  • Patent number: 3985744
    Abstract: Anhydrous sodium dichloroisocyanurate is obtained as a free flowing granular product of bulk density 0.84 to 0.94 g/cc by compacting, granulating and sizing sodium dichloroisocyanurate dihydrate to obtain a granular dihydrate product having at least 60% by weight of particles having a screen size of -10 +70 mesh (U.S. Standard) and then dehydrating said granular dihydrate product. The ability to produce anhydrous granular sodium dichloroisocyanurate of a bulk density 0.84 to 0.94 g/cc provides a means for controlling an important parameter in producing flowable non-segregating compositions, as for example, detergent compositions.
