2014 Devasthali Role of fatty amines in anticaking agent formulations for fertilizers
Though the final cost of tertiary amine formulation is less that of fatty amines, the performance of fatty amine formulation, especially primary fatty amine is proved to be the best. Fatty amine formulation aids the modification of crystal habit, reduces moisture ingress and migration of ions resulting to achieve good anticaking property. However best the formulation is, the application of anticaking agent efficiently at plant level would require a well-designed system to suit the industrial process. india had been able to subsidize fertilizers to a large extent but this did not give the necessary impetus to manufacturing companies to provide superior product. Hence, efficient anticaking agent formulations, especially those containing fatty amines show good demand.
