Industrial Low Density Ammonium Nitrate (LDAN)
ArrMaz currently offers two categories of products in our GALORYL® product line specially formulated for the industrial ammonium nitrate (also known as low density ammonium nitrate or LDAN) industry – porosity control agents and anti-caking coatings. Although ArrMaz has a standard product offering for this market we are able and welcome the opportunity to customize product offerings for specific applications.
Ammonium nitrate destined for explosives end use (often termed industrial grade) has specific quality parameters that must be met. Porosity is critical for good oil absorption but should not weaken the prill. ArrMaz’s porosity control agents cover a broad range of applications and have been developed for specific applications such as spinning bucket technology to reduce foam generated during the production process. Our anti-caking agents have been developed for use on porous ammonium nitrate such that neither the “active” nor the “carrier” components can be absorbed into the prill and cause it to soften.
ArrMaz’s expertise in global markets as well as in explosives development means that we are well equipped to actively work with our customers to custom design products that meet their unique needs.
