2.Properties:
The chemical compound potassium chloride (KCl) is a metal halide salt composed of potassium and chlorine. In its pure state, it is odorless and has a white or colorless vitreous crystal appearance, with a crystal structure that cleaves easily in three directions. Potassium chloride crystals are face-centered cubic. Potassium chloride is occasionally known as “muriate of potash,” particularly when used as a fertilizer. Potash varies in color from pink or red to white depending on the mining and recovery process used. White potash, sometimes referred to as soluble potash, is usually higher in analysis and is used primarily for making liquid starter fertilizers. KCl is used in medicine, scientific applications, and food processing. It occurs naturally as the mineral sylvite and in combination with sodium chloride as sylvinite.
3.Applications:
In food industry, it is used as salt substitutes, nutrition enhancers, gelling, yeast food,flavor regulator,PH value.And also to use as enhancing the potassium to prepare athles beverage.
4.Packing details:
Packing: It is packed with polyethylene bag as inner, and a composite paper bag as the outer layer.The net weight of each bag is 25kg. Storage and Transport: It should be stored in a dry,ventilative and clean warehouse, kept away from moisture and hot,futhermore, it should be stored separately from poisonous.
