Detail


Hydrochloric Acid Introduction

Hydrochloric acid is a colorless and transparent liquid with a strong pungent odor and highly corrosive.


Physical and Chemical Properties:

Physical properties of hydrochloric acid, such as boiling and melting points, density, and pH, depending on the concentration or molarity of HCl in the aqueous solution. They range from those of water at very low concentrations approaching 0% HCl to values for fuming hydrochloric acid at over 40% HCl

Application:

Hydrochloric acid is a strong inorganic acid that is used in many industrial processes such as refining metal. The application often determines the required product quality.

1.Pickling of steel

One of the most important applications of hydrochloric acid is in the pickling of steel, to remove rust or iron oxide scale from iron or steel before subsequent processing, such as extrusion, rolling, galvanizing, and other techniques. Technical quality HCl at typically 18% concentration is the most commonly used pickling agent for the pickling of carbon steel grades.

2.Production of organic compounds

Another major use of hydrochloric acid is in the production of organic compounds, such as vinyl chloride and dichloroethane for PVC. This is often captive use, consuming locally produced hydrochloric acid that never actually reaches the open market. Other organic compounds produced with hydrochloric acid include bisphenol A for polycarbonate, activated carbon, and ascorbic acid, as well as numerous pharmaceutical products.

3.Production of inorganic compounds

4.PH control and neutralization

5.Regeneration of ion exchangers

Hydrochloric acid is used for a large number of small-scale applications, such as leather processing, purification of common salt, household cleaning, and building construction. Oil production may be stimulated by injecting hydrochloric acid into the rock formation of an oil well, dissolving a portion of the rock, and creating a large-pore structure. Oil well acidizing is a common process in the North Sea oil production industry.

Many chemical reactions involving hydrochloric acid are applied in the production of food, food ingredients, and food additives. Typical products include aspartame, fructose, citric acid, lysine, hydrolyzed vegetable protein as food enhancer, and in gelatin production. Food-grade (extra-pure) hydrochloric acid can be applied when needed for the final product.



Storage:

Store in a cool, well-ventilated warehouse. Storage temperature is less than 30℃, and the relative humidity is less than 85%. Keep the container sealed. Keep separate from alkalis, amines, alkali metal and flammable or combustible substance and be careful not to place them together. The leakage emergency treatment facility and appropriate collecting containers should be available in the storage area.



QUALITY INSPECTION

Accept inspection of any impartial third party, such as SGS, BV, ISO, CE, etc.
