Automated Batch Systems

2022 Survey Winner

GVM’s Brine Manufacturing Automated Batch System's (ABS) are designed to convert dry rock salt into liquid for pre-wetting or anti-icing roadways. The use of salt brine lowers the freezing point of snow and ice and has become a popular and cost-effective solution for managing roadways. GVM's ABS Brine Systems lower operation costs by using readily available materials; granular salt and tap water.

GVM offers three systems to quickly and easily manufacture salt brine. Each system includes Misco Digital Refractometer to measure the saturation percentage of brine.

EZ Brine Systems  

GVM’s automatic EZ Brine Systems are quick, easy, and accurate solution for manufacturing salt brine and custom chemical blends. Flexible enough to meet the needs of any organization, the EZ Brine can be used as a batch system to produce blends on an as-needed basis or as a continuous manufacturing system to ensure your blend is always available. In addition to salt brine, the EZ Brine can blend up to three different micro-ingredients allowing users to produce custom blends to work at various temperatures. Additives and micro-ingredients allow blends to work at lower temperatures and often for longer periods of time. 

The programmable controller computer is simple to operate and helps to guide the user through the process. The system constantly monitors salinity and pump performance in addition to logging brine production data. Built in WiFi allows for easy remote monitoring and the built-in printer is an added convenience to quickly print logged data. 

  • Produces up to 6,000 gal. of brine per hour (depending on water source) 

  • Built in computer for easy programing, remote monitoring, and data logging

  • Mix brine and up to 3 micro-ingredients, injected on a continuous basis, as programmed by the user

  • Automatic monitoring of components and solution

  • Continuous or batch style production

  • 304 SS mix tank, with skid-style base 

  • 6.5 yd3 salt capacity V-bottom tank, 120 x 63.5 x 65 in. (L x W x H)

  • 96 in. wide top opening for easy loading

  • Top mounted spray bars for rapid saturation of salt and easy tank clean out

  • All controls mounted in a watertight and corrosion resistant enclosure

  • Scot 7.5 hp, 3500 rpm, all SS centrifugal pump

  • EZ Brine Roll Off System is a self-contained unit that is installed in one platform. 

GVM EZ Brine Premiere
ABS-800 Brine System

Ideal for landscapers, small municipalities, and contractors, the ABS-800 is GVM’s most economical system available.

  • 800 gallon capacity tank, 144 x 43 x 58 in.

  • 2.5 cu yd salt capacity

  • Single speed pump, 110 GPM

  • Portable for use at multiple locations

ABS-1500 Brine System

The ABS-1500 allows users to pump manufactured brine from the brine maker to a storage tank as well as use the storage tank as a fill station to fill truck mounted tanks without adjusting or moving hoses. The system also allows users to load and unload truck mounted pre-wet tanks and large anti-icing tanks.

  • 1500 gallon tank, 151 x 53 x 63 in.

  • 5 cu yd salt capacity

  • 2 speed pump for high and low operation speeds,
    40 GPM-130 GPM

GVM ABS 1500 System
  • Produces up to 5000 gallons of brine per hour (depending on water source)

  • Heavy duty polyethylene construction, resistant to ultraviolet rays and many chemical products

  • Stainless steel tank divider separates manufactured salt brine for pumping to storage tanks or truck mounted tanks

  • Hot dip galvanized structural steel frame meets ASTM specification A-123 for corrosion protection

  • 115 in. wide top opening accommodates front-end loader buckets

  • Tank designed to be rolled over for easy clean-out

Tanks & Accessories

Vertical Tanks

White or Blue Vertical Storage Tanks are most frequently used for our Pedestal Pre-Wet Systems. Norwesco vertical tanks feature tie-down slots, built-in graduated gallon indicators, an offset fill-opening and a self-vented, slosh-proof lid.

Steel Supports & Accessories for Leg Tanks 

Norwesco bands are custom made to support their tanks and are galvanized or powder coated for added corrosion protection. Bands are necessary to ensure that the tank retains its shape and integrity.

High-Density Polyethylene Lids 

The hinged lid is manufactured from a copolymer material for strength, durability, and excellent chemical resistance. Its unique locking tab allows you to easily slip a padlock through it and secures the lid from theft or spills. The lid is interchangeable with a standard 16 in. lid and ring assembly, if you choose to replace your existing lid.

  • Easy open/close - opens a full 180°

  • Comes complete with a baffle vent assembly which allows for adequate venting when bottom filling your tank

  • Unique locking tab

  • All parts of lid may be ordered as repair parts


Tank Repair Kits & Tank Accessories

The tank repair kit includes a specially formulated welding wire containing copolymers and adhesives. The wire may be used to repair linear polyethylene. Easy to use and requires 110-volt power.

Cone Bottom Tanks   

Norwesco offers a wide range of cone bottom tanks designed for a our brine making systems. The cone shaped bottoms lend to quick and complete drainage. As with all Norwesco tanks, these tanks are molded of rugged, high density polyethylene and are both impact and chemical resistant.

Polypropylene Bulkhead Fittings/EPDM or Viton Gaskets       

Norwesco’s polypropylene fittings come standard with an EPDM gasket. Viton gaskets are available as an option when EPDM may not be suitable for your application. The 2 inch stainless steel bulkhead fitting comes standard without a gasket. 

Containment Basin   

Limit your liability by using a Norwesco polyethylene containment tank. Federal, state, and local agencies are enforcing stringent rules and regulations regarding spills, leaks, and overflows from primary containment tanks. Containment basins and tanks are impact and corrosion resistant and are molded as a one-piece, seamless unit. The 125 cone bottom style is a “Tank In A Tank”; the 140, 250, 360, 500, 600 and 1300 gallon sizes are “basin style”; the 1350 is an open top tank and the 2050 and 2800 “Tank In A Tank” are molded with a dome that can be cut off to enable it to be used as a containment tank.


Misco Digital Refractometer    

The Misco Digital Refractometer provides increased accuracy and efficiency when measuring the percent saturation and freeze point of sodium chloride salt-brine solutions. A quick, easy, and accurate method for measurement, the Misco Refractometer eliminates sources of error. To use, just place one or two drops on the measuring surface, press a button, and instantly receive a temperature-compensated readout complete with the unit of measure and freeze point.

This device eliminates the need for conversion tables, graphs, or charts by allowing the user to read in the unit of measure; percent by weight, percent by volume, parts per thousand, grams per Liter, °SAL, specific gravity, etc. There are also special NIST traceable calibration fluids available if required by your quality control policy.

  • Calibrated or tested with a drop of water

  • Requires a small sample volume; 

  • just one or two drops

  • Automatically temperature compensated

  • Easy to clean & ready to use in an instant

  • Fast & accurate

  • No tables, graphs or charts require
