The GVM Batch Brine Systems with a 800 or 1500 gallon capacity tank are ideal for lowering operating costs by using readily available materials; granular salt and tap water. The two systems are capable of producing up to 5,000 gallons of brine per hour, depending on the water source. The systems are also designed to be rolled over for easy clean-out.

Automated Batch Systems (ABS) from GVM Brine Manufacturing 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.
GMV offers three systems to quickly and easily manufacture salt bring. Each system includes Misco Digital Refractometer to measure saturation percentage of brine.


  • 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

The ABS-800 System is ideal for landscapers, small municipalities and contractors. It is GVM’s most economical system with an 800 capacity tank (144 x 43 x 58 inches) and a 2.5 cubic yard salt capacity. It features a single speed pump with 110 GPM and is portable for use at multiple locations.
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. This system features as 1500 gallon tank (151 x 53 x 63 inches) and a 5 cubic yard capacity. It has a 2 speed pump for high and low operation speeds (40 GPM-130 GPM).


Tank Options:

Vertical Tanks

Our Pedestal Pre-Wet Systems both come with white or blue vertical storage tanks, while our Norwesco vertical tanks feature tie-down slots, built in graduated gallon indicators, an offset fill-opening, and a self-vented, slosh-proof lid.

Cone Bottom Tanks

Norwesco offers a wide range of cone bottom tanks designed for a our brine making systmes. 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.

Tank Accessories

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Optional Features:

As an option, the Misco Digital Refractometer can be added to provide 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 required
