The preparation of sodium lauryl ether sulfate five process steps, condensation of lauryl alcohol and ethylene oxide, sulfation of condensation product, neutralization, pressure filtration to remove the residue, and distillation of the filtrate to dealcohol.
- Put lauryl alcohol into the reaction kettle, and then put a certain proportion of potassium hydroxide into the dispensing tank. And then put it into the reaction kettle after being prepared into a 50% aqueous solution.
- Vacuumize, control the degree of vacuum at 13.3kpa. And gradually heat up to about 120℃ for dehydration.
- After the dehydration is completed, the air is replaced with nitrogen.
- After the air is exhausted, raise the temperature to 140-150℃.
- Start stirring and feed ethylene oxide at 3kpa.
- Then lower the kettle temperature gradually to about 5℃.
- Add sulfuric acid for acidification. After one hour, it was neutralized with sodium hydroxide and alcohol solution.
- After neutralization, the filter residue is removed by pressure filtration. And the filtrate is dealcoholized to obtain the finished product.
Compared to SLS, SLES chemical is a milder surfactant that is less irritating to the skin. It is only irritating to the skin if it is left on the skin for a longer period of time or used on higher concentrations.
