Title: Salt brine and calcium
Post by: seza on March 18, 2021, 06:06:26 PM
Hi all,

This is related to a previous threat I started about increasing the density of water ...

I though I'd tackle the subject from a different angle hence the new thread :)

for my situation, my only starting raw materials are:
:: Fresh water +
:: Salt brine (saturated) +
:: Calcium in the form of limestone and/or chalk

My question to you is how can I combine/process these materials to produce a fluid that is non-toxic, stable, high-density (higher than sat brine density of aprx 1250Kgs/M3)?

For example Calcium Hydrogen Carbonate is water soluble - mixing it with brine will that work for my purpose?
any other suggestions?

thanks again and keep up the good work.
