How Much Rock Salt Do I Need?
You may wonder how much salt you need to de-ice your road or property. One ton of bulk rock salt typically weighs about 80 lbs./cubic foot (or 2,160 lbs./cubic yard). Your application rate will depend on several critical factors that are subject to rapid fluctuation. Despite the uncertainties involved in calculating the quantity of salt required, an estimate is necessary to place your order. Let us help.
Salt Application Rates: Precipitation, Temperature, and Road Conditions
We recommend that you purchase 10-15% more rock salt than you anticipate needing, in most cases. Salt generally maintains its usability without additional preparation when properly covered and stored away from sources of moisture. To battle snow and ice accumulation effectively, you must consider the appropriate adjustments for the following basic factors:
- Air & Surface Temperature
Rock Salt Application Rate for Roadways in West Virginia
Generally, a rock salt application will vary between 100 to 500 lbs. per square lane mile of roadway in West Virginia, and is very effective when applied according to standard guidelines. However, extreme conditions may require additional product. Please note that standard rock salt begins to lose its effectiveness at temperatures of 15° F and below. At these frigid temperatures, additional de-icing additives, such as magnesium chloride, may be required for effective ice treatment. We carry the most advanced, non-corrosive liquid pre-treatments. Deicing liquids that bond to road surfaces are also available to help maximize efficiency and improve safety.
