Use of potassium chloride in medicine

Dec. 14, 2019

The main purpose:

It is mainly used in the inorganic industry and is the basic raw material for the production of various potassium salts or alkalis such as potassium hydroxide, potassium sulfate, potassium nitrate, potassium chlorate, potassium alum and the like. 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, etc. In agriculture, it is a potash fertilizer. Its fast fertilizer effect, directly applied to farmland, can increase the moisture in the lower layer of the soil, and has the effect of resisting drought. However, it is not suitable to be applied to saline, alkaline land and crops such as tobacco, sweet potato and sugar beet. Potassium chloride tastes similar to sodium chloride (bitter), and is also used as an additive for low sodium salts or mineral water. In addition, it is also used to make muzzle or muzzle flame retardants, steel heat treatment agents, and for photography. It can also be used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, and sodium chloride can also be replaced by a portion of potassium chloride in the salt to reduce the possibility of hypertension. Our company is Potassium Fertilizer Supplier, welcome everyone to come to consult.

Potassium Chloride

Potassium Chloride For Medicine is a commonly used electrolyte balance regulator in clinical practice, with a definite clinical effect, and is widely used in various clinical departments.

I. Analysis of the international status of this product.

In the global food-grade potassium chloride market, this product is mainly used as a nutritional supplement for food additives, gelling agent, salt substitute, yeast food, etc., to strengthen the gel. Like table salt, it can be used in agricultural products, aquatic products, animal products, fermented products, condiments, canned foods, flavoring agents for convenience foods, etc., or used to strengthen potassium (for human electrolytes) to prepare athlete drinks.

According to statistics: In the consumption structure of the international potassium chloride market, about 95% of potassium chloride is mainly used to produce agricultural potassium fertilizer and pharmaceutical-grade potassium chloride, while less than 5% is used for food-grade potassium chloride. Looking at the global market: The downstream applications of food-grade potassium chloride are mainly concentrated in upstream related industries such as food industry ingredients and additives. The market is special and the consumption scale and demand are relatively stable. Therefore, the food-grade potassium chloride industry is affected by the global financial crisis. Smaller. Although the total global potassium chloride demand in 2008 has shown a downward trend in recent years, the production and sales of food-grade potassium chloride have shown a steady upward trend.

With the development of the international food industry, food ingredients and additives and other related industries, the market demand for food-grade potassium chloride will continue to expand, and the price level of food-grade potassium chloride products will also rise.
