Brine is used in many industrial applications such as oilfield fluids and water softening. TBC Sales and Distribution, LLC facilities serve the Texas and Louisiana coastal areas along with Western New York State with truckload quantities of quality product for users in any brine application.
For water softening applications, customers may purchase a saturated solution of brine and eliminate many of the problems associated with salt handling, such as solid salt handling and residual sludge disposal.
Oilfield customers can rely on consistent quality brine for their borehole conditions. Our product is available for pickup or delivery 24 hours a day.
Brine is frequently utilized to regenerate resin beds for water softening, where sodium ions replace calcium and magnesium ions to maintain treatment effectiveness.
As a heavy fluid with a density of approximately 10.0 lbs/gal, brine can help provide the hydrostatic pressure to overcome borehole pressures and is compatible with a wide range of drilling, workover, and frac fluids in common use today.
Using brine instead of raw solid salt provides the user with numerous benefits:
- Eliminates the handling or disposal of insolubles.
- Reduces the risk of injury caused by hauling, lifting, storing, and handling of salt.
- Eliminates salt dusting and caking problems.
- Reduces manpower requirements.
- Extends pump life.
- Provides a dependable and convenient supply.
