Hydrochloric Acid

PLANTS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID BY ELECTROLYSIS

Our electrolysis plants produce hydrochloric acid or HCI, an aqueous solution of hydrogen chloride gas. It has various industrial and commercial applications.

HCl is manufactured by the combustion of hydrogen gas with chlorine gas. Subsequently, absorption of hydrogen chloride (HCl) gas in water occurs to produce hydrochloric acid at a concentration of 33% w/w.

It is used for many applications, especially in the chemical industry. Some of its best-known uses are:

FAQ ABOUT OUR HYDROCHLORIC ACID PRODUCTION PLANTS

All the information in detail

Our specialization in the production of hydrochloric acid, as in all other chlorine applications, derives from electrolysis. In this case producing an aqueous solution of hydrogen chloride. This process begins with the combustion of hydrogen gas with chlorine gas, followed by the absorption of hydrogen chloride (HCl) gas in water to produce hydrochloric acid with a concentration of 32% w/w. Our technology and stability in electrolysis provides chlorine in continuity to enable the manufacture of HCl of high purity and consistency, suitable for a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.

The quality and safety of our hydrochloric acid production is guaranteed through strict quality controls and compliance with safety regulations. Our hydrochloric acid has a concentration of 32%, with maximum levels of 1 ppm of iron (Fe), 1 ppm of heavy metals (such as Pb), 5 ppm of free chlorine, 0.2 ppm of additional heavy metals, and 1 ppm of fluorine. These strict parameters ensure a high quality product, suitable for sensitive uses in the chemical, electronic and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, we take stringent safety measures in the handling of our chemicals, in accordance with the indications in the safety data sheets, to protect both our personnel and the environment.

The hydrochloric acid we produce in our facilities is used in a variety of industrial applications, standing out for its versatility. Some of the most relevant applications include:

  • The production of chemical products, such as inorganic chlorides, plastics, fertilizers and pharmaceuticals.
  • The regulation of acidity in chemical solutions.
    As a cleaning and stripping agent.
  • Removal of limestone and other mineral incrustations.
  • In the treatment and galvanizing of metals in metallurgy.
  • To descale lime and other dirt, as well as in the unclogging of pipes.
  • To regulate the pH of water in swimming pools.
  • In the cosmetics industry for the manufacture of dyes, pigments and bleaches.
  • In the food industry, in the production of gelatin and as a preservative in dairy and confectionery products.
  • In the production of packaging in the plastics industry.
    In the acidification of oil wells.

These applications demonstrate our ability to meet the needs of a wide range of industrial sectors, providing high quality and efficient chemical solutions.

In the construction of our hydrochloric acid production plants, we are committed to incorporating innovative technologies to optimize both the efficiency and safety of our production processes. These improvements include advanced process control systems that continuously monitor and adjust reaction conditions in real time, ensuring that hydrochloric acid quality meets desired standards. These systems act on critical variables such as pH, temperature, conductivity and working pressures, among others. In addition, we adopt strategies focused on waste minimization and by-product recycling, which contribute to reducing the environmental impact of our activities. The implementation of state-of-the-art safety systems ensures the comprehensive protection of our employees and the environment, in line with the strictest international standards.

This focus on technical precision and environmental commitment reflects our dedication to achieving excellence in the production of hydrochloric acid, ensuring a high quality and safe product for use in key industrial applications.
