Sodium dichromate Uses

 Sodium dichromate (CAS NO.10588-01-9) is used as the starting material for producing the solutions of chromium salts employed in chrome leather tanning and in chrome mordant dyeing of wool cloth. Pigments, such as yellow lead chromate, are manufactured from sodium dichromate , as also green chromium oxides for ceramic pigments.

Sodium dichromate Production

 Sodium dichromate (CAS NO.10588-01-9) is manufactured from chromite, a chromium iron oxide containing approximately 50% chromic oxide (Cr2O3) with iron oxide (FeO), alumina (Al2O3), silica (SiO2), and magnesium oxide (MgO). In the process (Fig. 1), the ore is ground and mixed with ground limestone and soda ash, and roasted at approximately 1200 °C in an oxidizing atmosphere. The sintered mass is crushed and leached with hot water to separate the soluble sodium chromate. The solution is treated with sulfuric acid to convert the sodium chromate to sodium dichromate plus sodium sulfate. Some of the sodium sulfate crystallizes in the anhydrous state from the hot solution during acidification as well as in the evaporators during concentration of the dichromate solution. From the evaporator, the hot, saturated dichromate solution is fed to the crystallizer, and then to the centrifuge and dryer.
