Calcium Chloride - Very Pure Food Grade 77% Dihydrate Flake

Calcium Chloride is the salt formed when Calcium and 2 Chlorine molecules combine. It's used widely in the food production industry to improve stability and increase food firmness. Calcium Chloride is also used in cheese making and brewing.


Calcium Chloride Properties

Calcium Chloride exists as a white solid at room temperature. Its melts at 176oC and boils at 1935oC (anhydrous). Anhydrous Calcium Chloride is hygroscopic by nature which means it attracts moisture from the air to form a hydrated compound. Dihydrate Calcium Chloride is 77% Calcium Chloride so is still hygroscopic by nature, however to a lesser extent than anhydrous Calcium Chloride. It dissolves in water well; this process is exothermic and produces heat. When molten, it conducts electrcity and when solid does not conduct heat well. The molecular formula for Calcium Chloride Dihydrate is CaCl2.H2O.


Applications for Calcium Chloride

Food Production
Calcium Chloride is used widely used in the food production industry. It's properties allow it to increase stabilty of food during production and help firm up food. Calcium Chloride is used in cheese making to help balance the levels of Calium and protein in the cheese before production. Calcium Chloride is also used in the brewing process. It is used to correct mineral deficiencies in brewing water.

Dessicant
Calcium Chloride is used in drying tubes to remove moisture from the surrounding air. The solid can be added to a solution to extract the water within it.

Marine Aquariums
Calcium Chloride is used to provide a vital source of calcium in marine aqauriums. The solid is added and dissolves, increasing the natural calcium levels in the water, essential for mollusks and cnidarians.

De-icing
Calcium Chloride is often used to lower the frezzing point of water and prevent icy road conditions. It is more effective at lowering the frezzing temperature of water than sodium chloride.

Water Treatment
Calcium Chloride is used to increase the hardness of the water in swimming pools which helps to reduce the ware to the concrete walls.

Concrete
Calcium Chloride can be added to a concrete mix to speed up the setting time.

Brewing Beer
Calcium Chloride is sometimes added to the brewing water to increase hardness and correct mineral deficiencies.
