Calcium Chloride as a chemical products of pars universal bitumen (jahan ghir pars).LTD, has wide range of uses in industry, (CaCl2) is the ionic compound of calcium and chlorine. It is a salt that behaves as a typical Ionic Halide, with highly soluble in water and being solid at room temperature . Common applications include brine for drilling fluid mud, refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and desiccation. some of most important uses of CaCl2 in industry includes:
- ice and snow removal.
- oil-well drilling and as de-hydrant in petrochemical industry.
- dust control and removal (coal dust, mine dust, etc.).
- accelerator for concrete and as a solidifying agent in paint production.
- preservative agent for food and anti-rot treatment agent for wheat, fruits and vegetables.
- desiccant for moisture proofing.
- coagulant in rubber industry.
- chloridizing agent and additive in metallurgy (ferrous).
- additive in paper industry and de-inking of recycled paper.
- SO4 – removing agent and as a coagulant for sodium alginate in chemical industry.
- refrigeration industry.
- dye production and in printing industry.
Calcium Chloride in Oil and Gas
In the oil industry, Calcium Chloride is used in establishing and maintaining oil and gas wells. It helps well fluids gain needed consistency, increases density and stabilizes shale formations. As a completion fluid it seals well casings and displaces drilling mud. In short, Calcium Chloride is used in several applications for new or existing wells to improve efficiency and production. Calcium Chloride is used in gas and oil drilling. It helps keep gases from forming and helps sludge from getting out of hand.
Bulk of CaCl2 for de-icing by depressing the freezing point of water, is used to prevent ice formation and is used to de-ice. This usage consumes the greatest amount of calcium chloride. Calcium chloride is relatively harmless to plants and soil. As a de-icing agent, it is much more effective at lower temperatures than sodium chloride. Solutions of calcium chloride can prevent freezing at temperature as low as −52 °C (−62 °F), making it ideal for filling agricultural implement tires as a liquid ballast, aiding traction in cold climates. It is also used in domestic and industrial chemical air dehumidifiers.
calcium chloride uses in medicine:
Calcium chloride (CaCl2) has different uses in medicines, it is indicated in the immediate treatment of hypocalcemic tetany. Other therapy, such as parathyroid hormone or vitamin D, may be indicated according to the etiology of the tetany. It is also important to institute oral calcium therapy as soon as practicable.
Calcium salts have been used as adjunctive therapy in a number of conditions, including the following:Sensitivity reactions, particularly when characterized by urticaria.Insect bites or stings, such as Black Widow Spider bites.As an aid in the treatment of depression due to over-dosage of magnesium sulfate.As an aid in the management of the acute symptoms in lead colic.In cardiac resuscitation, particularly after open heart surgery, calcium chloride (calcium chloride) has been used when epinephrine has failed to improve weak or ineffective myocardial contractions.
