Phosphate Processing Aids

Innovative chemistries, advanced monitoring and control systems, and expert support for your phosphate processing challenges.

Meet your challenges head on with our proven solutions.

Ninety percent of all phosphate production is destined for the manufacturing of fertilizers. As the global population surges, phosphate processors are tasked with increasing output to preserve land fertility. Unfortunately, phosphate rock is a complex raw material. Phosphate deposits are incredibly diverse, and the ore can differ greatly from one deposit to another, requiring modifications to processing methods in order to produce a quality product. Extracting and processing phosphate also introduces issues ranging from scaling and corrosion of process equipment to wear and tear of equipment assets — all of which can negatively affect production and plant profitability.

In addition to these operational challenges, phosphate processors must deal with water scarcity, environmental regulations and investor demands for higher profitability. Staying productive and competitive takes innovative phosphate processing chemicals, but it also requires onsite consultation from industry experts​.

Solenis brings together a unique combination of expertise, innovative products and analytical tools. Our field professionals will work closely with your phosphate processing personnel to audit your operating conditions, identify opportunities to increase process efficiency and recommend the right chemicals and equipment to improve the entire production cycle, whether you’re trying to prevent scale formation during the production of phosphoric acid or reduce foam during the oxidation process.
