Fertilizers are inorganic bulk chemicals used for agricultural purposes as they provide valuable nutrients for all types of crops. The fertilizer market benefits from steady growth of the global population but has to carefully balance production output with local demand, ensure the right product mix, and deliver a superior quality product. The solid materials are produced in aqueous solution via reaction of ammonia with various acids, mainly nitric, sulfuric, and phosphoric acid. The corrosive and highly reactive nature of the substances involved pose special challeng-es to all plant equipment. SICK offers various dedicated solutions for process and CEM applications in this industry.
