Process Refractometers Improve Production and Quality of Phosphoric Acid Production

Phosphoric Acid Production
Phosphoric acid is an important product used in industrial applications such as the manufacture of agricultural phosphate fertilizers, detergents, pesticides, metal coating, etc. Due to its non-toxic and mildly acidic nature, phosphoric acid is also used in other applications including food flavoring, soft drinks, pharmaceuticals, dental products, cosmetics, and skin care products.

Phosphoric acid is produced by mining the naturally occurring phosphate rock and processing it via a wet process or a thermal process. The concentration of the acids during the wet process can be measured inline with the process refractometers, such as those manufactured by K-Patents.

To learn more about where and how these refractometers are used in wet process phosphoric acid production, visit the PSI Controls web page.
