Definition and Usage of Hydrochloric acid
Hydrochloric acid, popularly known as the spirit of salt, is a chemical compound formed from the elements hydrogen and chlorine. It exists in the gaseous state under normal pressure and at room temperature. Today, it is used in all areas from iron and steel industry to PVC, organic matter production and food industry. Besides these conveniences,

actually has a toxic content. Causes damage to many surfaces, including the human body. Care must be taken when handling this acid and necessary precautions must be taken. It has both toxic and irritating effects. Causes skin burns and respiratory tract irritation. To obtain hydrochloric acid, hydrogen gas must first be obtained. Hydrogen chloride normally boils at 110 degrees and melts at -27 to 32 degrees.
Hydrochloric acid, represented by the formula HCl, is a compound consisting of a chlorine atom and a hydrogen atom. This compound dissolves as high as 450 liters in one liter of water at room temperature. It gives a color called acid color like other acids. It has a strong effect on bases such as ammonia and sodium carbonate. If hydrochloric acid is dropped into water, it gives H+ ions. As it affects metals such as iron, zinc, aluminum, magnesium, it releases hydrogen. Although it reacts with the oxygen of the air with copper, hydrogen is not released here. Hydrochloric acid also has a rust removing effect. When carbonates react with this compound, carbon dioxide is released. When interacting with organic compounds, chlorinated products can be obtained.
- This compound is an inorganic acid used in different fields. The concentration of the acid differs according to the area of use. It is used in many areas such as pickling of steel, production of inorganic substances, forming organic compounds, maintaining pH balance. It is used in industries such as petroleum, resin regeneration, paper, medicine, paint, chemistry, textile, metal chloride production.
- Pickling of steel: Hydrochloric acid is frequently used in the pickling process for cleaning steel. First, the rust on the iron is removed with 18% concentrated hydrochloric acid. Then the pickling process is carried out.
- Obtaining organic compounds:Appearance : Clear LiquidChemical name: Muriatic acid, chlorohydric acidChemical Formula: HCLPackaging Type: 75 Kg Cans, 1200 Kg Ibcs, 20 Ton Tankeris used in the production of organic substances such as vinyl chloride produced for PVC material. Organic compounds such as activated carbon, ascornic acid, bisphenol A, polycarbonates can be obtained in this area. Phosgene obtained from hydrochloric acid is an organic substance used as a chemical weapon in World War I.
- Production of inorganic compounds: The majority of inorganic compounds are produced by the acid-base reaction. Hydrochloric acid, one of the acids in them, has a very important place. Substances such as iron chloride are separated from the water with this effect, and the waste water in the water treatment plants is cleaned. In addition, hydrochloric acid is used in the production of materials such as batteries and batteries.
- Ensuring pH control: Hydrochloric acid is used to reduce the basic value in any solution. With this, the acid-base values in the solution can be changed. This is how pH values in pool water, drinking water, food and medicines are controlled.
- Renewal of ion exchange: High quality hydrochloric acid is used in the inspection and regeneration of ion exchange. This is how it can be played on materials such as resin.

It is also used in house cleaning, leather and construction industry. Petroleum exploration is carried out with hydrochloric acid injected into the rocks. It is also used in the food industry to make additives.
