Hydrogen Chloride Production Cost Analysis 2020
Hydrogen chloride is a colourless gas at room temperature that can form white fumes of hydrochloric acid upon contact with atmospheric water vapour. It is a hydrogen halide. It has a strong odour and condenses at -85° C or at -121° F, while it freezes at -114° C or -173° F. This gas is very miscible in water. At 20° C or 68° F, water can dissolve 477 times its volume of hydrogen chloride.
Hydrochloric acid is produced by mixing gaseous hydrogen chloride in water. Because of the corrosive nature of this acid, ceramic, glass, or tantalum apparatus is seldom utilised in its production. Hydrochloric acid is generally marketed as a solution with 28–35% by weight hydrogen chloride, which is better known as concentrated hydrochloric acid.
Anhydrous liquid hydrogen chloride is available, but since heavy and expensive containers are needed to place it, the utilisation of hydrogen chloride in this matter is limited. It finds wide applications in the chemical and semiconductor industries.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Hydrogen Chloride production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
