New SnowEx® Brine Pro™ Features Automatic Operation, Enables All Snow and Ice Management Professionals to Make Brine

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – To address the increased need for liquid solutions in snow and ice management, SnowEx® has introduced the Brine Pro 2000 brine maker. With its unique, patent-pending design, the Brine Pro provides simple installation and automated operation, empowering end users to confidently produce their own brine.

Engineered for use with low-flow water input and standard 220VAC power sources, the Brine Pro is highly compatible for a variety of operations. It features intuitive touch-screen controls with separate modes for automatic and batch production, as well as a special cleaning mode. Its automatic salinity control helps ensure proper salt/water proportions with minimal effort from the operator.

The Brine Pro includes a dry hopper system for no-splash salt refills and easy visual salt level indication. The hopper has a 1-cubic-yard capacity with a vibrator and a sloped design for easy clean-out. Material is precisely transferred from the hopper to the 265-gallon mixing chamber through a unique flow control system and hammer mill salt grinder, which grinds the salt to a consistent particle size, accelerating the dissolve rate and expediting the clean-out process. In the mixing chamber, a high-volume circulation pump ensures consistent brine production at rates up to 1,050 gallons per hour.

To minimize corrosion, the hopper, mixing chamber and reservoir are constructed of polyethylene with powder-coated and stainless steel components. The system is covered by a two-year warranty.

“We wanted to develop a brine maker easy enough for anyone to use,” said Barry Truan. “The Brine Pro 2000 takes all the guesswork out of mixing brine, making it easier for snow and ice management professionals to add liquid solutions as another tool to their toolbox.”

In addition to the Brine Pro 2000, SnowEx also offers 3,000- and 5,000-gallon brine storage tanks, transfer pumps, and transfer hoses for filling sprayer systems, making SnowEx a one-stop-shop for all brine making needs.
