Ammonium nitrate production
Maximizing energy efficiency is vital to success. This calls for very tight temperature approaches. Alfa Laval heat transfer technologies help ammonium nitrate producers around the world reduce energy costs and boost productivity.
Alfa Laval has broad expertise, equipment and services to help ammonium nitrate producers increase plant efficiency and productivity.
Producing ammonium nitrate through the neutralization of nitric acid and ammonia gas yields high quantities of steam. Alfa Laval’s flexible and reliable technologies for heat recovery gives plant owners greater freedom to decide where to use different heating or cooling sources in the process because our equipment makes it possible to design duties with a temperature approach as low as 2°C (3.5°F).
For evaporation processes, Alfa Laval can supply a full range of condensors and evaporators to meet the requirements of virtually any operating temperature as well as turnkey evaporation systems for recovering valuable ammonium nitrate product from wastewater streams.
