Ammonium chloride is an excellent salt with strong acid and weak base, which is widely used in the addition of non-protein nitrogen in ruminants and the supplement of anionic salts in dairy cows. At the same time, it is also widely used in feed industry as an anti-calculus agent for alkaline calculi in ruminants.
Recently, the market has exposed the bad practice of using industrial grade ammonium chloride and even agricultural grade ammonium chloride to disguise feed grade ammonium chloride . Hunan Jianghai, as a pioneer of high purity ammonium chloride, is deeply disturbed and is concerned about the ammonium chloride industry.
First of all, the production process of industrial grade ammonium chloride and feed grade ammonium chloride is different. Most industrial grade ammonium chloride uses supersaturated crystallization (that is, coupling alkali enterprises double cleaning on the basis of agricultural ammonium is suitable for large-scale production, mainly used in smelting, plywood and other industrial industries), feed grade ammonium chloride adopts recrystallization method. It is refined from the raw material of industrial or agricultural ammonium chloride with a purity of 99.5% and low impurity content.
In the industrial grade supersaturated crystallization mode, due to the large amount of crystallization, it is easy to inclusion of mother liquid impurities between crystal clusters, while the unsaturated crystallization is slow and low yield, but its crystal purity is relatively higher, and feed grade ammonium chloride also added a temperature control reaction process. The main function is to use special agents to remove heavy metal impurities in ammonium chloride , which avoid harm to animals and the residue and accumulation of heavy metals in animals. Corresponding to the index, the burning residue is only below 0.2 ,while industrial grade is 0.4.
Two grades of ammonium chloride add different anti-caking agents. Industrial grade ammonium chloride is generally added as an organic anti-caking agent widely used in industry, which is usually not edible and harmful to humans and animals.
The anti-caking agent used by our company for feed grade ammonium chloride fully takes into consideration the access standards of various regions, referring to the “Chinese Pharmacopoeia” and European standards, and passing through the anti-caking agent allowed by the country, but the cost is relatively higher.
Now the chaos in the feed grade ammonium chloride industry is gradually becoming more and more fierce, but Hunan Jianghai will not shake its faith because of difficulties, will not sacrifice the interests of customers because of small profits, will not give up exploration and innovation because of achievements. We are honored to participate in the improvement of the system of ammonium chloride industry, and will continue to forge ahead and never forget our original intention – choosing Jianghai is to choose trust, first-class products and intimate service.
