Light soda ash, sodium carbonate content which is white in color, sold in powder form and 50 kg of bags chemical. Easily soluble in water and a clear, colorless solution are formed. Heavy mineral densities and differences.
Laundry and tulle whitening, glass production, toothpaste, textiles, and food is used as an acidity regulator.
soda Ash is one of the most basic industrial chemicals and essential components of many products which we use in our everyday lives.
About half of all soda ash is consumed by the glass industry: flat glass for the housing, commercial building and automotive industries, container glass for consumer products.
Other glass-related uses include lighting, fiberglass insulation, glassware, display screens for consumer electronics and solar panels. Soda Ash is widely used in soaps, detergents, and other cleaning products.
It can also be used to increase the alkalinity in swimming pools, helping to ensure the proper pH balance of the water. It also provides the sodium source for the production of pharmaceuticals, food preservatives, adhesives as well as pulp and paper.
Soda Ash is also a raw material in some sectors of metallurgy, e.g. removing phosphates and sulfurs from non-ferrous or ferrous ores, recycling aluminum and zinc. Additionally, it is used as a smelting flux and flotation agent, moreover in the production of lithium-based batteries, and lead-based batteries recycling.
There are two forms of sodium carbonate available, light soda and dense soda (granular).
Sodium carbonate has a melting point of 851C, it decomposes when heated and therefore a boiling point can not be determined.
Sodium carbonate is an inorganic salt and therefore the vapour pressure can be considered negligible. It is soluble in water and solubility increases with temperature.
The average particle size diameter (d50) of light sodium carbonate is in the range of 90 to 150 µm and of dense sodium carbonate is in the range of 250 to 500 µm.
Sodium carbonate is a strong alkaline compound. The pKa of CO3 2- is 10.33, which means that at a pH of 10.33 both carbonate and bicarbonate are present in equal amounts.
In the detergent manufacturing industry, soda ash light is used to manufacture high-grade detergent powder. It makes detergents and soaps smoother surface.
In the glass manufacturing industry, soda ash is used to produce glass containers, fiberglass insulation, and many others, soda ash is required because it decreases the melting point of silica.
Soda ash light(NA2CO3) is used for drying clothes, clean air, softening water, and also as a fertilizer.
Use of soda ash is to maintain the pH level in a swimming pool, it increases the alkaline level which maintains pH.
In the food industry, use soda ash as an acidity regulator, stabilizer, and raising agent.
In a brick manufacturing company, use of soda ash as a wetting agent.
Soda ash light is also used to produce other chemicals like sodium silicate, sodium bicarbonate, and sodium chromate.
Soda ash is also used in different industries like pulp and paper manufacturing, water treatment, effluent treatment, metallurgy, and drugs.
