Soluble sodium silicate
In most cases, it is used in the production of sodium water glass
. To do this, soluble sodium silicate is placed in a leaching autoclave with a rotation mechanism, into which heated water and steam are fed. This type of soluble silicate is popular due to its cheapness – the price for a soluble sodium-based silicate is the most affordable.
It is mainly used to produce water glass, but as a dry component, soluble silicate can be used in dry building mixes, as well as in other industries.
Soluble sodium silicate is an integral component of various building mixes and adsorbents. Many processes in chemical products factories also require the use of this product.
Soluble sodium silicate is rarely used as an independent product, but more often it is still a raw material for producing water glass. To do this, the soluble sodium silicate is dissolved in water under high pressure and at high temperature in leaching autoclaves of various designs (rotating horizontal or vertical static).
