For one salt we have too many overheads such as key generation, key transfer and key processing. But for many salts, same processed key is used again and again for all salts. Generally we'd use more than one salt, maybe around 1000 or so. But it is sufficient to use 10-20 salts to get an idea of what speed can be achieved using multiple-salts.
