Flotation for de-icing salt production (2 replies)

Do any company use flotation for producing de-icing salt? I have an ore with ~80%NaCl and I'd like to produce a 91%NaCl salt for de-icing. Have you heard about companies that did it?

I also would like to produce food salt (97%NaCl) with flotation, but I'm afraid that collectors for anhydrite ( sodium alkyl sulfates, alkylammonium chlorides) might be toxics. Have you heard of any other collector?

Marshal Meru 11 months ago uses just crushing and screening to produce table salt. gets de-icing salt  from the flotation separation.
