Our clients appreciate these products for their ability to increase the phosphorus and potassium levels of the soil. These products provide accurate mixing owing to their high water solubility. It is packed in special packaging material in order to avoid any damage at the time of delivery.
Information on Mono Potassium Phosphate
Mono Potassium Phosphate is a derivative of Phosphoric Acid. Mono Potassium Phosphate is soluble in water. Mono Potassium Phosphate is a white crystalline powder with a melting point of 252oC. It should be stored in tightly closed containers in a Room Temperature.
Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Mono Potassium Phosphate
The major raw material to all the phosphates is Phosphoric Acid. Phosphoric Acid is manufactured from Rock Phosphate. Phosphate rock is fed to a series of reactors along with recycled phosphoric acid from the process. The phosphoric acid-fluoroapatite slurry is mixed with sulphuric acid which is added to the reactor series as a leaching agent. After completing the reaction series, the process stream is washed with evaporator condensate while being forced through a filter. The filter cake is composed primarily of gypsum (CaSO4 2H2O). The Phosphoric Acid is concentrated to 75-100% by a series of evaporators and then cooled.
Mono Potassium Phosphate is manufactured by taking a reaction between Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) and phosphoric acid (H3PO4). The resulting slurry of MKP is solidified in a granulator.
