Parchem supplies Calcium Hypochlorite!

Jul 15, 2013

Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals is the premier supplier of Calcium Hypochlorite for water treatment and industrial disinfectant applications. 

Calcium Hypochlorite [CAS: 7778-54-3] is used in water treatment and other applications for its disinfectant and antibacterial properties.  Calcium hypochlorite is used in swimming pool treatment applications as a fungicide and disinfectant to remove organic contaminants in the water. Calcium hypochlorite is also widely used as a water purifier in the treatment of wells, controlling algae and slime in water mains and reservoirs, and treating sewage to control odors.

Calcium Hypochlorite is a chlorinated inorganic chemical with strong oxidizing properties that is commonly used as a disinfectant. It has similar properties and is used in similar applications as sodium hypochlorite, also known as bleach. However, calcium hypochlorite has a larger amount of available chlorine than its sodium counterpart in solutions and it is generally considered more stable than sodium hypochlorite. Parchem supplies calcium hypochlorite solutions, powders, and pellets in the form of a yellowish white, crystalline solid.

Along with water treatment, Calcium Hypochlorite is also used as a disinfectant for plastics and containers that store food and beverages.  Similarly, it is also used in products that disinfect production equipment in many facilities and manufacturing sites.  Although calcium hypochlorite is primarily used as a disinfectant and sanitizing compound, it is sometimes used as an ingredient in weed killing sprays and other toxic biocides. It also has many applications as an industrial bleaching agent. For example, it is used in certain products designed to bleach wood pulp for the paper manufacturing industry.

The Calcium Hypochlorite provided by Parchem is available in multiple grades and forms. Contact Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals today or click here for a quick quote on Calcium Hypochlorite!
