The uses and applications of Nitric Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Nitric Acid are commercial grade/weak Nitric Acid (50 to 65 wt%); reagent grade (68 wt%); 86%; and fuming acid (95 to 98 wt%).

About Nitric Acid. Nitric Acid (a.k.a. HNO3) is a strong acid of major importance worldwide. 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.

Historically used in the production of explosives, after the Second World War Nitric Acid production grew rapidly with the expanding use of synthetic fertilizers, but with the increased popularity of urea in the 1990’s, production has leveled.

Weak Nitric Acid can be stored in stainless steels tanks, whereas strong acid materials of construction commonly used are aluminum, boro silicate glass, high silica stainless steels. Transportation regulations usually depend on concentration and on means of transport. Nitric acid may be shipped in either stainless steel or aluminum. Bulk Nitric Acid can be shipped by railcar, tank truck or portable tank. Nonbulk packaging includes drums. The transportation of nitric acid requires proper packaging, labeling and shipping documentation. For other than red fuming acid, a variety of smaller containers are permitted, all of which require various forms of individual packaging, depending on acid strength and mode of transportation. Packages are mostly glass or earthenware containers ranging in size from 0.5 to 2.5 l.

Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Nitric Acid are listed below.

  • Ammonia (oxidation process)
