Hydrochloric acid has a strong pungent odor and is a colorless liquid or gas that is nonflammable. It is used in many industries; in laboratories as a reagent, in metal work for things such as eclectroplating and cleaning, for removing scale from things such as boilers. It is also used in the manufacture of items such as fertilizer, dies and in some food product preparation. Hydrochloric acid is also used in the textile, rubber and photographic industries.
The worldwide production is approximately 20 million tonnes each year. Fun fact, history tells us that in the past rock salt was used to produce HCL and it was referred to as “spirits of salt”. Other common names were muriatic acid, acidum salis and even green vitriol. Some of these names are still used by Europeaan countries such as Germany and Poland.
