Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA), it's applications

Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA) is an organic compound with the formula (C3Cl3N3O3). It is used as an industrial disinfectant, bleaching agent and a reagent in organic synthesis. This white crystalline powder, which has a strong "chlorine odour," is sometimes sold in tablet or granule form for domestic and industrial use. Salts of Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA) are known as trichloroisocyanurates.The compound is a disinfectant, algicide and bactericide mainly for swimming pools and dyestuffs, and is also used as a bleaching agent in the textile industry. It is widely used in civil sanitation for pools and spas, preventing and curing diseases in animal husbandry and fisheries, fruit and vegetable preservation, wastewater treatment, as an algicide for recycled water in industry and air conditioning, in anti shrink treatment for woolens, for treating seeds and in organic chemical synthesis.
Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA) as used in swimming pools is easier to handle than chlorine. It dissolves slowly in water, but as it reacts, cyanuric acid concentration in the pool will build-up. At high cyanuric acid concentrations, normal chlorine levels can be rendered ineffective, requiring either dilution by draining and refilling the pool or by adding abnormally high doses of chlorine to overcome this effect.
What is Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA)? The Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA) burning in shipping containers at Port Metro Vancouver, causing evacuations to the east of downtown Vancouver, is “a moderate skin irritant, a moderate respiratory irritant and moderated eye irritant all rolled into one,” according to the President of BC Hazmat. It is toxic by ingestion, it will kill if you drink it. But all are moderate, which means it’s going to be a low amount of chemical that you’re going to be exposed to. Here’s what you need to know about Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA): It is a white, sandy powder with a chlorine odor. Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA) is used mainly to treat water, and is often used in swimming pools or as a bleaching agent for textiles.The chemical that is burning is used as a disinfectant for water and other bleaching agents. When it burns, it is going to be releasing chlorine gas.Trichloroisocyanuric acid(TCCA) can cause a fire when it comes into contact with combustible material, but there is little risk of an explosion.
