Caustic Soda is produced by multi-stage evaporation process and
transformed into the solid state either as micro spherical
particles called Prills (Pearl) or as Caustic Soda Solid (Fused).
Caustic Soda is produced by SODA in two forms:
hygroscopic and deliquescent (soluble in moisture absorbed
carbon dioxide present in the air to form sodium carbonate.
such as lead, zinc, aluminum, magnesium and other alloys,
resulting in evolution of hydrogen.
non-combustible and has no explosive limit.
Soda in the form of Prills offers distinct
advantages over flakes, as enumerated below:
optimum size of prills facilitate good blending
characteristics in dry mix formulation and posses excellent
hard and crush resistant as they do not easily break down
into irritant dust. Low irritant dust means low moisture
absorption, greatly reduces the risk of caking.
dissolve faster needing only a shorter period of agitation.
denser than flakes, occupy less space for the same weight of
Caustic. This permits optimum utilization of storage
facilities and minimal transport cost.
