: : vern, a coworker of mine would like to know what chart you got 2.987lbs. of salt per gallon of brine. he seems to disagree whith you. thanks for your reply.
: I got my info from the Association 0f Water Technology water treatment mathematics workshop
: reference manual. There is a chart called the Salt Brine Calculator.
: One column is labeled lbs. brine NaCl/gal of water. At 100% that column says
: 2.647/7.38. I went back to some of the example problems, and they use this column for lbs. of salt per
: gallon of water. So apparently 2.647 lbs. salt per gallon
: is the correct answer for 100% brine. The other column is labeled
: lbs. salt/gal. water. That column says 2.987. What does your coworker say is the correct
My gess is , the difference came out of different water density at different temperature.
For example 1 cu.f of water at 32* weiht 62,416 lb
and at 100* 61,998 lb, (britannica).
