Hydrochloric acid is our by-product during chlorination of paraffin oil. We have developed a special purification process through continuous settling by a cascading method and top skimming to reduce the oil content in the acid to the required ppm levels.

Application of Hydrochloric Acid

Its applications include the large-scale production of certain compounds (such as vinyl chloride for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic), removal of rust and scale from metals, petroleum production, and ore processing. Smaller-scale applications include the production of gelatin and other ingredients in food, and leather processing.
