Ammonium chloride is an inorganic compound and a white crystalline salt that is highly miscible in water. Solutions of ammonium chloride are often mildly acidic. It is primarily utilised as fertiliser as well as a flavouring agent in different kinds of liquorice. It is used as a nitrogen source in fertilisers. It is the product that is obtained from the reaction of hydrochloric acid with ammonia.The mineralogical and natural structure of ammonium chloride is known as Sal ammoniac. Ammonium chloride is generally formed on burning coal dumps from the condensation of coal-derived gases. It can also be found around some types of volcanic vents.
Ammonium chloride was used in pyrotechnics back in the eighteenth century but later was superseded by safer and less hygroscopic chemicals. Its purpose was to offer a chlorine donor to enhance the green and blue colours from copper ions in the flame.Ammonium chloride is also utilised as a flux while producing metals to be galvanized, tin-coated, or soldered. It is used as a flux by reacting with the metal oxides at the surface of workpieces to form a volatile metal chloride and, thus, cleaning the surfaces.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Ammonium Chloride production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
