Volume 3 No.1 January-June 2014 pp 55-58
It deals with the chemical parameters of brine at various stages of four selected salt production works, two from Kanyakumari District (SW1,SW2) and other two from Tuticorin District (SW3,SW4) Tamil Nadu. Estimation of ionic content of the various ions like chloride, sulphate, fluoride, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium were studied. The mean and standard deviation value of chloride, sulphate, fluoride, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium content (gl-1) at various stages of salt production process of the selected salt works were evaluated. The concentration of different ions in each samples were almost same. The calcium ion content was minimum in bittern stage of sub soil brine and below the detection level in sea brine.
