What is caustic soda?
It is mainly done in the industry of producing caustic soda or caustic soda with the help of one of the chlor-alkali methods. Alkaline chlorine process is a process that converts the chlorine ion in salt to the chlorine element at the anode by applying a direct current of electricity and electrolysis of sodium chloride according to the following reaction. Sodium also reacts with regenerated hydrogen in water at the cathode to produce caustic soda.
Other products that can be obtained during the alkaline chlorine process are hydrogen, sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, potassium hydroxide, and potassium carbonate. The resulting product is often mixed with water in liquid form, which then comes in the form of soda flakes, tablets and granules.
Applications and uses of caustic soda, which is the main product of alkaline chlorine process, can be used in the production of chemicals such as aluminum oxide or alumina, use in drilling and extraction of oil and gas, neutralization of chemical reactions, production of detergents; Pulp and… pointed.
PH control, acid neutralization, degassing, pulp and paper making, in gas and oil industries (to remove acidic pollutants in gas and oil process), soap making and detergents, rayon and cellophane industries, water purification, food process, Gas removal from chimney, mining, glass making, textile process, vegetable disinfection, rubber reduction, engraving and metalworking, aluminum making process, adhesive preparation, paint removal, as disinfectant.
