Potassium Chlorate Production Cost Analysis 2020

Potassium chlorate is a chemical compound containing potassium, along with chlorine and oxygen. In appearance, it is a white crystalline substance. It is known to be the most common chlorate in commercial use. It is used as an oxidizing agent in the preparation of oxygen. It is used as a disinfectant.  Potassium chlorate is also used in safety matches, explosives, and fireworks. It can be utilised in cultivation as well, in which  it is used to force the blossoming stage of the longan tree, causing it to produce fruit in warmer climates.

Potassium chlorate, combined with silver fulminate, is used in trick noise-makers known as ‘crackers or ‘snappers’ or ‘pop-its’ or ‘bang-snaps’, a popular type of novelty firework. Another application of potassium chlorate is its use as the oxidizer in a smoke composition like the one that used in smoke grenades. Potassium chlorate is also used in chemical oxygen generators or the chlorate candles or oxygen candles. In chemical labs, this chemical compound is often used to oxidize HCl and release small amounts of gaseous chlorine.
