Calcium Chloride Manufacturing Process

Calcium Chloride Manufacturing Process

Solvay Process

  • Chemical Process of high purity limestone and salt brine to produce soda ash and Calcium Chloride
  • CaCO3 + 2NaCl ---> Na2CO3 + CaCl2
  • Produces a wide range of concentrations of both High Grade Liquid and Dry forms

HCl Process

  • Reaction of HCl and Limestone (or other source of Calcium)
  • Produces a wide range of concentrations of both High Grade Liguid and Dry forms

Natural Brine

  • Often pumped out of underground naturally occuring sources
  • Strength of liguid generally weaker and often inconsistent
  • Contains impurities primarily in the form of other Chlorides
  • Rarely find capability of producing Dry Forms

Strengthened Brine

  • Natural Brine is processed generally with heat to increase concentration and consistency

Brine Purification

  • Natural Brine is processed to remove impurities

Bi-Product

  • Calcium Chloride can be produced as a bi-product or waste of a chemical process
