Anhydrous Ammonia (NH3) is commonly used as a coolant in large industrial refrigeration systems. While ammonia refrigeration has long been a standard in the food / beverage industry, it is also now found in pharmaceuticals production, in air-conditioning equipment for some public buildings and in electric power generation plants. Ammonia is a toxic gas, though, and the proper safety monitoring procedures and equipment must be in place at all times to avoid serious accidental injury or death…
Ammonia refrigeration is considered cost efficient, and has been credited with keeping the price of food at affordable levels in the U.S. It also plays a role in the floral industry, as well as in various types of cold storage warehouses and in ice production. Ammonia industry experts say its use in refrigeration systems is environmentally friendly, and it does not destroy ozone or contribute to the greenhouse effect linked to global warming.
A major problem in the process industry is the corrosion of metals in pipes, valves and other parts of the equipment constructions. This write up indicates acceptable combinations of more or less aggressive fluids and commonly used materials like ammonia.
What is Ammonia
Ammonia (NH 3) is one of the most commonly produced industrial chemicals. It is used in industry and commerce, and also exists naturally in humans and in the environment. Ammonia is essential for many biological processes and serves as a precursor for amino acid and nucleotide synthesis. In the environment, ammonia is part of the nitrogen cycle and is produced in soil from bacterial processes. Ammonia is also produced naturally from decomposition of organic matter, including plants, animals and animal wastes
Some chemical/physical properties of ammonia are:
