Abstract

This chapter considers the preparation of brine from solid salt and the design and operation of each of the major units in a brine purification system. The discussion begins with the sources of electrolysis salts (both sodium and potassium chlorides; both natural and refined) and the methods of handling and storing them and then dissolving them to prepare brine. There is also a brief discussion of the storage and handling of brine. The rest of the chapter is then devoted to the treatment of brine to reach the purity demanded by the various types of cell. The sequence of the discussion follows the flow diagrams of Figs. 6.1 and 6.2.
