Vapor-liquid equilibria data are presented for hydrochloric acid solutions ranging in nominal HCl mol fraction from 0.110 to 0.225, saturated with CaClz, at nominal solution temperatures between 0 and -40C. Total pressures were measured by capacitance gauges, vapor compositions by direct vapor-phase sampling into a quadrupole mass filter and liquid compositions by electric conductivity. The addition of CaClz to hydrochloric acid breaks the azeotrope and generally increases the vapor pressures of HCl and water. Solubility and solution densities have also been measured. Solution compositions have not been completed to date limiting the interpretation of the results to some extent. These are presently being done. It is probable that the effect of CaClz on the formation of secondary smoke in a reduced smoke rocket plume has less an effect than NaCl.
