Industrial Salt

Salt that is used in industrial settings rather than for human consumption is referred to as industrial salt. Numerous industries, including the processing of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and foods, use industrial salt, which is produced in large quantities.

Industrial salt can be made through the evaporation of brine or seawater, or it can be obtained from a variety of natural sources such as salt deposits found underground. It usually contains sodium chloride, but depending on where it comes from, it might also contain other minerals and impurities.

Uses of Industrial Salt


In colder climates, salt is used to de-ice sidewalks and roads because it lowers the freezing point of water. When salt is applied to snowy or icy surfaces, it dissolves into a brine solution when it comes into contact with the snow or ice. The ice or snow melts and doesn’t continue to accumulate because this solution has a lower freezing point than water. 

Salt not only lowers the freezing point of water but also aids in releasing the ice or snow from the pavement. By using plows or other mechanical equipment, it is now simpler to remove the ice or snow.


Water softening is a process that involves the removal of hardness-causing minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, from water. One common method of water softening is through the use of salt, also known as ion exchange.

This salt-based water softening process is effective at removing the minerals that cause hard water, but it does add sodium to the water. This may be a concern for people on low-sodium diets or those with certain health conditions.


In oil and gas drilling, salt has several crucial functions.

Salt, in the form of sodium chloride (NaCl), is added to drilling fluids to regulate the fluid’s density and viscosity. This lessens the chance of blowouts and other drilling issues.
Salt is used in the process of evaluating formations, which involves determining the characteristics of rock formations. A conductive path between the wellbore and the formation can be made using salt, enabling the measurement of resistivity and other properties.


In order to prepare common color combinations, salt is sometimes used as a base medium for dyes and other times as a mixing agent to dilute their concentration. For these applications, we offer salt that has been vacuum dried and double refined. Each and every sensitive dye is produced using our pure vacuum dried salt.

Pharmaceutical Grade

Different grades of salt, such as pyrogen-free salt, injectable (Intervenes Solution), and oral rehydration solution, are offered by Smart Life Salt Refinery for the pharmaceutical industry. We also provide grades for dialysis, bromine-free, nitrate-free, and arsenic-free products.
Pharmaceutical grades produced by Al Amin Salt Refinery not only adhere to the world’s top pharmacopeias, i. E J. P, BP. EP, USP.

Soap Detergent Grade Salt

The process of making soap produces glycerin as a byproduct. The process of making soap, known as saponification, involves the reaction of fatty acids and alkalis. Crude tri glycride is created when fatty acid and alkali react completely. This ready-made soap bath is washed in a high density, nearly saturated salt solution in order to separate used lye from soap, which is then further refined to produce high-grade glycerin. The use of salt and water during this process has a significant impact on the quality of the final glycerin product.

Textile Dyeing Grade

The market leader for salt grades used in textile dyeing is Smart Life. We offer all grades of textile dyeing that are currently available. We’ve listed a few below for the information of our readers. 200 ppm (50g/L), 180 ppm (50g/L), 140 ppm (50g/L), 100 ppm (50g/L), and premium quality zero hardness salt are the available salt hardness levels. Additionally, we offer our PVD salt for extremely delicate dyeing applications, particularly for royal blue color.

Chlor Alkali Grade

Our salt’s high purity content minimizes the amount of contaminants added to the electrolytic production of sodium chlorate, caustic lye, and chlorine.
The primary raw material used to make caustic soda, sodium carbonate, and sodium bicarbonate is salt. Additionally, hydrogen chloride, sulfuric acid, and particularly chlorine are produced by the chlor alkali industries. Chlorine is then used to produce polymers like Poly Vinyl Chloride and Vinyl Chloride Mono.
At the Smart Life Salt Refinery, we produce this grade in accordance with customer specifications, going above and beyond to not only meet but also exceed their high standards.

Chemical Processing Grade

For the creation of various chemicals, industrial salts are used as raw materials. In the chemical industry, industrial salts are primarily used in the production of caustic soda, chlorine, and soda ash. Caustic soda and chlorine are produced by the chlor-alkali industry using electrolysis of industrial grade salt.
