Reaction Plants

Ferric Chloride Plants.

3V TECH technology for Ferric Chloride production is based on 3V TECH glass-lined reactors, high performance equipment for process requirements. Ferric Chloride can be obtained from different raw materials: Ferrous Oxide, Ferric Oxide and Iron Scraps.Ferric Chloride 40% from Ferrous Oxide, scales from rolling-mil process, is obtained through attack with 32% HCl followed by chlorination that assure complete conversion to Ferric Chloride.Ferric Chloride 40% from Ferric Oxide, by-product of steel mills, is obtained by simple reaction with 32% HCl.Ferric Chloride 40% from Iron Scraps is obtained by attack of ferric chloride with iron into a dissolution vessel. The  resulting ferrous chloride solution is filtered and oxidized to ferric chloride in the chlorination section by chlorine gas.

Where it is installed/applied?

Ferric Chloride 40% solution is used as a flocculant in sewage treatment and drinking water production. When small quantities of ferric chloride are added to the raw water, iron(III) hydroxide precipitates and adsorbs finely divided solids and colloids.
