Sulfuric acid is used as a key first step in the production of both MAP and DAP, after which it is mixed with phosphate rock to produce phosphoric acid. And since the phosphoric acid production process consumes energy, an on-site sulfuric acid plant – a net producer of energy – is a critical part of the fertilizer production process.
Phosphoric acid (H3PO4) can be produced by 3 main commercial methods: wet process, thermal process and dry kiln process. Wet process is by far the most common route and the acid can be used in phosphate fertilizers production (DAP, MAP, SPA).
Manufacture. Phosphoric acid is produced industrially by two general routes. In the wet process a phosphate-containing mineral such as calcium hydroxyapatite is treated with sulfuric acid. + + ↓ +Fluoroapatite is an alternative feedstock, in which case fluoride is removed as the insoluble compound Na 2 SiF 6.The phosphoric acid solution usually contains 23–33% P 2 O 5 (32–46% H 3 PO 4).
The acid doping level was quantified by weighing the membrane before and after doped in phosphoric acid. Firstly, a specified size of membrane strips was cut and weighed using the analytical balance. Then, the membrane strip was immersed in the PA for 80 min and 40 °C.
Mar 05, 2018· The production of phosphoric acid is done via two main ways; wet process and thermal process. The wet process involves the production of phosphoric acid from fluorapatite. It is known as phosphate rock and the chemical composition is 3Ca 3 (PO 4) 2.CaF 2.
We manufacture a range of solutions for the production of nitric acid, maleic anhydride, sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid, polyols, magnesium nitrate as well as HDPE and LLDPE. Through the use and development of various filter media, we have enabled longer campaigns to be obtained and greater material recovery to be achieved. Project Overview:
cess" or PH2. This process can yield a 43-46% P 2 O 5 acid and has a process ef - ficiency of over 98.5%. In cases where lower efficiencies are ac-ceptable, the removal of the dihydrate stage leads to a single-stage hemihydrate process known as PH1. This can yield acid 39-45% P 2 O 5, with a process efficiency of up to 95%. If lower strengths ...
The invention discloses a hemi-hydrate process wet process phosphoric acid production process which comprises the following steps of: 1) crushing commercial-grade phosphate ore to be 60% ground phosphate rock and screening by using a sieve of 100 meshes; 2) adding the crushed phosphate ore into phosphoric acid which is 50-55% in mass concentration, controlling the liquid-solid ratio to be 12:1 ...
The technology and economics of wet process phosphoric acid is changing rapidly. Production units are growing in size and efficiency. Producers are moving toward greater integration of operations and easier access to raw materials. New processes are appearing to produce, concen trate, and upgrade wet process phosphoric acid.
Purification of Wet Process Phosphoric Acid by a Solvent Extraction Process ... SRI's cost estimates show that the A&W solvent extraction technology for high purity phosphoric acid production has substantial cost advantage over the costs of producing high purity acid via the electric furnace thermal acid process.
Jul 01, 2020· Reports indicate that the Sunchon complex is designed to run two different processes for the production of phosphoric acid: a wet process and a dry process.  In a wet process, which is the most commonly used method globally, phosphoric acid is produced by adding sulfuric acid into pulverized phosphate-containing rock.

Process Refractometers Improve Production and Quality of Phosphoric Acid Production. Phosphoric acid is an important product used in industrial applications such as the manufacture of agricultural phosphate fertilizers, detergents, pesticides, metal coating, etc. Due to its non-toxic and mildly acidic nature, phosphoric acid is also used in other applications including food flavoring, soft ...
Full Article. Effect of Phosphoric Acid in the Pre-hydrolysis Process of Dissolving Pulp Production from Bamboo-willow. Jin-Chao Zhang, a Chao-Jun Wu, a,b, * and Dong-Mei Yu a Bamboo-willow is a type of fast-growing wood with a high hemicellulose content.
excess consumption of acid in phosphoric acid production • Low Fe 2O 3, Al 2O 3, and MgO contents (below ~5%) to avoid formation of intermediate products • Low Cl-content (<500 ppm) to prevent equipment corrosion. Ore grade in the phosphate mining industry is one of the primary criterion used to differentiate phosphate ores.
