Abstract : This process is based upon experimental work carried out at Jackson Laboratory,and upon production at Semi-Works and Blue Products Area over a period of several months. This process supersedes that part of the Tentative Dye Works Process dated April 12, 1943 for the Manufacture of Fluorine, which relates to electrolyte manufacture. Anhydrous hydrofluoric acid (HF) is mixed with potassium acid fluoride (KHF2) in such proportions that the resulting solution contains 43 to 44.5% HF. This material, which is liquid above 70 deg C, is used as the electrolyte in cells manufacturing gaseous fluorine (F2). p2
