HubPak-Salt Refinery(Hub Salt) produces and formulates salt for DE-icing/snow melting purposes for winter road maintenance and exports to several locations worldwide. Our DE-icing salt is specially graded and sorted to match technical specifications of grain size ranges to meet most countries equipment requirements.
De-icing Salts prevent 90% of road accidents in snow-prone areas during winter seasons. A thin layer of snow sheet on the roads, also known as ‘black ice’ is the major cause of road accidents during snow season, salt is sprinkled on these icy roads to melt the ice-sheet and make traction easier and safer to motorists. Each country uses different equipment for dispersing salt on snowed-on roads, our specially formulated de-icing salt ensures that the salt is fit for use in salt dispersing machines and equipment.
A particle size range of 0.15mm and up to a maximum of 6mm (or 8mm in some countries) ensures that the salt does not choke or damage the salt spray machines.
