Nitric Acid
Nitric Acid
HNO3
Nitric Acid (a.k.a. HNO3) is a strong acid of major importance. When heated or exposed to light, the acid decomposes to nitrogen dioxide, coloring it yellow. Vapors of nitrogen dioxide can absorb moisture, originating the name fuming acid. This acid is very corrosive to metals and very toxic to humans.

Capital Investment & Operating Cost of Nitric Acid Plants

Nitric Acid (a.k.a. HNO3) is a strong acid of major importance. When heated or exposed to light, the acid decomposes to nitrogen dioxide, coloring it yellow. Vapors of nitrogen dioxide can absorb moisture, originating the name fuming acid. This acid is very corrosive to metals and very toxic to humans.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Nitric Acid production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Nitric Acid production processes currently offered by Intratec. If none of the off-the-shelf reports listed below fits your needs, you can request a bespoke report tailored to your needs, for as low as USD 2,900!

Weak Nitric Acid from Ammonia (Medium Pressure Process)

This report analyzes the economics of Nitric Acid production from ammonia via a typical Medium Pressure process in the United States. In this process, ammonia is initially oxidized to nitric oxide. Then, nitric oxide is oxidized to form nitrogen dioxide, and absorbed (at the same pressure) by water producing 65 wt% Nitric Acid solution as the final product.

The cost analyses presented in the report NA E11A target a 250 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Weak Nitric Acid from Ammonia (High Pressure Process)

This report targets Weak Nitric Acid (65 wt%) production in the United States. Initially, ammonia is oxidized to nitric oxide. Then, nitric oxide is oxidized to form nitrogen dioxide, and absorbed at the same pressure by water producing 65 wt% Nitric Acid. The whole process examined in this study occurs at a high monopressure.

The cost analyses presented in the report NA E12A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Weak Nitric Acid from Ammonia (Dual Pressure Process)

In this report, it is approached the economics of Weak Nitric Acid (65 wt%) production from ammonia in a typical dual pressure process, assuming an industrial plant located in the United States. Initially, ammonia is oxidized to nitric oxide at medium pressure. Then, nitric oxide is oxidized to form nitrogen dioxide, and absorbed at high pressure by water producing nitric acid.

Details: 250 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report NA E13A target a 250 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Concentrated Nitric Acid Production from Ammonia

In this report, the economic analysis concerns Concentrated Nitric Acid (99 wt%) production via two integrated units located in the United States. Initially, a typical Medium Pressure process produces weak nitric acid by ammonia oxidation and nitric oxide absorption; then nitric acid is concentrated by extractive distillation using sulfuric acid as dehydrating agent.

The cost analyses presented in the report NA E21A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Concentrated Nitric Acid Production from Weak Nitric Acid

This study presents a feasibility analysis of Concentrated Nitric Acid (99 wt%) production from weak nitric acid (65 wt%) by extractive distillation using sulfuric acid as dehydrating agent. The economic analysis assumes a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 250 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2019   |   107 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report NA E22A target a 250 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.
