A number of chemical and physical parameters are specified for fertilizers and are analyzed in the Sable Chemicals laboratory for the purposes of quality assuring the ammonium nitrate product before it gets to the customer. These parameters include, for example, nitrogen content, moisture level, stabilizer content, particle size as well as the colour. The laboratory analyses the critical parameters and relays the analyses results to the process operators who in return use the results thereof to control plant parameters in order to produce a product that meets the customers’ expectations.
The Sable Chemicals ammonium nitrate contains anticaking and stabilizing additives. The anticaking additive is applied to the surface of fertilizer particles to improve the quality parameters, such as moisture pick-up, caking tendency and flowability. The stabilizing additive is added to ammonium nitrate fertilizer to improve stability against deterioration due to fluctuations in temperature during storage and transport.
