Sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) is a salt of composition Na6[(PO3)6]. Sodium hexametaphosphate of commerce is typically a mixture of metaphosphates (empirical formula: NaPO3), of which the hexamer is one, and is usually the compound referred to by this name. Such a mixture is more correctly termed sodium polymetaphosphate. They are white solids that dissolve in water.
SHMP is used as a sequestrant and has applications within a wide variety of industries, including as a food additive in which it is used under the E number E452i. Sodium carbonate is sometimes added to SHMP to raise the pH to 8.0–8.6, which produces a number of SHMP products used for water softening and detergents.
A significant use for sodium hexametaphosphate is as a deflocculant in the production of clay-based ceramic particles It is also used as a dispersing agent to break down clay and other soil types for soil texture assessment.
It is used as an active ingredient in toothpaste as an anti-staining and tartar prevention ingredient.
The energy drink NOS contains sodium hexametaphosphate.
As a food additive, SHMP is used as an emulsifier. Artificial maple syrup, canned milk, cheese powders and dips, imitation cheese, whipped topping, packaged egg whites, roast beef, fish fillets, fruit jelly, frozen desserts, salad dressing, herring, breakfast cereal, ice cream, beer, and bottled drinks, among other foods, can contain SHMP.
Application: For industrial use, such as oil field, paper-making, textile, dyeing, petrochemical industry, tanning industry, metallurgical industry, and building material industry, it is mainly used as a water softening agent in solution for printing, dyeing, and boiler; Diffusant in papermaking; slow corrodent, floating agent, dispersing medium, high-temperature agglomerate, detergent, and soil analytical chemistry reagent. For food-grade, it is mainly used as an additive agent, pH adjusting agent and fermentation agent, and nourishment.
Sodium Hexametaphosphate Uses in Food
*Water holding capacity. It can be used in meat products, fish sausage, ham, and so on to improve water retention, increase adhesion and prevent fat oxidation.
*Anticorrosion performance. The aqueous solution of sodium hexametaphosphate can be sprayed on the cured meat to improve corrosion resistance.
*Improve the taste and color of food. It can be used in soy sauce to prevent discoloration, as well as increase viscosity, shorten the fermentation period, adjust the taste. For ice cream, it can improve the capacity of expansion, increase the volume, enhance the emulsification to prevent the destruction of paste, as well as improve the taste and color.
*Other uses as a food additive. For fruit drinks and cool drinks, it can improve the juice yield, increase viscosity and inhibit the decomposition of vitamin C. For beans, canned fruits, and vegetables, it can stabilize natural pigments and protect food color. Meanwhile, it can also be used in dairy products and beverages to prevent gel deposition, in beer to clarify liquor, and prevent turbidity.
Sodium Hexametaphosphate Uses in Industries
*Water treatment. It can be used as a water softener for boiler water and industrial water, such as, dye production water, titanium dioxide production water, printing and dyeing water, washing color film copy water, chemical water, pharmaceutical, reagent production water, as well as industrial circulation cooling water treatment agent. It can also be used as a scale inhibitor in resin electrodialysis, reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and other water treatment industries.
*In the coated paper production industry, it can be used as a slurry diffusing agent to increase penetration.
* Used in washing vessels and chemical fibers to remove iron ions from the pulp.
*Anti-rust for drilling pipes in the petroleum industry and control of the viscosity of mud during oil drilling.
*It can also be used as corrosion inhibitor, flotation agent, dispersant, high-temperature binder, dyeing auxiliary, treatment of metal treatment, rust inhibitor, detergent builder, cement hardening accelerator.
