APPLICATION CHART FOR ICE CONTROL PRODUCTS AND
BULK STORAGE CAPACITY CALCULATIONS

HELPFUL HINTS
72lbs of bulk halite/rock salt will fill one cubic foot area
One acre = 4840 square yards
2000 lbs. = one ton

HALITE/ROCK SALT RECOMMENDED FOR ASPHALT (8 OZ. PER SQ. YD.)
50 lbs. of halite/rock will cover 100 square yards
80 lbs. of halite/rock will cover 160 square yards
Calculation to cover one acre = 4840 square yards x 8 oz. = 38,720 oz. / 16oz. (1 lb.) = 2420 lbs

PELADOW/CALCIUM CHLORIDE PELLETS RECOMMENDED FOR CONCRETE (3 OZ PER SQ. YD.)
50 lbs. of Peladow/Calcium Chloride will cover 266.67 square yard
80 lbs. of Peladow/Calcium Chloride will cover 426.67 square yard
Calculation to cover one acre = 4840 square yards X 3 oz. = 14,460 oz. / 16 oz. (1 lb.) = 903.75 lbs.

HOW TO FIGURE CAPACITY OF BULK STORAGE FACILITY
Building (W x L x H) =cubic feet
Cubic feet of building x 72 lbs = total lb. capacity
Total lb. capacity / 2000 lb. = ton capacity of building
Minimum delivery for bulk deicing salt 22 tons

All calculations are approximate.
