Sulphuric Acid is considered to be the backbone of chemical industry and basic raw material and generally Acid means Sulphuric Acid. The elemental Sulphur fed and thus Sulphuric Acid is manufactured by using DCDA (Double conversion, Double absorption) system, which is the most modern method.
During the process, solid Sulphur is melted and that molten Sulphur is burnt in presence of excess dry air that ultimately passed through vanadium penta oxide catalyst in four stages. Sulphuric Acid is supplied in tanker loads and major consuming industries are pharmaceutical, soap, dye intermediates, industrial chemical, ammunition factory, fertilizers.
