wow ha ha :)

I can get purer salt with vulgar boroglass wow ha ha :)

much more benefits!!!

two methods, one better with a quartz glass flask but not a crazy 1400+ ºC

ha ha! if you are a company with a big pocked... :D

Molten salt are used as a heat storing and transferring media is these big solar energy plants where hundreds of mirrors are focused at the same point in a tower.
The point where the solar beams are focused are heated to very high temperatures and they heat liquid salt that are used as a transfer media of the harvested energy.
As salts have very high boiling points i think distilling it is quite a challenge, but maybe not impossible.
Just a very hard way of purifying it.
If you have one of those ovens that are used for melting metals that can go up to 1300°C you might be able to boil salts but i dont really see the reason for purifying salts by distillation as its so hard and also quite dangerous.
Why not use other methods of purification as re-crystallization, solubility in different solvents or other chemical magic trix instead?
I would be so much easier to get to same goal.
Its like firing up the sauna to get rid of body fluids when you just can take a piss.

if you boil salts in a closed oven you destroy it or if enought pressure the door fly at your face!
