How is salt made?

At Watkins Glen, evaporated granulated salt is manufactured by the multiple-effect vacuum pan method.  A vacuum reduces the amount of heat required by lowering the boiling temperature of the brine.  Multiple-effect vacuum pans substantially increase the amount of water than can be evaporated by each pound of steam, hence improving the efficiency of the process.  The brine enters four enclosed monel vacuum pans, each as tall as a six-story building and 15 feet in diameter.

Are different bag types and weights available?

Yes.  Whether it’s a 26 ounce paper round can, a 20lbs bag in paper or plastic, or a super sac weighing 3,170lbs, each US Salt package is carefully designed to protect your investment.
