SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE

Sodium hypochlorite is a colorless or slightly yellow watery liquid with an odor similar to that of household bleach. It is produced by the reaction of chlorine and sodium hydroxide.

 

Sodium hypochlorite is also known as soda bleach. Its chemical formula of NaOCl is used extensively for domestic bleach manufacturing and industrial applications such as wastewater treatment and industrial cooling water. “Hypo” is in high demand as a cost-effective way to prevent the spread of infections via water-borne diseases. It is a bleaching agent for rayon, pulp and paper, cotton, linen and jute. It is also a disinfectant and deodorant in dairies, water treatment (chlorination), household bleach, pool chlorination, and more.

 

Sodium hypochlorite is available in various concentrations of 6% to 15% and is transported in intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), bulk road tankers, plastic drums or cans of various sizes.

 

Please refer to the attached Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for more detailed information regarding the use, storage and safe handling of this product.

 

Product Uses

 

  • Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) is a compound that can be effectively used for water purification.
  • It is used on a large scale for surface purification, bleaching, odor removal, and water disinfection.
  • Sodium hypochlorite is used on a large scale. It is used in agriculture, chemical industries, paint and lime industries, food industries, glass industries, paper industries, pharmaceutical industries, synthetics industries, and waste disposal industries.
  • In the textile industry, sodium hypochlorite is used to bleach textile.
  • It is sometimes added to industrial wastewater. This is done to reduce odors.
  • Hypochlorite neutralizes sulphur hydrogen gas (SH) and ammonia (NH3).
  • It is also used to detoxify cyanide baths in metal industries.
    Hypochlorite can be used to prevent algae and shellfish growth in cooling towers.
  • In water treatment, hypochlorite is used to disinfect water.
  • In households, hypochlorite is used frequently for the purification and disinfection of the house.
