ALUMINIUM CHLORIDE ANHYDROUS (ALCL3)

   Physical Properties:


Aluminum Chloride Anhydrous is derieved from the purified gases Chloride with high purity molten Aluminium. Chemically pure Aluminium Chloride Anhydrous is a yellowish white crystal which sublimes at 180°C. Only at pressures above 2.5 atm and temperature above 190°C is a liquid state.


   Product Specification of Aluminum Chloride Solution



Appearance Clear Liquid
Baume 32 Degree
Solubility Easily Soluble in Water
Iron Contain 30 ppm Max

   Chemical Properties:


AluminiumChloride is anhydrous, non-explosive, nonflammable but a Corrosive solid. It releases fumes of hydrochloride acid in contact with moist air. Any contact with water resulits in an exothermis reaction, the wiolence of which depends on the grade of Aluminum Chloride involved.


   Application:


Aluminium Chloride is Anydrous is a versatile inorganic chemical which finds application in a large number of chemical reaction and syntheses.

   Safety and Storage

Aluminum Chloride Anhydrous reacts with water or moisture generating Heat and hydrochloride acid fumes which irritates the respiratory tract. Thus all areas where it is stored & handled must be dry and well ventilated. Bulk handling system must be waterproof and unloaded with dry nitroen or dry air system. Storage should be away from automatic sprinkler system and combustile materials. Direct contact with the skin cases thermal andacid burns. Safety googles, rubber shoes, rubber gloves and coveralls made of acid resistant maerials should be worn while handling the product. Any contavt with the skin or eye should be flushed with large quantities of water and a physician should be called.


Environmental questions should also be considered while handling Aluminium Chloride Anydrous as the fumes exuding from excessive exposure of the product are environmently objectionable.


Base Metal Chemicals has provided proper collection system and Scrubbers to avoid damage to the environment.
