The salt quality was studied by dewatering methods such as centrifugal hydro extraction, fixed bed dryer, and rotary drum dryer. The effect of different salt particle sizes was also analyzed. The centrifugal hydro extractor is found to be effective when reducing the high-water content of salt and suitable for reducing water content after the salt wash stage. Fixed bed dryers produce lower water content than rotary drum dryers. A water content lower than 1% can be achieved using fixed bed dryers. Finally, all dewatering methods such as centrifugal hydro extractors, fixed bed dryers, and rotary bed dryers are suitable for salt production methods. Reduced salt particle size from 30 to 60 mesh also improved the drying performance.
