What is
Calcium Chloride desiccant?

Calcium chloride desiccant is a type of moisture-absorbing material that utilizes the hygroscopic properties of calcium chloride to control humidity and prevent moisture-related issues in various environments. It can be used as a multipurpose desiccant in the industrial field, such as for drying nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, and other similar compounds.

Similar to silica gel desiccant, when a calcium chloride desiccant becomes saturated with moisture, it can be regenerated by heating it to release the absorbed water, restoring its moisture-absorbing capacity for reuse.

What is the method for producing raw materials for Calcium Chloride desiccant?

method for producing Calcium Chloride Desiccant

Limestone Extraction

Obtain limestone or use brine from salt lakes, to source the primary precursor——calcium carbonate.

Solvay Process

Heat limestone to make quicklime or use the Solvay process to create soda ash and Calcium Chloride.

Hydration

Combine quicklime with water to produce slaked lime.

Calcium Chloride Formation

React slaked lime with hydrochloric acid to make Calcium Chloride solution.

Purification

Remove impurities from the solution.

Solidification

Evaporate or crystallize the solution to obtain solid Calcium Chloride.

Packaging

Package the final product for distribution and use as a desiccant.
