Phosphate fertilizers play a critical role in the world’s agriculture and grain production. There are several types of phosphate fertilizers, including MAP, DAP, NPK, SSP and GTSP. The phosphate-fertilizer industry uses different chemical processes to manufacture phosphoric and fluosilicic acids and different end products. Each step in these processes generate off-gases and particulate matter (PM), including:
- Gas Cooling
- Product storage/handling
Major contaminants for air pollution in the industry include fluorides (HF and SiF4), ammonia, NOx, SOx, ammonium phosphates and dust. The fertilizer industry is continually challenged to meet and exceed current and future standards.
Kimre is recognized as a world-leader in the control of gaseous emissions from phosphate-fertilizer production facilities. For more than 40 years, Kimre-technology has supplied gas-cleaning systems that have achieved the lowest emission levels in the industry. Kimre’s SXF™ (Semi-crossflow) Technology incorporates the unique characteristics of its KON-TANE® Tower Packing and B-GON® Mist Eliminator to provide stage-wise separation and removal of contaminant gases and particulate matter to meet any level of emission limits while recovering valuable products to return to process. While providing the lowest emission levels, Kimre technology also offers other significant advantages to other technologies, including:
- Less Susceptible to fouling
- Easy to Clean
- Able to be retro-fitted and modified to meet ever-changing emission standards
Kimre has over 100 installations world-wide and in every stage of the fertilizer manufacturing process, including:
- Rock Drying
- Fume Scrubbers
- Fluosilicic Acid (FSA) Scrubbers
- Vacuum scrubbers
- Ammonium phosphate, single and triple superphosphate scrubbers
