Suspensions by Cold Mixing
The document explores the process of cold mixing as a method for producing fluid fertilizers. Cold mixing combines clear liquid base solutions with clay, urea-ammonium nitrate, potash, and other additives to create high-analysis suspensions. The document discusses the equipment and procedures involved in the cold mixing process, including plant setup, mixing tanks, agitation techniques, and storage considerations. It also examines various materials used in cold mixing, such as clear liquids (10-34-0, 11-37-0), ammonium polyphosphate, potash, and micronutrients. The advantages and challenges of cold mixing suspensions and potential developments in the field are discussed. The report concludes by emphasizing the growing popularity of suspension fertilizers and the need for cost-effective production methods like cold mixing.
