The evaporation of aqueous salt solution droplets from metal surfaces has been studied experimentally. The volumetric evaporation rate is found to decrease in time for any initial droplet volume due to an increase in salt concentration and the efforts of system to take a state of thermodynamic equilibrium. Crystalline hydrate film was being formed during desorption of CaCl2 10%, LiCl 10%, LiBr 30% salts. When NaCl 10% salt solution evaporated, there was no film. The average evaporation rate of NaCl salt is higher than for other salts. The lowest values of the average evaporation rate were found for LiBr 30% salt solution.
