Copper sulfate is a hydrated chemical compound whose number of water molecules is varied and can range from 0 to 7 molecules. What was known as blue vitriol in the past, actually refers to copper sulfate. Due to the number of water molecules in the structure of this material, a specific color is created for each molecule.

Guide to buying copper sulfate
Important points to remember when buying copper sulfate; This material is different in terms of hydrated structure. This feature makes its properties different. To buy and even export copper sulfate, you need to get the chemical analysis sheet from the manufacturer and make sure that you have chosen the right product for your purposes.
The quality of copper sulfate is defined based on its color and granularity and the number of impurities. Copper sulfate with a purity of more than 98%, with a normal color, has a better quality. Its waterless form is white and gray and its water form is blue. If you see other characteristics in the material, it indicates its low quality or the presence of impurities.
Physical and chemical characteristics of copper sulfate
The physical and chemical characteristics and properties of copper sulfate are different based on the number of water molecules in its structure. For example, its anhydrous form is soluble in ethanol; But its pentahydrate structure dissolves in methanol. Also, the melting point of the structure of 5-aqueous copper sulfate is 110 degrees Celsius, at which temperature the material decomposes; But the anhydrous structure of this material decomposes at less than 560 degrees Celsius.
Production methods of copper sulfate
On an industrial scale, copper sulfate is obtained by purifying copper with hot and concentrated sulfuric acid. In this method, the purity of sulfate obtained is about 98% and the amount of impurities is very small. Usually, in the production of copper sulfate, fine crystal grains and medium and large crystals are obtained.

Packaging and Maintenance of copper sulfate
Copper sulfate packages include 25 kg bags. Bulk shipping is mainly done by 1000 kg jumbo bags. These bags have strong straps and handles and can be easily loaded and moved.
Maintenance, loading and delivery
Bags containing copper sulfate should be stored away from sources of moisture and in a dry and cool place with full ventilation. It is better to continuously ventilate the warehouse so that all the particles created can be moved outside. Loading and transporting bags is also done with modern storage and loading equipment to ensure complete safety.
