Ammonia and Fertilizer

Nitrogen processing is critical for the mass production of ammonia and fertilizer, necessary to help feed our growing world population and meet the needs for industrial and institutional applications. We help nitrogen producers minimise water risk, maximise performance and optimise safety, reliability and profitability to help ensure the livelihood of future generations.

The Importance of Water in Ammonia Production

Ammonia facilities generate 4 to 5 times as much steam as the product they produce. Poor quality steam will cause problems with turbines, process catalysts, or other equipment. The cooling water system also plays an integral role in surface condenser and heat exchanger performance. Scale on heat transfer surfaces negatively impacts energy efficiency, reducing capacity, and bottom-line profitability.
