Specific classification and application of Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate (MgCl2.6H2O)


Magnesium chloride hexahydrate means that it contains six water molecules, the chemical formula MgCl2·6H2O.

There are many production processes of magnesium chloride hexahydrate in its manufacturers., such as magnesium chloride hexahydrate produced by brine process called halogen tablets, halogen powder, etc.; There is also magnesium chloride hexahydrate made by acid process, which is characterized by a relatively white color in appearance and a clear presentation. These two are the main production processes of existing magnesium chloride manufacturers.

Magnesium chloride hexahydrate Classification:

Magnesium chloride hexahydrate is divided into food grade, industrial grade and aquaculture feed grade according to its different applications. Food grade: It is mainly used as a coagulant or thickening agent in food, such as marinated tofu, etc., which is mainly used in foods containing protein. There are more applications on the industrial level, mainly using its adsorption capacity as a desiccant, coagulant, release agent, flame retardant and so on. The culture grade mainly uses the magnesium, calcium, sodium contained in it to increase the absorption of trace elements in fish, shrimp, crabs, algae, vegetation, etc. According to the appearance of the product, it is divided into hexahydrate magnesium chloride tablets, hexahydrate magnesium chloride particles, hexahydrate magnesium chloride powder, etc., whose purpose is mainly to facilitate the use of users. In the color is divided into a variety of such as clear, milk white, gray, brown, the first three are called white magnesium, and the latter is called Pu Mei. In terms of content, magnesium chloride hexahydrate is divided into 43%, 44%, 45%, 46%, 47% of magnesium chloride content, and the commonly used magnesium chloride content is about 46%.

Magnesium chloride hexahydrate application:

1. Raw materials for other chemicals: raw materials for the production of magnesium carbonate, magnesium hydroxide, magnesium oxide and other magnesium products.

2. Building materials industry in magnesite products can be made of high quality magnesium tile, high quality fire board, magnesium packing box, magnesium decoration plate, light wall panel,

3. Machinery industry: abrasive tools and stoves are mainly used as release agents.

4. Transportation industry: used as road deicing and melting agent, deicing speed is fast, and the role of preventing ice.

5. In coal mines: as a flame retardant, highway dust prevention agent, etc

6. Building materials: magnesium oxide and magnesite (MGO) for the preparation of hard corrosion resistant magnesium cement, can be used for the preparation of artificial marble, clay tile, floor, ceiling, decorative board, fire board, greenhouse support, inorganic glass steel greenhouse skeleton, magnesite insulation chicken coop, wave color tile, ventilation duct, partition panel, magnesite manhole cover, bathtub, door and window frame and mobile houses. It is used as antifreeze in winter construction.
