Sodium Hypochlorite (NaOCl)
Inchem's Sodium Hypochlorite plant has the capacity to produce over 30,000 tons per year after upgrade from batch process to continuous operation.
Inchem's NaOCl is used in households and by industries such as poultry and dairy farms, meat and food processors, petroleum refineries, textiles, pulp and paper mills, soap manufacturing, bottling, wood processing, laundromats, hospitals, waste and sewage treatment.
Some uses of this product include bleaching, disinfection, odor control, chlorination, oxidation, coagulation, and precipitation.
Ferric Chloride (FeCl)
Ferric Chloride is used in water treatment as a flocculating agent, in metal surface treatment as an etching agent for engraving, photography and circuitry and as a deodorizing agent for sewage and industrial waste. Inchem.s customers for this product are from the bottling industry, semiconductors and electronic industries.
Inchem produces its FeCl3 by reacting scrap iron with Hydrochloric Acid and Chlorine. Inchem produces 38% concentration FeCl3 at 3,000 tons per year.
Hydrochloric Acid (HCl)
Hydrochloric acid is produced as a co-product from the Mannheim process where Potassium Chloride is reacted with concentrated sulfuric acid to produce Potassium Sulfate.
Hydrochloric acid is used in the following industries:
Inchem's Hydrochloric Acid plant has a rated capacity of 24,000 metric tons per year.
Potassium Sulfate (K2SO4)
Inchem is the pioneer manufacturer of this chemical in the Philippines. Apart from distribution of this product in the Philippines, this is also exported to various Asian countries, Australia and New Zealand. Inchem's two furnaces produce approximately 22,000 tons of potassium sulfate per year.
Potassium Sulfate is mainly used as fertilizer for its rich source of potassium. However, Inchem also supplies special grade Potassium Sulfate to the plasterboard industry
Calcium Chloride (CaCl2)
Inchem imports Calcium Chloride flakes at 74% concentration.
Inchem's CaCl2 is used industries such as paper mills, ice plants and traders industries. Its uses include ice control, dust control and brining.
Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH; Caustic Soda)
Inchem now imports 50% liquid caustic soda and trades this chemical to various industries in the Philippines.
Caustic Soda is used in various industries such as:
