Diammonium Phosphate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Diammonium phosphate or DAP is a water-soluble ammonium phosphate salt. DAP can be used as a fertilizer. Diammonium phosphate (DAP) is the world’s most widely used phosphorus-based fertilizer. Ammonium phosphate fertilizers were first available in the 1960s, and DAP rapidly became the most popular in this class of products. It temporarily boosts the soil pH; however, over the long term, the treated ground becomes more acidic than before upon nitrification of the ammonium. It is incompatible with alkaline chemicals simply because its ammonium ion is more likely to convert to ammonia in a high-pH environment. The average pH of the solution is 7.5–8.
DAP is also used as a fire retardant too. It reduces the combustion temperature of the material, reduces maximum weight loss rates, and creates an increase in the manufacturing of residue or char. It is used as a yeast nutrient in winemaking and mead-making; as an additive in some brands of cigarettes purportedly as a nicotine enhancer; to prevent afterglow in matches, in purifying sugar; as a flux for soldering tin, copper, zinc and brass; and to control precipitation of alkali-soluble or acid-insoluble colloidal dyes on wool.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Diammonium Phosphate 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).
