- Ammonium Nitrate -

Ammonium Nitrate (NH4NO3) is a chemical compound of nitrogen (N), hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2), produced by neutralizing nitric acid (HNO3) with ammonia (NH3).

It is mainly used in agriculture as a high-nitrogen fertilizer and as a component of explosive mixtures in mining, quarrying, and civil construction. Ammonium nitrate service comes with some challenges as corrosion, toxicity and flammability.

Vinco ball valves are designed to operate in severe ammonium nitrate service to ensure safely handling, high levels of chemical compatibility and fire safe design incorporated.
