Magnesium Hydroxide as Neutralization Agent of Acid Wastewater

prev next
Commercial name: Brucite
Chemical content: Mg(OH)2
Physical property of Magnesium Hydroxide: It is soluble in dilute acid and ammonium salt solution and it is almost insoluble in water and alcohol. Solubility of the Magnesium Hydroxide (18 ℃) is 0.0009 g / 100 g in water. It is easy to absorb carbon dioxide from the air. When heated to 350 ℃, it comes into magnesium oxide and water.
Application: Neutralization agent of acid wastewater.

Product feature for Neutralize acid wastewater:

1. No matter what kind of acid it neutralizes, its PH value is not more than 9.
2. Magnesium hydroxide is a relatively slow neutralizer. It will not scale even used to neutralize sulfuric acid.
3. Because of the activity and absorption ability of magnesium hydroxide, heavy metal will be absorbed during neutralization.
4. Magnesium hydroxide is uneasy for deposition; it is also featured with good liquidity, convenient transportation by pump and easy storage.
5. There is no need to use anticorrosive equipment since Magnesium hydroxide is not corrosive and it is completely non-toxic and harmless.
