There’s a lot of ways we use salt in winter operations from solids to pre-wet, brines straight up or blended, and combinations of all of the above.  regardless how you use it there a lot of chemistry going on when you put it on a snow packed or about to be snow packed road.  Our guest for this episode is Dr. Scott Koefod who’s an inorganic chemist with 30 plus years of experience researching various aspects and uses of salt which includes our business of winter maintenance.
