*Calculations based on the following application rates: Dry salt 30g/m2, Pre-Wet 17g/m2, Brine 35ml/m2. With a Pre-Wet system the application rate is significantly lower, as the pre-wetted salt bonds to the ground and immediately start breaking up the ice.

|Water volume||-7°C at 10% NaCl (rock salt)||-11°C at 15% NaCl (rock salt)||-21°C at 23,3% NaCl (rock salt)|
|200 l||22 kg||35 kg||60 kg|
|400 l||44 kg||70 kg||121 kg|
|600 l||67 kg||106 kg||182 kg|

Add 70 kg of rock salt to 400 l fresh water to get a 15% solution. Make sure that the volume of your mixing tank is larger than 400 l.
These proportions are only approximations and rounded values. Other factors, such as the purity of the salt and the current water temperature may also affect the solution %. Determine the exact concentration of the brine liquid by using a hydrometer.
