Lithium Fluoride Solvent In The Electrolytic Aluminum Industry

Shanghai TaiYang Technology Co.,Ltd | Updated: Oct 24, 2017

Lithium fluoride is an alkali metal halide that is hardly soluble in water at room temperature. Used for nuclear industry, enamel industry, optical glass manufacturing, desiccant, flux and so on. It can be lithium carbonate or lithium hydroxide and hydrofluoric acid in the lead or platinum in the crystal in the system.

Lithium fluoride is a flux in the electrolytic aluminum industry to increase the efficiency of current, thereby accelerating aluminum production and reducing production costs. Its transmittance to ultraviolet light is the highest of all substances, so it is used as a transparent window for ultraviolet light in optical materials. Lithium fluoride monocrystals can be used to produce special optical instruments.

In the ceramic industry, used to reduce the kiln temperature and improve the thermal shock resistance, abrasion and acid corrosion. With other fluorides, chlorides and borates together for metal welding flux. Is the basic component of the electrolytic electrolyte. In the high-temperature battery in the molten state as the electrolyte component. In the proliferation of the reactor as a carrier. A large number of fluxes and fluxes for aluminum and magnesium alloys are also used as additives in the electrolytic aluminum industry to improve the efficiency of electricity; used as a neutron shielding material in the atomic energy industry, as a solvent in a molten salt reactor; Transparent window for UV (transmittance 77-88%).

Operation Precautions

Closed operation, partial exhaust. To prevent dust from being released into the air in the shop floor. Operators must be specially trained to strictly observe the operating procedures. It is recommended that the operator wear a self-priming filter dust mask, wear chemical safety glasses, wear toxics, and wear rubber gloves. Avoid dust. Avoid contact with oxidants and acids. Equipped with a leak emergency treatment equipment. Empty containers may be harmful residues.

Storage Precautions

Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Away from fire, heat. To prevent direct sunlight. Packaging sealed. Should be with the oxidants, acids, edible chemicals stored separately, avoid mixed storage. The storage area should be equipped with suitable materials to contain spills.

Leakage emergency treatment

Emergency treatment: isolation of contaminated areas, restricted access. Recommended emergency personnel wearing dust masks, wearing protective clothing. Do not touch the spill directly.

Small leaks: avoid dust, carefully sweep, transfer to a safe place.

A large number of leaks: collected or transported to the disposal of waste disposal sites.
