Description Of Sodium Hypochorite

At JAL AQUA INTERNATIONAL, high purity sodium hypochlorite is produced as a by-product during the calcium hypochlorite production cycle. Sodium hypochlorite is also known as "liquid chlorine" or “laundry bleach”. It is a chemical compound with the chemical formula NaClO. The following reaction is used for the production of sodium hypochlorite:

NaOH + Cl2 -> NaClO + NaCl + H2O
Sodium hydroxide + chlorine -> sodium hypochlorite + sodium chloride + water

Sodium Hypochlorite

Sodium hypochlorite is among the widely consumed disinfect due to the following reasons:

  • Wide antimicrobial spectrum: it is used to eliminate organic matter present in the water. Organic matter such as microorganism, algae etc.
  • Instant action against bacteria: it acts as a killing agent for bacteria persisting in water.
  • Reduced to chloride ions causing oxidation: upon mixing with water, sodium hypochlorite dissociates and produces free chlorine ions. Thus, chlorination of water takes place.
  • It’s Reasonable persistence in treated portable water.
  • It’s ease of use and solubility in water.
  • Being a Cheap disinfectant as compared to most disinfectant.
  • The solution is non-flammable when exposed to air.

Applications of Sodium Hypochlorite

Sodium Hypochlorite for Swimming pool treatment:
10-12% purity sodium hypochlorite is used for the chlorination of swimming pools. Being cheap and comparatively effective chlorination method, it is widely accepted as swimming pool disinfectant for killing organic matter, slime and bacteria present in the water.

Sodium Hypochlorite for Bleaching:
dilute solution of our high purity sodium hypochlorite solution is used as a household bleach. such as laundry bleaching.

Sodium Hypochlorite for Cleaning:
sodium hypochlorite is used for removing stains and marks. Adequate concentration of sodium hypochlorite can be used to remove mold stains, utensil stains or surface stains. Organic dirt exposed to hypochlorite becomes non-volatile and soluble in water, thus easier to remove.

Sodium Hypochlorite for Disinfections:
sodium hypochlorite can be used as a sanitizer for food processing equipment, food contact surfaces, sanitizing surfaces in brewing industry,toilet surfaces. Alongside cleaning it is also used for deodorizing, it removes fouling smell from the surfaces.

Sodium Hypochlorite for Waste water treatment:
sodium hypochlorite is used for water chlorination. it helps treating dilute cyanide wastewater. It oxidizes toxic cyanide waste to non-toxic cyanides. Industries such as power plants, pulp and paper mills etc. uses sodium hypochlorite for removing slime and bacteria from its water system.
