Fertilizer Production

Jordan Phosphate Mines Co. is considered one of the pioneering companies in producing high quality fertilizers at the world level. The Company’s Industrial Complex is one of the largest phosphate based fertilizers complexes in the Middle East.

Di-Ammonium Phosphate (DAP), as a fertilizer is produced at a capacity reaching to 3000 metric tons daily. It contains 18% Nitrogen, and 46% Phosphorus pentoxide, which is soluble granular, and leads to easy absorption by the plants and vegetations. It can be used by farms machinery, for all crops and trees, and for either rain-fed or irrigated lands.

As a Company, we emphasize, day after day our global commitment for food security through the quality of our products. We see food security as the number one mainstay of life.  We see its availability and safety as our obligation for a safer and better life.

Ammonia is imported from several Arab and foreign countries by ships. It is pumped from ships through a 14 inch pipe to two storage tanks, the storage capacity of the first is (30,000) tons, and the second is (10,000) tons. Temperature inside the tanks is kept around (-33) ºC at one atmospheric pressure, using special compressors. Ammonia is pumped to a reactor, where it reacts with concentrated phosphoric acid to produce slurry, which is pumped to a fertilizer granulator to be mixed with the fertilizer returns. Additional ammonia is added to the granulator to reach the required mixtures. Fertilizer is then moved to a dryer, which is a rotating machine that dries the fertilizer by hot gases produced by burning fuel oil, so its moisture content doesn’t exceed 1.5%. The fertilizer is conveyed to sieves to get the required size, and then cooled down in a machine similar to the dryer, and moved to the storage silos.
