Sulphuric Acid – Product Overview

Sulphuric Acid is a colourless, oily liquid with a specific gravity almost twice that of water, at 1.84 kg/l. At normal temperatures, Sulphuric Acid is an odourless solution. Sulphuric Acid has an affinity to water, resulting in the evolution of heat when diluted.

Sulphuric Acid is a highly corrosive and reactive chemical. Sulphuric acid can be irritating to the skin, eyes, and gastrointestinal tract. Please refer to the health and safety data sheet attached for further information.”

Manufacture of Product

Sulphuric acid is manufactured in 2 primary ways as a by-product in the pyro-metallurgical smelting and refining of sulphide ores or via the sulphur-burning process utilising the contact method.

Both processes convert Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) to Sulphur Trioxide (SO3) and then with the addition of water Sulphuric Acid (H2SO4) is formed. In the case of smelter acid, a vigorous cleaning process is carried out on the Sulphur Dioxide gas prior to conversion to Sulphur Trioxide.
