Process Flow Chart for Caustic Soda, Liq. Cl 2 & Hcl Production

Membrane Cell Technology: It employs Ion exchange membrane placed between coated Titanium anode and coated Copper cathode. It requires lower current consumption and is an environment friendly���� technology. However the caustic soda lye thus produces is of low concentration-(32%) compares to the Caustic Soda production in mercury, and the major part of it is to be further concentrated to 48-50% for use of consuming industries.

Membrane Plant: The plant carries out following operations

Brine saturation and purification

Electrolysis

Lean brine dechlorination

HCl Synthesis

Chlorine liquefaction

CCF Plant:It is used to concentrate 32% Caustic soda lye to either 50 % Caustic Soda lye or 99% Caustic Soda flakes.

Technology/Product Specifications:

PRODUCT 1: CAUSTIC SODA

Caustic Soda is a basic alkali entering into the manufacturing of a host of articles of daily use like soap, paper, and textiles. There are various concentrations available which are used by different industries. Using this technology brings about 30% reduction in electrical power requirements. This is free from pollution hazards of mercury.

PRODUCT 2: CHLORINE

Chlorine, a co-product obtained in the process of manufacturing of Caustic soda is an equally important basic chemical, inevitable for the manufacture of plastics, textiles & paper,insecticides,pharmaceuticals etc. It is also renowned water purification chemical.

PRODUCT 3: HYDROCHLORIC ACID & SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE

TCC also produces high-purity Hydrochloric Acid used for manufacture of ossein, which is exported for edible pharmaceutical application. Another by-product, sodium hypochlorite, finds its usein bleaching and disinfectant applications and also for extraction of rare earth materials.
