TiCl4 Furnaces

These furnaces are used for the production of Titanium Dioxide which has a wide range of applications including paint, sunscreen and food colouring, it is estimated that titanium dioxide is used in two thirds of all pigments. These furnaces are used in the Chloride process which converts ilmenite or other titanium sources to Titanium tetrachloride via reaction with elemental chlorine, which is then purified by distillation, and reacted with oxygen at high temperature to regenerate chlorine and produce the Titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide pigment can also be produced from higher titanium content feedstocks such as upgraded slag, rutile and leucoxene via a chloride acid process.
