HCl
Hydrochloric Acid
Hydrogen Chloride (a.k.a. HCl, Hydrochloric Acid, Muriatic Acid) is a hydrogen halide and one of the most important basic industrial chemicals. It is a colorless gas, which forms white fumes upon contact with atmospheric water. Due to the high electronegativity of the chlorine atom, this molecule has a large dipole moment, and is very soluble in water and other polar solvents. Its solutions with water receive the name "Hydrochloric Acid", a strong acid with corrosive properties. Production of Hydrogen Chloride follows the chlor-alkali electrolytic process, where brine is electrolyzed producing chlorine gas and hydrogen gas. These gases are then combined in the presence of UV light, resulting in HCl.

Hydrogen Chloride Production from Hydrogen and Chlorine

This study analysis the economics of Anhydrous Hydrogen Chloride (HCl) production from hydrogen and chlorine in the United States. The process examined is a typical synthesis of Hydrogen Chloride via the direct reaction of the elements.

Details: 25 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report HCl E11A target a 25 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Hydrochloric Acid from NaCl and Sulfuric Acid (Reactor Furnace)

This report presents the economics of Hydrochloric Acid production from sodium chloride and sulfuric acid in the USA through a typical Mannheim process in which the reaction occurs in a reactor furnace. Initially, sulfuric acid reacts with sodium chloride producing hydrogen chloride and sodium sulfate, a by-product. Subsequently, the gas is absorbed in water and Hydrochloric Acid is obtained as the final product.

The cost analyses presented in the report HCl E21A target a 15 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Hydrochloric Acid from NaCl and Sulfuric Acid (Fluidized Bed Reactor)

This report presents the economics of Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) production from sodium chloride and sulfuric acid in the United States . In this process, sulfuric acid reacts with sodium chloride in a fluidized bed reactor, forming hydrogen chloride and sodium sulfate, a by-product. Subsequently, the gas is absorbed in water and Hydrochloric Acid is obtained as the final product.

The cost analyses presented in the report HCl E22A target a 15 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Hydrochloric Acid Production from Sodium Chloride and Sulfur

Feasibility analysis of a typical Hargreaves process for Hydrochloric Acid production from sodium chloride and sulfur in the USA. In this process, first sulfur is subjected to an oxidation reaction producing sulfur dioxide. Sulfur dioxide and sodium chloride are then heated up to the point in which they start a spontaneous and exothermic reaction that produces hydrogen chloride, which is subsequently absorbed in water to produce Hydrochloric Acid as the final product. Sodium sulfate is generated as a by-product.

The cost analyses presented in the report HCl E31A target a 15 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Hydrogen Chloride Production from Polyvinyl Chloride Waste

This study approaches the economics of gaseous Hydrogen Chloride (HCl) production from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) waste in the United States. The process under analysis is a pyrolysis conducted in two continuous reactors. Initially, HCl and chlorinated hydrocarbons (Cl-HCs) are removed from the plastic in the first reactor and HCl is purified. The plastic is then sent to a second reactor to finish pyrolysis and, finally, the pyrolysis gases are directed to distillation to produce benzene and fuel oil as by-products

The cost analyses presented in the report HCl E41A target a 2 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Hydrochloric Acid Production from Hydrogen and Chlorine

This study analysis the economics of Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) production from hydrogen and chlorine in the United States. The process examined is a typical synthesis of Hydrogen Chloride via the direct reaction of the elements. In this process, hydrogen and chlorine, undergo a direct reaction forming hydrogen chloride, which is subsequently passed through an absorber to produce a 35 wt% hydrochloric acid as final product.
