Ferric Chloride (Chlorofric)

Ferric Chloride (Chlorofric)

Iron chloride (chloroferric) is one of the mineral compounds used in various industries, including water and wastewater treatment, which is produced by the reaction of iron and chlorine in heat. The chemical formula of this mineral compound is FeCl3 and it is used in powder, liquid and solid form in various industries. safe comfort; The provider of water and wastewater treatment chemicals will continue to introduce the complete chlorofric and will refer to things such as physical and chemical characteristics, production method, user and price and important things in the sale and purchase of industrial and laboratory iron chloride 6 and 3. had

What is ferric chloride (chloroferric)?

Chloroferric or iron chloride with the chemical name FeCl3 is one of the very strong coagulants, which has acidic properties and has a very high corrosive power. These compounds are used in various industries such as metal extraction, pharmaceuticals, dyeing, paper making, arsenic removal, as well as water and wastewater treatment. Iron chloride is known by different names, including iron chloride, iron chloride, ferric chloride, iron trichloride, ferrochloride, iron chloride, powdered iron chloride, and liquid chloroferric.

Types of iron chloride

Chlorofric acid can be divided into different groups based on its appearance, which include:

Iron chloride powder

He pointed out that the most important feature of powdered chlorofric is the absence of water in it and its very high ability to absorb moisture. The color of these chemical mineral compounds is brown in powder form and turns orange when moisture is absorbed.

Liquid chloroform

Another type of this chlorophric is in solution and liquid form and their color is garlic brown. The concentration of iron chloride in this solution is about 37 to 43 mass degrees and it has a nasty acidic smell and is non-flammable. It should also be noted that in very high concentrations, these compounds have six water molecules and their chemical formula is (FeCl3.6H2O). Ferric chloride with high concentration is called 6-water crystal because it consists of six water molecules and it is yellow in color.

How to produce chloroform

Dry chlorine and iron are used in the production process of chloroferric, and to carry out the reaction between these two, a very high temperature of about 600 degrees Celsius is required. Chlorine and iron react together and due to high heat, eventually iron is oxidized and turns into iron chloride. Finally, iron chloride II reacts with chlorine in the environment to iron chloride III.

In addition to the above method, this compound can also be prepared from the reaction of hydrochloric acid with iron. In this case, iron is oxidized in the reaction with hydrochloric acid and then reacts with chlorine and turns into chloroferric. As mentioned, as a result of these reactions and according to the amount of heating and environmental conditions, the composition will be obtained in the form of powder, crystal and liquid.

Physical and chemical properties of iron chloride (chloroferric)

Before buying iron chloride, it is necessary to know enough about its physical and chemical characteristics so that you can choose the right type according to the purpose. In summary, the physical and chemical characteristics of chloroform can be stated as follows:

Chlorophrenic is highly acidic and has a pungent smell. Due to its high acid strength and high corrosiveness, safety principles must be observed in its use.

Dry ferric chloride, which is in powder form, dissolves in water at a temperature of 0 °C and will reach the boiling point at 306 °C.

Crystal ferric chloride or 6 Abe is dissolved in water at a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and reaches the boiling point at a temperature of 37 degrees Celsius.

The solubility of fecl3 in water depends on its temperature. So, in 100 cc of water with a temperature of 0 degrees Celsius, their solubility is 74.4 grams. This amount increases to 537.7 grams for water at the boiling point.

The coagulant property of FeCl3 is very high and for this reason it is used in wastewater treatment.


The dangers of ferric chloride

Among the most important dangers of iron chloride, the following can be mentioned:

Using these materials without gloves leads to severe skin burns.
The contact of these substances with the eyes is extremely harmful and causes irritation and reduced vision and even blindness. Immediately after contact with the eyes, you should wash it for a few minutes.
Entering iron chloride into the digestive system is dangerous and harmful. If these items enter the stomach and digestive system, severe poisoning will occur and you should immediately go to the medical center.

Application of iron chloride (chloroferric) in water and wastewater treatment

Considering that there are many concerns about the presence of small suspended particles that pass through the filters in the treatment of industrial and sanitary wastewaters, for this reason, the use of coagulants in water and wastewater treatment is high. Among the coagulants used in this field, we can mention iron chloride. These compounds react with hydroxide ion after entering water. As a result of this reaction, iron III hydroxide, which is a strong coagulant, is formed. Finally, this combination causes the colloidal and suspended particles in the wastewater to be connected together and gradually settle on the bottom of the treatment pond. By using this ferric chloride, it is possible to settle a very large amount of mud in the water treatment tanks and lead to an increase in the quality of the water coming out of the treatment plant.

The price of iron chloride (chloroferric)

The price of iron chloride will vary according to several factors, including their degree of purity, as well as whether the composition is powdery or liquid and crystalline. For example, the price of chlorofric with purity grade 20 is cheaper than the compound with purity grade 40. You can contact Asaish Afza Ayman experts to inquire about the price.
