Industrial Ammonium Nitrate Production
Ammonium nitrate is a chemical compound used in fertilizer (high-density ammonium nitrate or HDAN) and as an explosive in the mining, quarrying and civil construction industries (industrial ammonium nitrate also known as low density ammonium nitrate or LDAN). LDAN is used as a solid oxidizer in industrial explosives such as ammonium nitrate / fuel oil (ANFO), which accounts for a majority of the explosives used in North America.
