Salt in the chemical industry
The chemical industry uses many salts as raw materials for the extraction of chlorine and lye. Here, too, the raw materials must be pure in composition. Every form of contamination forms a disruption to the production of the end product.
In addition, there is a risk of delays in the production process, or even damage to the process equipment if there are iron particles in the raw materials.
These losses are often claimed back from the supplier when it becomes apparent that the source of the pollution lies there and it has not done everything in its power to prevent it.
During the entire production process, there is a risk of foreign bodies. These can be a reason to reject or recall complete production batches from the market. The cost of this is incalculable. Not to mention reputational damage.
Both the degree of dissolution and the chloride in salt and the sometimes slightly abrasive properties in certain forms mean that the design must be well thought out and the materials and finishing must be of the highest level. This also applies to the magnetic systems for the deferrization process.
- Damage to process machines as a result of unwanted metal
- Foreign bodies in the end product
- Rejection due to product contamination
- Damage claims as a result of foreign bodies
- Discolouration of the end product
- Reputational damage due to impurities
- Use of magnets when unloading bulk loads
- Application of magnets upon entry into the processing plant / storage / silo
- Interim deferrization during the salt processing
- Use of magnets as final cleaning and checking of the final product prior to final packaging / shipping
