EDTMP, also known as ethylenediamine tetra(methylene phosphonic acid), is a phosphonic acid. It is classified as a nitrogenous organic polyphosphoric acid. It has chelating and anti-corrosion properties.
EDTMP is usually delivered as its sodium salt, which presents good solubility in water. It is widely used in water treatment as an anti-scaling or anti-corrosion agent. The corrosion inhibition of EDTMP is nearly 3–5 times superior to inorganic polyphosphate. It has good thermal tolerance and chemical stability. It displays excellent scale inhibition ability below a temperature of 200 °C. It functions by chelating with many metal ions. The anti-cancer drug Samarium (153Sm) lexidronam is also extracted from EDTMP.
This colourless liquid with an ammonia-like odour is a strongly basic amine in nature. It is most commonly used as a building block in chemical synthesis. EDTMP can be used as a corrosion inhibitor in circulating cool water system and boiler water.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of EDTMP 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.
