Sodium Chlorite Powder: Know its composition, preparation, uses and much more
Sodium Chlorite powder is a very useful substance, it has revolutionized the treatment of water thanks to the purification provided by its chemical composition, among other uses. It should be noted that sodium chlorite contributes to the optimization of various chemical and industrial processes that facilitate day-to-day life and improve people's quality of life.
For these reasons, if you want to know what other uses it has and how to manufacture it, keep reading because today we will teach you that and much more.
What are the uses?
Mostly, this substance is used to:
Whitening paper fibers, this use is mostly exploited by industries engaged in the treatment and production of paper on a large scale.
Disinfect and protect everything involved in the industrial processes of food and beverage production.
Reduce odors from the transformation of waste from a slaughterhouse.
Drinking water, widely used in water treatment plants.
Be used as reagents in a laboratory.
The treatment of residual and industrial waters.
How is sodium chlorite powder made?
The manufacture of this chemical powder is relatively simple because sodium chlorite is a direct result of sodium chlorate also known as NaClO3.
Firstly, chlorine dioxide or ClO2 is the product of a reduction of sodium chlorate in a fairly strong acidic substance, obtained through the use of a suitable reducing agent such as:
Subsequently, chlorine dioxide is absorbed by an alkaline substance which is reduced thanks to H2O2 hydrogen peroxide, resulting in sodium chlorite or sodium chlorite.
Safety precautions in the preparation and handling of sodium chlorite powder
This chemical deserves to take a series of precautions to be manufactured, handled and stored.
