Mixed fertilizers can be produced by chemically reacting different ingredients and utilizing the chemical reaction as the binding force; or simply by mechanically blending together straight fertilizers. Throughout the preferred pH range (5.8 to 6.2) for formation of monoammonium phosphate, pronounced twinning of the crystals occurs, the type formed being largely the penetration twin. In addition to calcium levels, potassium and phosphate levels should be monitored. FIRST-AID MEASURES Eyes In case of eye contact, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical attention if necessary. Figure 1 presents a simplified flow diagram of the process. A process for producing ammonium phosphates, comprising reacting ammonia with phosphoric acid in solution under conditions to maintain in said solution a hydrogen ion concentration between the limits of pH=6.8 and pH=7.6, forming thereby a saturated solution containing diammonium phosphate, and then adding phosphoric acid to said solution. The process The following paragraphs describe a process for diammonium phosphate production from phosphoric acid and ammonia via an ammoniation-granulation process using a pipe reactor. This invention relates to a process for the production of ammonium phosphate, and particularly diammonium phosphate. Diammonium phosphate When producing this salt from a coke-oven gas and phosphoric acid, I prefer to operate the saturator at a temperature somewhere between 400 C. and 600 C. and somewhat more advantageously between the limits of 450-500 C. The 45 solution which will be established in saturator 4 when operating continuously will contain diammonium phosphate and phosphoric acid in such proportions that the hydrogen ion concentration will be maintained between the limits of 6.8 to 7.6, 50 the preferred limits being between 7.2 and 7.4.

Inhalation Move casualty to fresh air and keep at rest. Most phosphate fertilizers are highly water soluble. Thus, it … The present invention relates to a process for the direct manufacture of crystalline urea phosphate. The obtained phosphoric acid is then used in the production of a series of liquid or solid fertilizers. As a consequence the mother liquor becomes more concentrated with respect to impurities, and it becomes increasingly difficult for pure crystals to form. 2.2 PROCESS DESCRIPTION Normal Superphosphates Normal superphosphates are prepared by reacting ground phosphate rock with 65 to 75 percent sulfuric acid. In another more recent patent, a partial solution of the problem is presented, whereby more or less crude monoammonium phosphate suitable for fertilizer use is produced by the neutralization of crude phosphoric with ammonia-containing gases such as coke-oven gas. Solid diammonium phosphate shows a dissociation pressure of ammonia as given by the following expression and equation: A concentrated phosphoric acid with above 90% by weight H 3 PO 4 can be used as starting reagent. Sulfuric acid is manufactured at the site using the well-known contact process. Down below is a list of some of the major use cases of ammonium phosphate: Ammonium phosphate is used as a leavening agent during the process of baking Total ammonium phosphate production in the U.S. in 1992 was estimated to be 7.7 million megagrams (8.5 million tons). Having now described several embodiments of my invention, it will be apparent that it is not so limited but is susceptible of various changes and modifications without departing from the spirit thereof; and I desire, therefore, that only such limitations be placed thereupon as may be indicated by the prior art or as are specifically set forth in the appended claims. A process for producing ammonium phosphates, comprising reacting by-product ammonia with phosphoric acid in solution under conditions to maintain in said solution a hydrogen ion concentration between the limits of pH=6.8 and pH=7.6, removing suspended solids from said solution, and then adding phosphoric acid to said solution. I have also noted that the crystalline habit of the crystals forming within this pH range changes from the needle type forming in a pH range of 5.6 to 5.8 to a pronounced prismatic type in a pH range of from 5.8 to 6.4.

MAP & DAP 1.5. 2.2 PROCESS DESCRIPTION Normal Superphosphates Normal superphosphates are prepared by reacting ground phosphate rock with 65 to 75 percent sulfuric acid. Table 1: Process alternatives for the production of phosphoric acid In the phosphoric acid process, the sulfuric acid reacts with the phosphate rock, forming phosphoric acid and calcium sulfate (gypsum). 1.1. These rocks are mixed in the blending plant to produce a … The scrubbed gases leaving saturator 4 through spray trap 14 may in some cases contain traces of ammonia, especially when diammonium phosphate is being produced in saturator 4. Referring again to Figure 1 of the drawing, a filter 20 is shown supplied with mother liquor by pipe 21, which connects with the saturator 4. A further advantage to be obtained with the filter shown is that when working within the pH range above mentioned, I find that the impurities present in the coke-oven gas selectively combine with the impurities in the phosphoric acid with the formation of a precipitate insoluble in the solution. There have been significant improvements in commercial manufacturing a method in the last 10 years to complement the fast growth of the use of ammonium phosphates in worldwide agriculture. It is a highly unstable compound with the formula (NH 4) 3 PO 4. & Terms of Use.

Because of its instability, it is elusive and of no commercial value. As described in my earlier filed application, of which this is a division, if I maintain the solution within the above range, I am able to obtain crystals which are well developed structurally, which settle rapidly from solution, and which are quite pure. A direct process for producing diammonium phosphate, comprising reacting ammonia as contained in by-product coke-oven gas with phosphoric acid dissolved in a solution of ammonium phosphate, and maintaining the hydrogen ion concentration of the solution during the reaction between the limits of pH=7.2 and pH=7.4, while maintaining the temperature between 450 and 500 C. 6. 11. The objections to such processes are that they are not suitable for the production of pure phosphates, nor are they as convenient and economical as the herein disclosed process. Fertilizer Manufacture Diammonium Phosphate Fertilizer. Diammonium Phosphate Mosaic Crop Nutrition CCA Commercial 2 5 NM CEU Fertilizers and Soil Amendments By regulating the quantity of heat supplied with the gas, it is possible to control 75 the evaporation of water from the saturator and thus prevent accumulation of mother liquor. By this means I am able to make pure monoammonium phosphate crystals substantially free of diammonium phosphate. A process for producing diammonium phosphate, comprising reacting ammonia with phosphoric acid in solution and maintaining the hydrogen ion concentration therein between the limits of pH=7.2 and pH=7.4. Another object is the provision of a process in which such a reaction is susceptible to accurate control or variation, to the end that either the mono- or diammonium phosphate may be produced. FEECO has extensive experience around phosphate materials, including: 1. The plan is to add three quantities (1g, 2g, and 3g) of copper (II) phosphate into machine lubricant and test it on metal surfaces. Anhydrous ammonia, along when it reacts with phosphoric acid, also results in the production of the ammonium phosphate. Such a precipitate is not gelatinous, as has already been observed in some disclosed processes, and, hence, is not difficult to remove from solution by filtration.

Excess mother liquor will then drain off and be conveyed by pipes 8 and 9 back to saturator 4. DAP, Diammonium Hydrogen Phosphate) is an important ammonium phosphate salt, widely used as a fertilizer all over the world. FIRST-AID MEASURES Eyes In case of eye contact, rinse with plenty of water and seek medical attention if necessary. Production. See the process flow diagram (Figure 4). the production of ammonium phosphates (monoammonium phosphate, or MAP, and diammonium phosphate, or DAP), nitrophos-phates, potash, and compound fertilizers. It will be clear from the preceding description that I have invented a process for the production of mono- and diammonium phosphate and particularly one in which these phosphates may be produced in one type of apparatus by suitable change of operating conditions. Monoammonium phosphate (MAP) is a widely used source of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N). Challanges of fertilizer production - Duration: 3:27. © 2004-2020 FreePatentsOnline.com. 4. If, however, it should be desired to free the gases of all ammonia, I prefer to scrub them with a further quantity of acid. A process for producing diammonium phosphate, comprising reacting ammonia as contained in by-product gases with phosphoric acid dissolved in a solution of ammonium phosphate, and maintaining the hydrogen ion concentration of the solution during the reaction between the limits of pH=7.2 and pH=7.4. The specific conditions necessary to be maintained in saturator 4 when producing a particular ammonium phosphate will now be described. As evidence for this statement, it is generally known that monoammonium phosphate, for example, will be formed in solution over a wide range of hydrogen ion concentrations, i. e., from about a pH of 3.0 to 6.5; however, only over a rather very definite range of acid concentration is it possible to produce crystals of this salt which can be readily and continuously removed from the saturator and in pure form. The process The following paragraphs describe a process for diammonium phosphate production from phosphoric acid and ammonia via an ammoniation-granulation process using a pipe reactor. Both triammonium salts evolve ammonia. Sulfuric acid (H 2 SO 4) is important in the production of fertilizers (e.g., ammonium sulfate (sulfate of ammonia), (NH 4) 2 SO 4, and superphosphate, Ca(H 2 PO 4) 2, which is formed when rock phosphate is treated with sulfuric acid). 2 production to solve the energy crisis. The temperature of the saturator solution should be maintained within the range of 400-60 0 C., and advantageously within the range of 45°-50, C., either by heating the incoming gas in the heater 2 or by supplying external heat to the saturator itself. NPK 1.3. The crystals of ammonium phosphate are removed from the saturator by the air lift 6, of conventional design, and deposited, together with the mother liquor, in drain box 7. In a process for producing ammonium phosphates from impure ammonia and phosphoric acid, the steps of maintaining the hydrogen ion concentration of ammonium phosphate solutions between the limits of pH=6.8 and pH=7.6 while removing impurities therefrom.
