used for petroleum
Potassium Carbonate, commonly called potash or pearlash, is a chemical
compound which is also known as K2CO3. It is the substance that forms strong
water solution. In 1742, Antonio Campanella discovered potassium carbonate and
found it to be the primary component of potash. Pearlash is created when potash is
heated in a Kiln to remove impurities. Before baking powder was discovered in the
late 18th century, Pearlash is used to bake breads. Potassium Carbonate used in
many different functions. They are odorless and also known as potash or pearl ash
Potassium Carbonate is white and can be powdered or be in a crystalline structure
and it is are odorless. Potassium Carbonate absorbs water easily from air and it
dissolves in water. They can be formed with other compounds and also can be
manufactured in other uses. Potassium Carbonate is soluble in water but insoluble
in ethyl alcohol. Potassium carbonate abstracts in water into potassium (K+) and
carbonate ions (CO32-). The dissolution/dissociation in water releases heat also
when potassium carbonate is added to water, an efficient reaction occur. When the
substance decomposes at high temperature, the vapor pressure of the substance is
very low and a melting point cannot be found.
When Potassium Carbonate is mixed with water, it causes it to heat up. But it
only lasts for short time. For example, grass jelly is being used by Potassium
Carbonate which is a common Asian cuisine. Also, commonly when we bake
thick bread such as gingerbread, Potassium Carbonate is used too.
In the lab
For drying agent in the lab, Potassium Carbonate is the best example for
calcium chloride and magnesium but not for acidic. Potassium Carbonate
removes small traces of acidic impurities to have better conservation.
Potassium Carbonate can also be formed as an electrolyte which helps in cold
fusion experiment. To measure heat, electrolyte with heavy water is used.
Before they are distilled, Potassium carbonate can also be used to dry
ketones, alcohols, and amines.
Q: Do you supply product report?
A: Yes. We'll give you product analysis report before shipping.
Q:How do you control the quality?
A: We will make samples before mass production, and after sample approved, we'll
begin mass production. Doing 100% inspection during production, then do random
inspection before packing.
Q: what’s your packing ?
A: Normally,standard export packing,also we can do packing as your require
