Preserving Salt is an item in the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.
When placed into any inventory or container, Preserving Salt will double the spoil timers of all perishables in that container (player and dino inventories included). For example, Raw Meat spoils after 10 minutes in the player inventory, but when putting Preserving Salt into the inventory, it will extend the spoil timer to 20 minutes. Preserving salt can even be used in combination with Preserving Bins, for maximum spoilage time. (Does not work for Non-Legacy Servers) The preserving effect only works per one stack of six preserving salt at a time. Having multiple stacks within an inventory will not increase the effect for a longer duration.
The following items are unaffected by Preserving Salt:
- If placed into a Vessel, Preserving Salt will be preserved for approximately 694 days for later use.
- It can not be used in a Feeding Trough, as it will not accept Preserving Salt into its inventory.
