Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Ammonium lauryl sulphate or ALS is a commonly used name for ammonium dodecyl sulphate. It is grouped as an alkyl sulphate and is also an anionic surfactant widely found in and body wash as a foaming agent. ALS has a pH slightly less than seven, making it mildly acidic.
Ammonium lauryl sulphate is made up of a long nonpolar hydrocarbon chain with a polar sulphate end group. The combination makes the material a surfactant. These two components permit this chemical compound to be soluble in both polar and nonpolar molecules.
Ammonium lauryl sulphate is a very high-foam surfactant that disrupts the surface tension of water in part by forming micelles around the highly polar water molecules at the surface-air interface. Just like many surfactants, it creates an excellent base for cleaners due to the way it disrupts hydrogen bonding in water. In aqueous solutions, lauryl sulphate anions and ammonium cations dissociate from each other.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate 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.
