Coarse Solar Salt


coarse-salt Clipper Oil is a salt distributor for the tuna fleet throughout the Pacific. We stock various grades of Heavy Crushed Coarse Solar Salt at our warehouses in Pago Pago, American Samoa; Majuro, Marshall Islands; Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia; Tarawa, Kiribati; and Noro, Solomon Islands. The salt is primarily used by the fishing fleet to make a refrigerated brine solution to freeze the tuna while out at sea. Our main salt products are packed in 25kg, 50kg and 1200kg bulk bags.

imgthumb1 Under ambient conditions, water will freeze at 32°F (0°C). However, once salt is added to the solution, the freezing point of water will decrease. For example, a 10% salt solution freezes at 20°F (-6°C) and a 20% salt solution freezes at 2°F (-16°C).In the tuna industry, it is customary for vessels to add large quantities of salt to the water in the fish-wells where the fish are stored. This allows the fish to freeze without actually turning the water into ice.
