Ammonium Chloride Production Cost Report

Ammonium chloride is a salt of ammonia, majorly associated with healthcare, metal, food, chemical, and cosmetics industries. It is used in the preparation of medications, specifically for animals, that prevent stones formed in animals like sheep, cattle, goats, etc.

Furthermore, it is used as a nitrogen supply in fertilizers and dry cells as an electrolyte. It also finds use as a constituent of galvanizing, tinning, and soldering fluxes to get rid of oxide coatings from metals, enhancing the adhesion of the solders. In addition, it is a key element found in several proprietary cold medicines and cough remedies due to its efficacy as an expectorant. Similarly, it is used as a flavouring agent in liquorice, as an acidifier, and in food additives – in bread making as a yeast nutrient.

It is also used to bond plywood in glue, in Leclanche cells in aqueous solutions, in cooling baths to create low temperatures, etc.  It is also found in self-care products like body wash and cleanser, shampoo, facial cleanser, hair color and bleach, conditioner, hand dishwashing detergent, and in bath oils and salts.

The market for ammonium chloride is strongly driven by its demand as a raw material and component in food, medicines, chemical, and cosmetics products. Its application as a chemical component in medications increases its demand in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. Moreover, its applications for the production of chemicals and cosmetics, including personal care products and cleansers, propel its demand in the market. Similarly, its usage in metal processing and coating operations drives its demand in the metal industry.

Industrial ammonium chloride procurement is dependent on various factors related to its market dynamics. Factors including the market prices of ammonium chloride, along with its supply, distribution, and demand, influence its procurement across borders. Hence, the variations in its demand as a component in chemical, cosmetics, healthcare products, and metal processing operations, along with the stability in its supply and shifts in its prices, directly impact its procurement.

Raw Material for Ammonium Chloride

According to the ammonium chloride manufacturing plant project report, the key raw material for ammonium chloride production includes ammonia-hydrochloric acid; carbon dioxide-ammonia.

Manufacturing Process of Ammonium Chloride

The extensive ammonium chloride production cost report consists of the major industrial manufacturing processes:

  • From Ammonia and Hydrogen Chloride: Ammonium chloride is produced by the chemical reaction between ammonia and hydrogen chloride.
     
  • By the Solvay Process: The manufacturing process of ammonium chloride is initiated by the chemical reaction between carbon dioxide and ammonia in brine solution. The reaction results in the production of ammonium chloride at the end.

Ammonium chloride with the chemical formula (NH4Cl), also called sal ammoniac, is sodium carbonate's by-product. It is the salt of ammonia and hydrogen chloride. It is the end-product obtained following the ammonia-soda process that is used for making sodium carbonate.

It is also produced by the ammonium sulfate and sodium chloride solutions reaction. The inorganic chloride has ammonium as the counterion and functions like a ferroptosis inhibitor. It is usually made on burning coal dumps because of condensation of coal-derived gases and is present around certain kinds of volcanic vents.

In its pure form, it appears to be a crystalline white salt that has diuretic and expectorant effects. It is very soluble in water and slightly acidic. Its molecular weight is 53.491 g/mol, and its density is 1.53 g/cm³. Its boiling and melting points are 520 °C and 338 °C, respectively.
