Mechanical Salt Refinery
Crude Salt is fed into the feeding hopper of suitable capacity and it is then transferred to a belt conveyor. This belt conveyor will be fitted with a magnet to remove rubbish metal and will also be provided with a belt weigher with totalizer. Crude salt is pre-washed in special washing system. This is then fed to the feed in hopper of the wet mill for grinding. Wet mill is used to grind the salt with the help of saturated brine solution. This mixture is then passed to the slurry tank that is fitted with a slow speed agitator.
This slurry is then pumped through centrifuges, high pressure pump, centrifugal pumps, axial flow pumps, gear pump to the wash tank by a slurry pump, wherein dirt is removed from the slurry. The overflow from the wash tank is collected in a clarifier wherein brine is clarified and re-circulated in the plant. This is then pumped to the hydro cyclone by a slurry pump for thickening of the slurry.
