Free ammonia - max. 0,2 %;
Insolubles - max. 10ppm;
Formaldehyde - max. 5ppm;
pH - max. 10;
Water - rest to 100 % (to be demineralised water).
Crystallisation point - Approx. 0oC;
Density at 20oC - Approx. 1,11kg/litre.Suppliers will provide a complete chemical analysis of the proposed Urea solution that will be provided. Should any of the chemical constituents / physical properties fall outside the above specification, this will be clearly stated.
Quantity requirements are estimated to be approximately 5 000 Tonnes per year. It should be noted that this is an estimation only and may be subject to change based on parameters that are outside the control of AES, therefore suppliers are invited to quote based on the four scenarios listed below.
