Definitions for "Chloride"
A binary compound of chlorine with another element or radical; as, chloride of sodium (common salt).
The compound of chlorine and another element.
It is one of the major anions found in water and wastewater. The recommended maximum contaminant level is 250 mg/L, since the chloride ion imparts a salty taste to the water. If ions of Calcium and Magnesium are present, the chloride ion may not impart a salty taste until over 1000 mg/L. In addition to human and animal waste, sources of chloride can include natural geological formations, road salt storage and applications, oil / natural base drilling, and saltwater intrusions. High levels of chloride can attack and weaken metallic piping and fixtures and inhibit the growth of vegetation. Chloride ion is detected using a titrametric or potentiometric method.
An aggressive or corrosive component to be minimized in coolants. Chloride is present in all tap water and can find its way into an engines cooling system by top-off. When chloride levels become high (greater than 100 ppm) the coolant can become corrosive to metal components. Most prediluted coolants are made with distilled water that contains no chloride
ppm None 13.7 5.2-13.7
Cleaning chemical that may corrode stainless steel. Care must be taken to immediately rinse stainless steel with water if cleaners containing chloride are used. Cleaners with chloride must not be allowed to remain in contact with stainless steel components for long periods of time.
Chloride is an electrolyte found in the blood that plays a role in the function of the body's cell membranes. It is important in maintaining the body's normal acid/base balance. High or low values of chloride are interpreted in relation to the other levels of electrolytes.
