What are the characteristics of industrial salt


Sodium carbonate made from industrial salts in the building materials industry is the main raw material for producing glass. In order to eliminate bubbles in molten glass during melting, industrial salt is also a common component of clarifying agents for eliminating bubbles. General rough pottery, ceramic tiles, and jars require industrial salt as a glaze agent; Industrial salt production waste residue (salt gypsum) and calcium magnesium mud generated from brine purification. Industrial salt is widely used in industrial production, but not in the food industry. Once ingested, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Industrial salt is widely used in industry. It is a colorless cubic crystal or fine crystalline powder, easily soluble in water. Hydrochloric acid, caustic soda, soda ash, ammonium chloride, LV gas, etc. It is the main chemical product, mainly produced by industrial salt.
Industrial salt is introduced into salt fields from underground brine, and then dried, concentrated, and crystallized to produce crude products. Alternatively, seawater can be heated with steam, filtered through sand filters, and concentrated through ion exchange membrane electrodialysis to obtain saltwater. Rock salt and salt lake brine can also be used as raw materials to dry and produce raw salt. Using underground brine and well salt as raw materials, industrial salt is produced through three or four effect evaporation concentration, crystallization, and centrifugal separation.
The use of industrial salt:
(1) In light industry, when manufacturing soap, salt is often added to maintain the appropriate viscosity of the solution;
(2) The commonly used raw materials in the dye industry, such as soda ash, are directly produced with salt, and a certain amount of salt is consumed in almost every step of the dye production process;
(3) The leather industry requires a large amount of leather. During storage and transportation, raw leather requires anti-corrosion treatment to prevent or inhibit microbial erosion, thereby not reducing the quality of the leather. The commonly used anti-corrosion method in the leather industry is the salt drying method;
(4) Salt is used as a chlorinated roasting agent and quenching agent in the metallurgical industry;
(5) In the mechanical industry, salt can be used as an excellent binder for medium sand in non-ferrous metal and alloy casting.
(6) In the building materials industry, pure alkali made from salt is the main raw material for producing glass;
(7) During oil well drilling, in order to protect the integrity of the rock salt layer and core, salt should be added to the mud as a stabilizer;
(8) In the chemical industry, salt is the mother of chemical industry, which is the fundamental industry of the national economy.
The application of industrial salt in the building materials industry:
(1) Alkali is the main raw material for producing glass, made from industrial salt.
(2) Industrial salt is also required for the glaze on rough pottery, ceramic tiles, and pots.
(3) When melting glass, a clarifying agent is added to eliminate bubbles in the glass liquid, which is also made from industrial salts and other raw materials.
The above are some knowledge points about industrial salt. We hope everyone can study and understand the relevant knowledge seriously, choose products and equipment that are suitable for their needs, and ensure their own benefits.
