What Are The Uses Of Soda Ash In Life?
- Oct 15, 2018 -

Soda is one of the most important chemical raw materials, which is used to make chemicals, cleaning agents, detergents, photography and pharmaceutical products.


Most of them are for industry, and a small part is for civilian use. In industrial soda ash, mainly light industry, building materials, chemical industry, accounting for about 2/3, followed by metallurgy, textile, petroleum, national defense, medicine and other industries. The glass industry is the largest consumer of soda ash, and 0.2 tons of soda ash per ton of glass. Chemical industry is used for making water glass, sodium dichromate, sodium nitrate, sodium fluoride, baking soda, borax, sodium phosphate and so on. Metallurgical industry is used as smelting flux, flotation agent for ore dressing, steelmaking and antimony smelting as desulfurizer. Printing and dyeing industry is used as soft water agent. Leather industry is used for degreasing, neutralizing chrome tanning and improving the alkalinity of chrome tanning. It is also used in the production of synthetic detergent additives such as sodium tripolyphosphate and other sodium phosphate. Food grade soda is used to produce monosodium glutamate, pasta, etc.


Sodium carbonate is one of the important chemical raw materials, which is widely used in light industry, daily chemical, building materials, chemical industry, food industry, metallurgy, textiles, petroleum, national defense, medicine and other fields. It is also used as raw materials, cleaning agents, detergents for other chemicals, photography and analysis. Followed by metallurgy, textiles, petroleum, national defense, medicine and other industries. The glass industry is the largest consumer of soda ash, and 0.2 tons of soda ash per ton of glass. In industrial soda ash, mainly light industry, building materials, chemical industry, accounting for about 2/3: followed by metallurgy, textile, petroleum, national defense, medicine and other industries.


The glass industry is a large consumer sector of soda ash. The consumption of soda ash per ton of glass is 0.2T. It is mainly used for float glass, picture tube glass shell, optical glass and so on.


It can also be applied to other departments such as chemical industry and metallurgy. The use of heavy soda ash can reduce the flying of alkali dust, reduce the consumption of raw materials, improve working conditions, improve product quality, reduce the erosion of alkali powder on refractories, and prolong the service life of kilns.

As a buffer, neutralizer and dough improver, it can be used in pastries and pastries, and can be used in moderation according to production needs.


It is used as detergent for wool rinsing, bath salts and medicine, and alkali in tanning.

Used in the food industry, as a neutralizer, bulking agent, such as the manufacture of amino acids, soy sauce and flour products such as steamed bread, bread and so on. It can also be added into the pasta with soda water to increase elasticity and ductility. Sodium carbonate can also be used to produce monosodium glutamate.


Special reagent for color TV set

It is used in the pharmaceutical industry for acid and osmotic laxatives.

Anhydrous sodium carbonate is used in chemical and electrochemical deoiling, electroless copper plating, aluminum etching, electrolytic polishing of aluminum and its alloys, chemical oxidation of aluminum, sealing after phosphating, rust prevention between processes, electrolytic chromium removal coating and chromium removal oxide film, etc. It is also used in pre-plating copper, steel, iron and steel alloy electrolytes.


Metallurgical industry is used as smelting flux, flotation agent for ore dressing, steelmaking and antimony smelting as desulfurizer.


Printing and dyeing industry is used as soft water agent.

Leather industry is used for degreasing, neutralizing chrome tanning and improving the alkalinity of chrome tanning.


The benchmark for determining acid solution is quantitatively analyzed. Determination of aluminum, sulfur, copper, lead and zinc. Test urine and whole blood glucose. Analyze the cosolvent of silica in cement. Metallographic analysis, etc.
