US Magnesium is committed to producing saleable by-products from the production of magnesium and to that end, offers a number of chemicals for sale.
Chlorine is supplied in tank cars for primarily the water treatment industry, to ensure that the water Americans drink is free of bacteria and viruses.
Calcium Chloride and Magnesium Chloride liquid are used for dust control and ice control. Calcium Chloride is an additive to concrete in the winter that makes it possible for construction projects to continue even when the temperature drops below freezing.
Sodium Chloride (NaCl) or salt, is harvested from US Magnesium’s holding ponds for ice control, for use in water softeners, and other industrial applications.
Ferrous Chloride (FeCl2) and Ferric Chloride (FeCl3) liquid iron salts US Magnesium is one of the largest producers of iron chlorides in the western US for use in drinking and waste water treatment. In drinking water, iron chlorides are used to remove color, to co-precipitate heavy metals like arsenic, and to remove total organic carbon. In waste water treatment, iron chlorides are used to remove phosphorous, heavy metals, and hydrogen sulfide and to enhance solids and biological oxygen demand removal. Iron chloride treatment at many waste water plants enable municipalities to meet EPA discharge permits without capital investment as demand on the facilities grows.
