Ammonia is used as the main active raw material and additive in many fields, from household cleaning agents to explosives, from the pharmaceutical industry to cooling systems, especially in the production of chemical fertilizers and various chemicals.
The main raw materials of ammonia production are natural gas, water and atmospheric air. The electrical energy required for production is Eti Gübre A.Ş. An average of 8 MW is met from the steam turbine with a total installed power of 32 MW, which is within the body of Mazıdağı Phosphate Facilities.
Ammonia with chemical formula NH3; Hydrogen (H2) and nitrogen (N2) gases are formed by the following chemical reaction.
The produced gas is cooled and liquefied in ammonia, cooling water and liquid ammonia heat exchangers and sent to 2 spherical storage tanks, each with a capacity of 3400 tons. Ammonia is stored in spherical tanks at 6 bar pressure and 10 degrees temperature for use in fertilizer production. In addition, a pool was built around the tanks and a water spray system was installed against ammonia leaks that may occur.
