caustic soda flakes

  • Description
  • Comments

Caustic soda or baking soda is one of the common names of sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is also called caustic soda. Its common name is derived from its chemical identity as sodium hydrate and because it is caustic or corrosive. Caustic soda in its pure form is a white waxy solid. It easily absorbs water and forms aqueous solutions. Caustic soda or sodium hydroxide available in the market is usually sodium hydroxide monohydrate NaOH·H2O

Key points of Caustic Soda Flakes
Product name: Sood Perak
Scientific name: sodium hydroxide
Other names: caustic soda - caustic soda flakes - solid caustic soda - caustic soda
Appearance: flakes and chips like white color
Packaging type: 25 kg double-walled bag
Solubility in: water - glycerin - propylene glycol - methanol

Production of Caustic Soda Flakes
Caustic soda is produced industrially with a purity of 50% and through the electrolysis of sodium chloride salt in a method called "chloralkali". Chlorine gas is also one of the side products of liquid soda factory. Then, to solidify it, it is done in the Sood Perak factory by evaporating the water in the liquid caustic soda. The final product is soda flakes, which is called Caustic Soda Flakes in Latin. The non-industrial method of producing sodium hydroxide is through the combination of pure sodium metal and water. During this reaction, hydrogen gas and heat are released. This method is not industrially possible and is a laboratory method

Applications of caustic soda (baking soda)
This combination has many applications and is widely used in making candles or soap, paper production, detergents, etc
Perc soda is a co-product during the production of chlorine in the chlor-alkali process and is dangerous to eat and can lead to damage to human tissues
This substance is used to remove fats and clogging of pipes with fat. Baking soda in solid or liquid form can turn fats into soap and then dissolve them in water and clean surfaces from fats

Pure caustic soda is used to make candles or soap
Gross caustic soda is found in sewage cleaners
Caustic soda is used for soap making, candle making, freezing glass, and for chemical experiments
When dissolving baking soda in water in a container, it reacts very hot because this reaction is very exothermic.

For many cases it is necessary to first dissolve caustic soda in water. Due to the risks that doing this can have, this operation should be done with caution and according to safe instructions
Before working with this material, it is necessary to use a mask, gloves and glasses

:Solution steps
According to the instructions, pour a sufficient amount of water in a Pyrex flask (due to the high temperature), the ideal is to use cold water
Measure the required amount of caustic and add it to the water. This action should not be too fast or too slow. You should always add caustic soda to water and never do the opposite
Using a teflon spoon, stir the mixture without shaking. A hard layer will form at the bottom and the mixture will become cloudy, which is normal. Never use a blender

Keep the container closed and away from moisture. Caustic soda absorbs water and reacts with it
Keep Sood Perk away from children and pets. Touching or eating it can cause severe chemical burns
Use gloves or containers to work with caustic soda
Perform reactions involving this chemical in a well-ventilated room or outdoors. This reaction releases heat and harmful fumes

Selection of tanks and bags
:When storing this composition, three important factors should be considered
1- The dangerous and corrosive nature of this material, which can be very harmful for employees
2- The viscosity of the liquid type of this compound increases rapidly at temperatures below 16 degrees Celsius, so the storage temperature of this material must be higher than this point
3- The weight of 50% liquid sodium hydroxide is 1.5 times that of water (with the same volume)

Solid caustic soda is generally stored in thin steel drums, and choosing tanks made of aluminum, tin, zinc and its alloys, chromium and lead can cause serious damage. For example, in aluminum tanks, as a result of the reaction of these two materials with each other, in the presence of heat, highly flammable hydrogen gas is produced

Sood Perak is generally kept in dram or paper bags covered with PVC. In the following, we will get acquainted with the maintenance conditions in each of these cases
To ensure the stability of the product, the bags should always be placed in a warehouse with an air conditioner to remove moisture and cool
If storage in the outdoor environment is unavoidable, the bags should be covered with black polyethylene to protect them from moisture and sunlight
Protect from direct contact with air to prevent absorption of moisture and carbon dioxide

:Sudperak packaging
Sood Perak is packed in 25 kg bags
