Blueline Industries produce soda ash that has dissolved compounds like magnesium and calcium compounds. Such sodium carbonate is used for removing the temporary and permanent hardness present in water.
In glass manufacturing industry, our soda ash is the largest application for the production of containers, fiberglass insulation, or flat glass for the housing, commercial building, and automotive industries. Also our soda ash is used to clean the air and soften water. As environmental concerns grow, demand increases for soda ash used in the removal of sulfur dioxide and hydrochloric acid from stack gases.
Chemical producers use soda ash as an intermediate to manufacture products that sweeten soft drinks (corn sweeteners), relieve physical discomfort (sodium bicarbonate) and improve foods and toiletries (phosphates). Household detergents and paper products are a few other common examples of readily identifiable products using soda ash.
Best Water Softening Chemical
Hard water has dissolved compounds, usually calcium or magnesium compounds. Our soda ash can be used for removing temporary and permanent hardness of the water.
As soda ash is water-soluble and magnesium carbonate and calcium carbonate are insoluble, so it is used to soften water by removing Mg2+ and Ca2+. These ions form insoluble solid precipitates upon treatment with carbonate ions:
Great Food Additive And Cooking
Soda ash is a food additive and used as an acidity regulator, anticaking agent, raising agent, and stabilizer. It is one of the components of kansui, which is a solution of alkaline salts used to give ramen noodles their characteristic flavor and texture.
Additionally, it is used in the production of snus to stabilize the pH of the final product. Our soda ash is used in the production of sherbet powder too. The cooling and fizzing sensation result from the endothermic reaction between sodium carbonate and a weak acid, commonly citric acid, releasing carbon dioxide gas, which occurs when the sherbet is moistened by saliva.
