Can I use Calcium Chloride W/BOOST* Mixed With Salt Brine ?

This was a question asked of one of our staff. The answer is “ABSOLUTLEY” and with great success. We have a number of customers in Michigan using the BOOST / Brine blend and seeing remarkable results.

> Residual effect from Organic in the BOOST.

> Lower freeze point and effective range

” Salt Brine Mixed with BOOST @ 20%. “

Salt brine specific gravity at 23.3% 59°F 1.179

Salt brine specific gravity at 23% – Mixed w/20% BOOST 1.279

Pounds of salt per gallon of brine 2.28 lbs @ 23.3%

Salt weight per cubic foot ASTM spec D 632 approx. 80 lbs

Salt weight per Cubic Yard ASTM spec D 632 approx 2160 lbs

When mixing brine with BOOST*, check specific gravity, if higher then 1.279, recirculate through brine maker until 1.279 specific gravity is achieved.

Easy to calculate @ 2 gallons of BOOST in every ten gallons of Brine.
