Salt Emilie Falconer
Transcript of Salt Emilie Falconer
All salt is washed twice using a saturated salt solution. The salt is transported to the factory using conveyer belts.
The salt is packed along the production line and sent to the warehouse so it’s ready to be sent to the stores.
All salt begins in the sea
Sea salt water is pumped straight from the ocean into shallow water pounds. The water is then evaporated to from salt. To evaporate the sea salt water it is pumped from one pond to the next, whilst the suns natural heat and the wind dry up the water. The final ponds contain concentrated salt water known as Maiden Brine.
At this stage, the brine is further evaporated and is ready for the crystallization of salt. This is when a thick layer of salt crystals from.
The salt is spun dried then heat dried to remove any moisture still in the salt.
The salt is then crushed into various
sizes as the final step before it is packed and
ready to ship off to the supermarkets. Larger crystals such as Rock Salt are produced first. Salt crystals that are crushed even further make cooking salt, and table salt is a fine sized crystal.
This layer of salt is lifted by a harvester. Trucks or large conveyer belts take the salt to be processed or stored outdoors in a large stockpiles. This is normally only harvest once a year. There are many salt crystal sizes at this stage.
