Production Principle Of Anhydrous Calcium Chloride

- Aug 10, 2020-

The production principle can be prepared by the reaction of limestone and hydrochloric acid.

The operation process is as follows:

1. Making calcium chloride dihydrate (CaCl2•2H2O):

Put hydrochloric acid (31%) and limestone powder into the reaction tank at a ratio of 2:1, and react under stirring to generate acidic calcium chloride solution, which is moved into the clarification tank. Add lime milk to adjust the pH of the solution to 8.9-9. At this time, iron hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide precipitate out. After clarification and filtration, the filtrate is transferred in an evaporating dish and heated to 172~174℃ to evaporate. After crystallization and separation, it is dried and dehydrated at 200~240℃ to obtain calcium chloride dihydrate.


2. Preparation of anhydrous calcium chloride: reheat the dihydrate calcium chloride to 260-300°C, dry and dehydrate, and it will become white anhydrous calcium chloride.


3. The process of fluidized production of granular calcium chloride, which uses liquid calcium chloride as raw material and is produced in a boiling drying granulator. The boiling section of the boiling granulator is an inverted cone, and the lower part is an air distribution hole The boiling layer is above the orifice plate. First, pre-add granular calcium chloride seed crystals on the air distribution orifice, and blow high-temperature hot air under the orifice to fluidize it. At the same time, the liquid calcium chloride is atomized with compressed air through a nozzle and sprayed into the boiling layer.
