Potassium Cloride production raw material analysis

Nov. 16, 2019

The industrial-grade potassium chloride currently circulating on the market is roughly divided into three categories. The first category is industrial grade potassium chloride imported from Jordan, Israel, Russia, etc., of which the quality is better in Jordan, fewer impurities and high content. (all up to 95%), whiteness is one of the preferred raw materials for Potassium Chloride For Food Processing.

Potassium Chloride has the chemical formula KCl, which is a colorless slender diamond or a cubic crystal, or a small white crystalline powder. It looks like salt, odorless and salty. Commonly used in low sodium salt, mineral water additives. Potassium chloride is a commonly used electrolyte balance regulating drugs in clinical practice, and its clinical curative effect is exact, and it is widely used in clinical departments. Appearance and traits: white crystal, very salty, odorless and non-toxic. Soluble in water, ether, glycerin, and alkali, slightly soluble in ethanol, but insoluble in anhydrous ethanol, hygroscopic, easy to agglomerate; solubility in water increases rapidly with increasing temperature, and sodium salt often It acts as a metathesis to form a new potassium salt.

Potassium Chloride

The second category: Qinghai Potassium, Qinghai Potassium is produced by Qinghai Salt Lake Group. It is now owned by Sinochem and Zhongnong Group. The price of potassium in Qinghai is moderate. The content of imported potassium is basically the same, but the content of sulfur dioxide and other impurities is higher than that of imported. Potassium, above we mentioned that the production method of food-grade potassium chloride is a simple physical purification method, there is no chemical reaction, so a considerable part of impurities cannot be removed in the production process of food-grade potassium chloride. In practical production applications,  It is concluded that Qinghai potassium is not suitable for the production of food grade potassium chloride. On the contrary, it is very suitable for the application of some industrial products and agricultural products.

The third category: sea potassium, sea potassium is extracted from seawater, potassium chloride is now used by many manufacturers to the production of food grade potassium chloride, and puts the slogan of pure natural, no impurities, we from the sea potassium, It is still necessary to analyze the content of impurities and impurities to determine whether potassium chloride extracted from seawater is suitable for the production of food-grade potassium chloride.

Food grade potassium chloride is a very popular product. The production process is relatively simple. It is a simple physical purification method. It is simply to obtain the food-grade potassium chloride by purifying the industrial-grade potassium chloride. Therefore, the quality of raw materials. It is directly related to the quality of food-grade potassium chloride.

The main purpose

It is mainly used in the inorganic industry and is a basic raw material for producing various potassium salts or alkalis such as potassium hydroxide, potassium sulfate, potassium nitrate, potassium chlorate, and red strontium potassium. The pharmaceutical industry is used as a diuretic and a drug for the prevention and treatment of potassium deficiency. The dye industry is used to produce G salts, reactive dyes and the like. In agriculture, it is potash. Its fertilizer efficiency is fast, it is directly applied to the farmland, which can raise the water in the lower layer of the soil and have the effect of drought resistance. However, it is not suitable for application in saline-alkali soils and crops such as tobacco, sweet potato and sugar beet. Potassium chloride is similar in taste to sodium chloride (bitter) and is also used as an additive to low sodium or mineral water. In addition, it is also used to make muzzle or muzzle flame retardant, steel heat treatment agent, and for photography. It can also be used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, and salt can also replace sodium chloride with some potassium chloride to reduce the possibility of high blood pressure.
