Sulphuric Acid

Sulphuric Acid

Screenshot_1Sulphuric acid (alternative spelling sulphuric acid) is a highly corrosive strong mineral acid with the molecular formula H2SO4. It is a pungent, colorless to slightly yellow viscous liquid which is soluble in water at all concentrations. Sometimes, it is dyed dark brown during production to alert people to its hazards. The historical name of this acid is oil of vitriol.
Sulphuric acid is a diprotic acid and shows different properties depending upon its concentration. Its corrosiveness on other materials, like metals, living tissues (e.g. skin and flesh) or even stones, can be mainly ascribed to its strong acidic nature and, if concentrated, strong dehydrating and oxidizing property. Sulphuric acid at a high concentration can cause very serious damage upon contact, as it not only causes chemical burns via hydrolysis, but also secondary thermal burns via dehydration. It burns cornea and can lead to permanent blindness if splashed onto eyes. Accordingly, safety precautions should be strictly observed when handling it. Moreover, it is hygroscopic, readily absorbing water vapour from the air.

Sulphuric acid has a wide range of applications including domestic acidic drain cleaner, electrolyte in lead-acid batteries and various cleaning agents. It is also a central substance in the chemical industry. Principal uses include mineral processing, fertilizer manufacturing, oil refining, wastewater processing, and chemical synthesis. It is widely produced with different methods, such as contact process, wet sulfuric acid process and some other methods.

Sulphuric Acid is a strong acidic acid. It is most widely used as the most basic material in chemical, fertiliser, metallurgy, and pharmaceutical industry and hence its called industrial blood. Sulphuric Acid is colorless and light brown solution, soluble in water and could emit large dilution heat. It has strong acidity, corrosivity and oxidization. It is stable in normal temperature and pressure. It may combust and explode when it contacts with organic and inorganic substances. Extreme care should be taken while storing, transporting, It is highly recommended to use anticorrosive tank for transportation.

We manufacture 100 Tons per Day Sulphuric Acid from our own Sulphur melting plant at Nidadavole ,West Godavari Dist.,  Andhra Pradesh.    Sulphuric Acid produced is used for captive consumption and for industrial supply.
