BHS Marketing is a global producer of Soda Ash Briquettes. Our manufacturing site is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Strategically positioned next to the Soda Ash mines in Wyoming.
When newly lined pots are first placed into operation, the electrolyte (a molten electrolytic bath consisting of cryolite plus excessive aluminum fluoride)is rapidly absorbed into the lining and insolation of the pot, with a marked preferential absorption of a high sodium containing portion.
This absorption reduces the sodium fluoride/ aluminum fluoride ratio below that which is desired.
To compensate for this, soda ash is added as a supplemental sodium source.
