Plant visit to Malay-Sino Chemical Industries Sdn Bhd, located at Jalan Lahad, Ipoh, Perak Darul Ridzuan is the second time for me. For the first time, I have joined the cheme carnival 08 plant visit organized by ICHEME student chapter UTP. However, for this time, it is organized by my lecturer Dr T. Murugasen for Spearation Process Course.

ABOUT THE PLANT

Malay Sino Chemicals offer a complete range of high quality chlor alkali. These are available at competitive prices and packaging. Based on few simple chemical equations, Malay Sino manages to handle a complex and complicated process plant that produced the desired products. Generally, the function of the plant is to produce sodium hydroxide or caustic soda (NaOH). This is their main products. Raw material such as sodium chloride (NaCl) is used as the main feed. But, from the main operation we will get other side products that are useful. So, the Malay Sino did not waste them and extend their operation to process the side products and gain more products for marketing.

RAW MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS

(1) Industrial salt (NaCl) + dimeneralised water -> Caustic Soda (NaOH)
(2) Hydrogen gas (H2) + Chlorine gas (Cl2) -> Hydrochloric Acid (HCl)
(3) Chlorine gas (Cl2) + Caustic Soda (NaOH) -> Sodium Hypochloride (NaOCl)
