What are the typical impurities found in your Sodium Chloride?

Sodium Chloride, commonly referred to as salt, is used extensively across various industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, and chemical manufacturing. While Sodium Chloride is highly valued for its purity, it naturally contains some impurities which vary depending on the source and production method. Vinipul Inorganics India Pvt. Ltd. provides an insight into these impurities and our efforts to minimize their presence in our products.

Common Impurities Found in Sodium Chloride

  1. Calcium and Magnesium Compounds
  • Calcium Sulphate and Magnesium Chloride: These are some of the most common impurities, which can affect the solubility and overall quality of Sodium Chloride. They are particularly prevalent in salt obtained from natural brine sources.
  1. Water Insolubles
  • Sand and Clay: Trace amounts of insoluble particles like sand and clay can be found in Sodium Chloride. These are typically inert but can affect the appearance and could lead to sediment formation in solutions.
  1. Trace Metals
  • Iron, Lead, and Cadmium: Trace amounts of metals can be present due to the natural geological sources of the salt. Although these are found in extremely low concentrations, they are carefully monitored due to their potential health implications.
  1. Bromides and Iodides
  • Natural Presence: Bromides and iodides naturally occur in salt deposits and can be present in unrefined Sodium Chloride. While typically harmless at low levels, they are controlled in food-grade salt to meet specific industry standards.
