Potassium chloride’s uses: agrochemical, dairy, oil & gas, water treatment and more
Plant growth is often limited by the availability of potassium and the majority of this compound produced is used for making fertiliser (called potash).
Potassium chloride is also used as a supplement in animal feed to increase potassium levels, as well as to boost milk production. It’s also used to manufacture potassium hydroxide and potassium metal.
In natural gas and petroleum operations, potassium chloride can be used as a completion fluid. It can also be used in glassmaking to reduce the melting temperature of a mixture. In water softening processes, potassium chloride can be a substitute for sodium chloride, boosting potassium intake, reducing sodium levels and discharge of sodium into the environment.
Potassium chloride is also on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines, commonly used to treat low blood potassium levels. In food, it is combined with sodium chloride to create a low sodium table salt, and is even used in pet-friendly de-icing products.
