Global Ferric Sulfate Market: Overview
Ferric sulfate is a yellow crystalline solid which is produced by the reaction of sulfuric acid and an oxidizing agent. The sulfate is acidic in nature and corrosive to copper and galvanized steels. Ferric sulfate is soluble in water and is hygroscopic in nature. Various sources of ferric sulfate include mikasaite, lausenite, and kornelite. Ferric sulfate is extensively used as a coagulant in wastewater treatment applications. Grades of ferric sulfates depend on the change in concentration of iron. Key applications of ferric sulfate include arsenic removal, wastewater treatment, drinking water processing, heavy metals removal, odor control, phosphorous removal, selenium removal, sludge thickening conditioning, and dewatering. Ferric sulfate is available in solid and solution forms. Chemical reactions of ferric sulfate in the coagulation process are similar to that of the alum; however, it is relative solubility and its pH range differ significantly from that of the alum.
