Soda Ash Dense

Dense soda ash is a white, odourless and uniform product, free from dirt and other foreign matter.

Physical and chemical properties
Soda ash has a tendency to absorb moisture from the atmosphere. The moist soda ash then starts absorbing atmospheric carbon dioxide. This phenomenon of absorption of moisture and carbon dioxide is known as weathering. After weathering, soda ash is likely to contain appreciable moisture and sodium bicarbonate, though its total alkali content does not change. Soda ash has a tendency to cake when it comes into contact with moisture and, consequently, becomes lumpy.
