A New Approach to Cooling and Prilling during Fertilizer Manufacture



Developing different methods for obtaining the most products at economical rates from the available agricultural area has been necessary to satisfy the food needs of the fast- increasing population of the world by 17-th century. Accordingly, among the various alternative methods, chemical fertilizers have played a big part in the food revolution, and the fertilizer quality affects the new race of the environment toward market needs.

In our work, we tried to improve the fertilizer quality, during the prilling process, by referring to an already available downstream system; the temperature – phase relationship of the prilled fertilizers was investigated, and physicochemical properties were calculated for improving fertilizer- storage conditions. We worked on ammonium nitrate crystals in this study.
