Potassium formate has minimal applications as a heat-transfer liquid

Posted by Coherent Market insights on May 19th, 2022

Potassium Formate is a chemical compound that is used in the production of potassium metal and in the oil and gas industry to produce a high-density, environmentally friendly brine that can be used as a heat transfer fluid. It is often used in aqueous solution (alone or in combination with cesium formate). Both a solid and a solution version of potassium formate are available. When applicable, American Elements follows ASTM testing standards and produces to several standard grades, including Mil Spec (military grade), ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural, and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP, and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia).

Potassium formate is a hygroscopic white solid that is derived from formic acid and belongs to the potassium salt family. It\'s a one-carbon molecule that acts as a buffer and is extremely soluble in water. Potassium formate is used as an intermediate in the formate potash process to create potassium.
