereas urethane screens do not need to be changed often.
The polypanel® modular screen convinces with its high screen capacity and improved downtimes. Perfectly suited for the wet processing of clumping products is our cost-effective polymesh® tension screen. The main advantage of using urethane screens: They are wear-proof and do not need to be changed often. Thus, you increase the productivity and decrease the expenses of your salt processing plant.
