Iron III Chloride

What is Iron III Chloride ?

Iron III Chloride, also known as Ferric Chloride, is used as a coagulating and flocculating agent in industrial water treatment and drinking water production. The color of Iron III Chloride crystals varies depending on the viewing angle. This chemical is produced by passing chlorine gas over iron powder at a temperature of 350°C. Due to its acidic properties, plastic or stainless steel tanks should be used for storage and handling. It is sold in 30-60 liter drums, IBC tanks, and tankers. When dissolved in water, Iron III Chloride undergoes hydrolysis and gives off exothermic heat. The resulting brown acidic and corrosive solution is used as a coagulating agent in wastewater treatment and drinking water production, and as an etchant for copper-based metals in printed circuit boards. Anhydrous Iron III Chloride is a strong Lewis acid and is used as a catalyst in organic synthesis.

Where is it used?

Iron III Chloride is commonly used in drinking water and wastewater treatment, as well as in copper etching processes. It is also used in the production of iron oxide pigments and as a mordant in textile production. This product is utilized for sludge conditioning and in the manufacture of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Additionally, in veterinary medicine, it can be used to treat animal claw injuries resulting from bleeding. FeCl3 is also used in energy storage systems. Blade workers have historically used it as a pattern source for etching metals to reveal flaws or for layering.
