Application of Sodium Bicarbonate

Sodium bicarbonate is a kind of white crystalline powder, which is an important chemical raw material and has a wide range of uses.

1. Sodium bicarbonate food grade

Sodium bicarbonate food grade is an important food additive used in the production of clams, fermented bread, and cakes. By reacting sodium bicarbonate with acidic substances, carbon dioxide gas can be produced, promote dough to rise and make baked goods softer.

2. Sodium bicarbonate pharmaceutical grade

Sodium bicarbonate can also be used in pharmaceutical industry for the production of peptic ulcers, myocardial infarction, and metabolic disorders drugs such as acidosis. In addition, in oral care, sodium bicarbonate can be used as a mouthwash to clean the mouth and prevent bad breath.

3. Sodium bicarbonate feed grade

Sodium bicarbonate feed grade can be added to poultry and livestock feed to promote digestion and improve the production efficiency of animals.

4. Cleaning agents

Sodium bicarbonate is also widely used in the manufacturing of cleaning agents and detergents. It can be used as neutralizing agents of acidic cleaning agent, can also be used to remove carbonized substances and fats.

5. Metallurgical industry

In metallurgical industry, sodium bicarbonate can be used as a desulfurizer and reducing agent. In steel production, sodium bicarbonate can be used to remove sulfides and oxides in steel slurry.

6. Glass industry

Sodium bicarbonate can also be used in glass industry as a component of glass. It can lower the melting point of glass, makes it easier to process.

7. Environmental protection industry

Sodium bicarbonate also has important environmental significance, as it can be used to absorb and neutralize the harmful substances such as carbon dioxide and sulfur oxide in the atmosphere, it can also be used for sewage treatment, treating heavy metal ions in wastewater.

Overall, sodium bicarbonate is a very practical chemical product in food, medicine, metallurgy, glass and environmental protection, it has important applications in various fields.
