Water Solutions & Specialty Chemicals (WSSC)

Chemtrade’s WSSC business segment operates an extensive North American plant network, producing both traditional industrial chemicals and customized solutions for our customers. The Water Solutions segment consists primarily of inorganic salts, used as coagulants by municipal and industrial customers to treat water and wastewater. Additionally, the Water Solutions team produces a group of products used by poultry growers, as litter amendments, to control ammonia volatilization and improve bird health and productivity.

Along with coagulants and poultry litter amendments, WSSC produces Specialty Chemicals used in a wide range of industries including the paint (ink, pigment, etc.), oil & gas, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food & beverage, and tantalum refining industries.

Information on Chemtrade’s NSF/ANSI/CAN (Standard) 60 Certified Drinking Water Treatment Chemicals can be found on NSF International’s Website. NSF International is a leading third-party product safety certification service.

Sodium Nitrite – Industrial/Municipal

Sodium Nitrite – Industrial/Municipal

Sodium Nitrite, chemical formula NaNO2, is a pale straw-colored material that is highly soluble in water. Sodium Nitrite is used in many industrial applications including the manufacturing of diazo dyes, and other organic compounds used in the manufacture of organic pigments for the paint, dye and printing ink industries. In metal processing, it is used in phosphatizing and detinning applications. As a molten salt bath, it is used in heat treating of metal parts in the automotive and aircraft industries and as a high temperature heat-transfer medium. It is also used in the manufacture of synthetic rubbers and rubber chemicals. Due to its anti-corrosion properties, Sodium Nitrite solution is also used as a heat transfer fluid in Thermal Energy Storage units for large air-conditioning or process cooling applications.

Sodium Nitrite Technical Solution / GenClear N is a sodium nitrite/nitrate solution with a relatively high concentration of sodium nitrate. This high nitrate content allows GenClear N to be used to control odours and corrosion caused by hydrogen sulphide (H2S) in wastewater systems. It also has applications as a low temperature thermal fluid in large industrial chiller and stratified thermal storage systems. GenClear N controls H2S throughout a system from relatively few feed points by providing a food source which is consumed in a preferred metabolic pathway by bacteria over the reduction of sulphur, hence eliminating the formation of H2S.

Chemtrade produces a variety of Sodium Nitrite products, available as a dry product or solution. Dry product is available as a High Purity grade in granular or flake form, and as Super Free-Flowing Technical Grade in granular form. We offer a technical and 40% solution.
