Chlorine Supplier to Northern Illinois Weldstar Specialty Gases is one of the most trusted distributors of PurityPlus® Chlorine, the greenish-yellow, toxic, and corrosive gas with an extremely disagreeable odor that’s even so remarkably useful, to the Northern Illinois market. Chlorine (Cl₂) is prepared normally in giant “chlorine and caustic” plants using a saltwater solution to create Chlorine gas, hydrogen gas, and caustic soda (sodium hydroxide). Chlorine is used in synthesizing a number of organic and inorganic chemical intermediates, for example pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and refrigerants. Given that it’s a powerful oxidizer and can be prepared cost-efficiently, Chlorine also serves as a dependable disinfectant and sterilizer in water and wastewater treatment. Large commercial quantities of Chlorine are used to bleach textiles and paper. Cylinder quantities of high-purity Chlorine are employed in chemical synthesis research and pilot plant operations. Small quantities of Chlorine are used to prepare calibration gas standards for process and environmental monitoring.
