Potassium chloride

Potassium chloride

Potassium chloride is a salt that is made up of potassium and chlorine. It is the most important salt that consumes more potassium salts. It (KCl) is a soluble salt that is an extremely efficient shale stabiliser when drilling hydro sensitive clays and shales. Inhibition is provided through ion exchange; the potassium chloride ion enters between the individual clay platelets in the shale so that they are held together, thus eliminating entry of water from the drilling fluid. KCl powder is a high purity, dry crystalline inorganic salt used to form clear brine used in workover and completion operations which require densities raning from 8.4 to 9.7 lb/gal (1007 to 1162 kg/m3)

Application of Potassium Chloride

Potassium Chloride is used in medicine, lethal injections, scientific applications, food processing, soaps, and as a sodium-free substitute for table salt for people concerned about the health effects of sodium.
It is fluid fertilizers KCl is the principal source of K in fluid fertilizers, because it is the most soluble and least cost of the major K sources. Fluid fertilizers are available as suspensions and as clear liquid fertilizers.
