Sodium Cyanide briquettes (98% ± 1%) are primarily used by the mining industry. The briquettes are white and resemble charcoal briquettes in form. Concentrated cyanide is toxic and the briquettes will release hydrogen cyanide gas if they come in contact with acids or low pH water. Solid forms of cyanide can be transported over longer distances due to the higher concentration of the product.
Convenience in a Package
Sodium cyanide is available from Cyanco in briquette form. The product is packaged in hopper cars, ISO containers (Solid to Liquid Systems – SLS), one metric ton bag/boxes and one metric ton composite packaging. The ISO containers are designed so that the cyanide can be dissolved at the customer site into their storage tank. This returnable form of packaging means no disposal of bags and boxes, minimal handling and sets the highest safety and environmental standards.
