Barium Chloride is one of the most common water-soluble salts of barium, appearing as colorless to white crystals or colorless monoclinic plates. On an industrial scale, production of barium chloride is carried out by the reaction of barium sulfide solution with hydrochloric acid. Alternatively, the reaction of barium sulfide solution with chlorine is of commercial interest. Along with other chlorides, Barium Chloride is used as a component of melt quenching baths for steel. It is also employed as a starting material for the production of sulfide-free blanc fixe grades and, instead of barium carbonate, to remove sulfate from solutions. Finally, it has a limited importance as a stabilizer for plastics.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Barium Chloride production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
