Preparation of Industrial Barium Chloride

Is mainly used barite as material which containing high components of barium sulfate barite, coal and calcium chloride is mixed, and calcined to get barium chloride, reaction is as follows:
BaSO4 + 4C + CaCl2 → BaCl2 + CaS + 4CO ↑.
Production method of Barium Chloride anhydrous: Barium chloride dihydrate is heated to above 150℃ by dehydration to obtain anhydrous barium chloride products. its
BaCl2 • 2H2O [△] → BaCl2 + 2H2O
Barium chloride can be also prepared from barium hydroxide or barium carbonate, the latter being found naturally as the mineral “Witherite”. These basic salts react to give hydrated barium chloride. On an industrial scale, it is prepared via a two-step process

1)Barium Chloride,as a cheap, soluble salt of barium, barium chloride finds wide application in the laboratory. It is commonly used as a test for sulfate ion.
2) Barium chloride is mainly used for heat treatment of metals, barium salt manufacturing, electronic instruments, and used as water softener.
3) It can be used as dehydrating agent and analysis reagents, it is used for machining heat treatment .
4) It is commonly used as a test for sulfate ion .
5) In industry, barium chloride is mainly used in the purification of brine solution in caustic chlorine plants and also in the manufacture of heat treatment salts, case hardening of steel.
6) In the manufacture of pigments, and in the manufacture of other barium salts.
7) BaCl2 is used in fireworks to give a bright green color. However, its toxicity limits its applicability.
8) Barium Chloride is also used (with Hydrochloric acid) as a test for sulfates. When these two chemicals are mixed with a sulfate salt, a white precipitate forms, which is barium sulfate.
9)For the production of PVC stabilizers, oil lubricants, barium chromate and barium fluoride.
10) For stimulating the heart and other muscles for medicinal purposes.
11) For making color kinescope glass ceramics.
12)In industry, barium chloride is mainly used chiefly in the synthesis of pigments and in the manufacture of rodenticides and pharmaceuticals.
13)As a flux in the manufacture of magnesium metal.
14)In the manufacture of caustic soda, polymers, and stabilizers.

MSDS Information

Hazardous characteristics : Barium chloride is noncombustible. It is highly toxic. When contacts boron trifluoride, violent reaction can occur. Swallowed or inhaled can cause poisoning, it is mainly through the respiratory tract and digestive tract to invade the human body, it will cause drooling and burning esophagus, stomach pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, high blood pressure, no law firm pulse, cramps, a lot of cold sweat, weak muscle strength, gait, vision and speech problems, difficulty breathing, dizziness, tinnitus, consciousness usually clear. In severe cases, it can cause sudden death. Barium ions can cause muscle stimulant, then gradually transforms into paralysis. Rat oral LD50150mg/kg, mouse peritoneal LD5054mg/kg, rats are intravenously LD5020mg/kg, orally in dog LD5090mg/kg.
First-aid measure: When skin contacts it, rinsing with water, then thoroughly washing with soap. When eye contacts, flushing with water. So that patients inhaled dust should leave from the contaminated area, move to fresh air place, rest and keep warm, if necessary, artificial respiration should be taken, seek medical attention. When swallowed, immediately rinse the mouth, gastric lavage should be taken with warm water or 5% sodium hydrosulfite for catharsis. Even swallows more than 6h, gastric lavage is also necessary. Intravenous infusion is slowly taken with 1% sodium sulfate of 500ml~1 000ml, intravenous injection can also be taken with 10% sodium thiosulfate of 10ml~20ml. Potassium and symptomatic treatment should be carried out.
Soluble barium salts of barium chloride is rapidly absorbed, so the symptoms develop rapidly, at any time cardiac arrest or respiratory muscle paralysis can cause death. Therefore, first aid must be against the clock.
Solubility in water Grams which dissolves in per 100 ml of water at different temperatures (℃):
31.2g/0 ℃; 33.5g/10 ℃; 35.8g/20 ℃; 38.1g/30 ℃; 40.8g/40 ℃
46.2g/60 ℃; 52.5g/80 ℃; 55.8g/90 ℃; 59.4g/100 ℃.
