What is another name for potassium chloride?

Universal highly concentrated potassium fertilizer for basic application and fertilizing of various types of crops on all types of soil. Potassium is one of the most important elements in plant nutrition. Unlike nitrogen and phosphorus, it is not included in the organic composition of crops, so potassium fertilizer must be added to the soil additionally. Fertilizing with potassium chloride is indispensable on sandy, podzolic, peat and sandy loam soils, where productivity is achieved only through the application of fertilizer mixtures. Potassium chloride. Contains up to 65% pure substance. The advantages of the mixture include the maximum availability of elements for plants due to the combination of the main component with chlorine. The disadvantages include the presence of the same chlorine, which immediately after application is harmful to many crops. Therefore, it is recommended to use chlorine only in the fall, so that it has time to evaporate and be washed away by rain. Has a positive effect on crops:
• Improves the quality and increases the shelf life of fruits
• Promotes the formation of tubers (for tuber crops)
• Reduces nitrate content in plants
• Increases frost resistance and drought resistance of plants
• Increases resistance to diseases and pests Know that it is possible to make chlorine safe in this case. Fertilize your garden crops with potassium chloride only within the allotted time. In the fall, apply it to medium to heavy soils. In this case, chlorine will be washed away by rain from the upper layers in the fall and then in the spring. Potassium, on the contrary, will remain in the ground and will be useful to plants in the next season. Apply potassium chloride in spring to light soils with a high peat content. If you fertilize them in the fall, a noticeable loss of potassium cannot be avoided. On these types of lands it does not linger much. Therefore, experts recommend fertilizing vegetables sensitive to chlorine with potassium magnesium or potassium sulfate. Instructions for use:
Calculation of the amount of any fertilizer is based on studying the type of soil, type and stage of plant development. Sunflower, barley, beets, potatoes and other vegetable crops are in great need of potassium supplements, while grain crops (wheat, rye, etc.) consume little potassium. • dry mixtures are incorporated into the soil by mixing granules with wet soil;
• in the fall, fertilize the soil with potassium chloride at the rate of 100-200 g/10 m2 of area, for spring application the norm is 25-35 g/10 m2;
• during spring fertilizing, apply from 25 to 35 g per 10 m2. When re-enriching the soil for mature plants, double the dose. Not recommended Fertilize crops sensitive to chlorine with potassium chloride:
• vegetables: cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes;
• berry plants: gooseberries, currants, grapes, raspberries;
• legumes;
• salad crops.

Properties of potassium chloride

Potassium chloride KCl is an inorganic chemical found in nature as various minerals. Its alternative name is potassium chloride. For example, it is part of sylvite, which can be found in salt lakes, and carnallite, which is easily soluble in water. In its pure form, it is a white crystalline substance, odorless, and very soluble in water.

Quality indicators
Indicator name Specifications requirements
1 Appearance white crystalline powder
2 Mass fraction of potassium chloride (KCl) in the calcined preparation, %, not less 99,0
3 Mass fraction of losses during ignition, %, no more 0,8

Transportation

Our plant provides a two-year guarantee for compliance with the requirements when storing the substance under recommended conditions, with proper transportation and storage.

Since Iron (III) oxide for catalysts requires special attention during transportation, you need to treat its packaging with special care. Our company can organize its packaging according to GOST. Therefore, at our chemical plant, the finished substance is packaged in durable polyethylene bags that meet the standards. At the buyer’s choice, it is also possible to pack this substance in five- to six-layer paper bags.

Obtaining

In laboratory conditions, this substance can be obtained by combining potassium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid. But the main method of its production is gillurgy and flotation from sylvinite minerals.

If you look at the temperature at which the substances KCl and NaCl dissolve best, you can see that potassium chloride, with increasing temperature, begins to increase in hygroscopicity, i.e. solubility. While NaCl retains its properties when heated.

It is this property that is used in the halurgical method. The minerals are heated, and the more soluble substance, in this case KCl, dissolves, and the NaCl solid particles are removed from the solution mechanically, for example it can be filtered.

After this, transparent or white crystals of potassium chloride settle in a centrifuge, are simultaneously dried, after which they are removed, i.e. We obtain the required substance, potassium chloride. And the remaining solution is again mixed with a new batch of salnivit and the procedure is repeated again.

Well, the second method of extracting potassium chloride will be flotation. This method is designed to ensure that substances are captured differently in the aquatic environment during the transition of crushed ore minerals from a solid to a liquid state. At the phase boundary, KCl is easily separated from the main mineral, in this way it is captured and separated here.

Application

In pharmacology and medicine

Since potassium is a basic substance that plays a vital role in the functioning of the human body, in particular, it is involved in metabolism (as an intracellular ion), then of course medicine has not ignored this chemical element. For example, it is administered to patients with heart problems, to normalize heart rhythm or simply to restore potassium in the body.

In agriculture

It is potassium chloride that farmers purchase in large quantities, mainly as potash fertilizer, which is generally one of the most popular mineral fertilizers in the world. Potassium-based fertilizers improve yields, quality characteristics of agricultural crops, increase disease resistance and even improve the taste of fruits.

In the food industry

Potassium chloride is sometimes used as a food additive to table salt under the code number E508, to reduce sodium content. When these two substances are combined, a salt with a low sodium content is obtained, which is why it is sometimes used as a salt substitute. It is also used as a food emulsifier and stabilizer in the production of condensed milk, cream, milk powder and cream powder. It is also sometimes used as a nutrient medium for yeast cultures; a gelling agent that gives the necessary consistency; anti-caking agent (anti-caking agent) for food products.

Due to the properties of the stabilizer, KCl has also found application in the cosmetics industry, in particular in the production of various creams.

Precautions when handling the substance

Potassium chloride E508 is classified as moderately hazardous according to the safety classification of chemical substances for human exposure. May cause irritation in case of contact with skin and eyes. Also, if handled or stored incorrectly, it can pose a threat to the environment.
