MODERN TECHNOLOGIES

The beginning of salt-production at the mines of Artyomsol is connected with application of hard manual labour during the whole process of production. The first salt-workers drilled boreholes, blasted and loaded salt into tubs by hand. Horses hauled salt to the shaft where it was brought to the grass by means of a steam hoist-engine. Carbide and kerosene lamps lighted working areas…

Advance of science and technology is reflected in work organization of the underground and the salt-processing complex, computerization and automation of handling operations and in longstanding time-proved marketing and sales policy of the enterprise. Modern systems of extracting this natural resource, progressive method salt-cutting, conveyer transport and product stream lines of overground salt-processing complex exclude application of hard manual labor during basic production processes and ensure high quality of products and industrial safety. Engineering services of the enterprise did much for diversification of product range, as well as for improving its quality to achieve absolute satisfaction of numerous consumers.

Demand for new kinds of our products is constantly increasing with iodized salt treated with anti-caking agent, pre-packed salt in polypropylene packets with folding edges of 1 kg each, in paper and polypropylene packets of 0.5 kg each, pre-packed salt in 180g, 450g polymer buckets; salt for baths pre-packed in 800g, 1000g buckets, wide range of milled, dust-free and sieved salt for industrial use, salt lamps and souvenirs.

Our enterprise produces various types of pre-packed salt weighing between 10 grams and 1 ton.

Consumers’ demand to multiple packaging is also satisfied by means of thermoshrinkage film and stretch film, flexible containers (big-bags), bags of 10, 25 and 50 kg, boxes made of corrugated cardboard. Products are loaded separately onto pallets and eventually strapped with stretch film. Production facilities of the association allow manufacturing 1 575 thousand tons of iodized salt that is used in prophylaxis of iodine deficiency disorders.
