  Process description of DAP/APS/ NPK manufacture
  The process involves production of saturated Ammonium Phosphate and Ammonium Sulphate by reaction of merchant grade Phosphoric acid and Sulphuric acid as trimming agent for adjusting the final grade with Ammonia in pre-neutraliser or pipe reactor. This slurry having mole ratio (Ammonia: Phosphoric acid) 1.45 to1.50 and about 15 % water is brought in contact with the recycle material consisting of pulverized oversize, fines and dust generated being wetted particles together to form granules. Simultaneously further ammoniation up to required mole ratio for making DAP/APS is also carried out in the Ammoniator Granulator (AG). Addition of bentonite as filler is being carried out to help grade adjustment and potash in case of NPK production. The wet material leaving the AG is dried with hot air in a co-current rotary drier and screened to separate proper sized product from the oversize and fine material. The product is cooled with ambient air in a counter current rotary drum cooler and sent to Bagging Plant or Storage.
  Environment Details
  Substantial capital investment has been done for the Environment Protection in the form of equipment/technology and green belt development. All these will also have recurring expenditure for continued maintenance:
1 Equipment / Technology
