10025-77-1 - Application:

Iron(III) Chloride Hexahydrate (Ferric Chloride Hexahydrate) (CAS: 10025-77-1) is the chloride of the Iron (III) form. It has various kinds of applications. Iron(III) Chloride Hexahydrate is widely used in water treatment, organic synthesis catalyst, and used in dye, pharmaceutical industry, corrosive agent in printing plate making, electronic circuit board, chlorinating agent in metallurgical industry, oxidant and mordant in dye industry, catalyst and oxidant in organic synthesis industry, chlorinating agent, It is the raw material for the manufacture of other iron salts and pigments and used in mine beneficiation. It is used as a flocculant in the purification of drinking water and industrial water supply. It has good solubility and excellent flocculation effect. Can be used for activated sludge dewatering. The pH range used is 6 to 11, and the optimum pH range is 6 to 8.4. The usual dosage is 5-100 mg/L. The flocs formed are coarse, the sedimentation speed is fast, and it is not affected by temperature. It is used to treat wastewater with high turbidity, and the effect is more significant. The corrosiveness of Iron chloride hexahydrate is stronger than that of ferrous sulfate, and the dosing equipment needs to be treated with anticorrosion. When it dissolves in water, it produces hydrogen chloride gas, which pollutes the surrounding environment. In addition, Iron chloride hexahydrate can also be used as a waterproofing agent, a corrosive agent for printing and plate making, an oxidant and mordant in the dye industry, a catalyst for organic synthesis, and the manufacture of other iron salts. It can be used as etchant, catalyst, mordant, oxidant, chlorinating agent, condensing agent, disinfectant, hemostatic agent, feed additive, water purifying agent and analytical reagent, etc. Iron chloride hexahydrate is used in nutritional supplements (iron fortifiers). For infant milk powder, weaning food, etc. Used in clinical reagents (amino acids in urine).

10025-77-1 - Safety:

Non-flammable, corrosive, can stimulate the skin, eyes. Inhalation can cause sore throat, Abdominal Pain, Diarrhea, Nausea, etc. Staff should be protected. After ingestion, the application of water to clean the mouth, drink milk. The production workshop should be well ventilated and the equipment should be sealed. In the storage and transportation, strict protection against toxic substances pollution, rain and moisture.
