Physical properties

Ammonia is a flame-retardant, colourless, poisonous, intensely pungent smelling, hygroscopic gas. The explosion limits in mixture with air are very narrow: Approx. 15-28 vol. % at an ignition temperature of 924K. The gas cannot generally continue to burn on its own unless other fuel gas or oxygen is added.

Ammonia is a gas liquefied under pressure. The pressure is dependent on the ambient temperature. Ammonia dissolves very easily in water: The solubility strongly depends on the water temperature. The lower the water temperature, the higher the solubility of ammonia. In the presence of moisture, ammonia attacks copper and copper-containing alloys (e.g., brass and bronze).

Ammonia is an inorganic chemical compound of hydrogen and nitrogen. It is produced through synthesis from the elements according to the Haber-Bosch process (N2 + 3H2 = 2NH3).2 + 3H2 = 2NH3).

SICO®-TEST A leak detector for NH3-carrying pipes

You can obtain SICO®-TEST A exclusively from Schick GmbH + Co KG. When SICO® -TEST A encounters ammonia, white mist develops. This means even the smallest leaks can be detected.
