Applications

The main use of potassium chloride is in the manufacture of fertilizers. It finds use in medicine as an electrolyte replenisher, and to treat hypokalemia with its pharmaceutical preparation, a condition in which the level of potassium will be low in blood. Further it finds use as a flux agent in welding and metal casting. It is useful in water softener units, certain de-icing products and calibration of the radiation monitoring equipment. It finds use as a scotophor in dark-trace CRTs.
