Calcium Nitrate 

 
Shivam Nitrate Pvt. Ltd. produces Calcium Nitrate Melt, Lumps, Crystalline, Powder. Melt is used by majority explosive manufacturers in India viz. Indian Oil Corporation Ltd.(IBP Division), Keltech Energies Ltd., Solar Industries India Ltd., Singreni Collieries Co. Ltd.,Gulf Oil Corporation and AMA industries, A min explosives etc since 20 years.We have been supplying calcium nitrate melt to above mentioned companies regularly. We have been supplying calcium Nitrate in the form of Lumps,Crystalline and powder grade.

 Application

  • Explosives :  Calcium Nitrate Melt is used as Oxidiser and as sensitizer.
  • Fertilizer :  Calcium Nitrate lumps is a new Nitrogenous and calcareous fertilizer with characterisics of high efficiently and quickly make-up Nitrogen, applied in green-house and large-area farmland.It improves the soil and guarantees fruits in gay colors and increase carbohydrate contents in fruits.This is used in cultivating Coffee, Bananas, Sugar Cane,Rice growing, Fruits, Ornamental plants and Vegetables. 
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used as water coolant ( added to water to reduce high temperature brine solution) in cooling Towers.
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used as raw material where there is a requirement for calcium content in the intermediate or final manufacturing process of Fine chemicals and Bulk Drugs Industries.
  • Calcium Nitratecrystal/powder is used by Cement admixture Companies as a Set Accelerator for Cement. Calcium Nitrate is used as anti Corrosive as well as Compressive strength of cement . 
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used in Surgical Glove manufacturing Industry as dipping coagulant.
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used as Corrosive inhibitor in diesel fuels.
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used in foaming steel-making slags, wherein calcium nitrate is added to the slag alone or together with carbon . It is preferred to use a ratio between calcium nitrate and carbon in the range from 4:1 to 2:1. For foaming of stainless steel slag, it is preferred to add first FeSi, Al or Mg before calcium nitrate and carbon is added or injected into the slag by an injection gas. This can be used also for slag foaming in electric arc furnaces and ladles. 
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used in Pyrotechnic Industry like in Match Industry. 
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used Oil Well Drilling as fluid additive. 
  • It is used as refrigerant and cement anti-freezer, phosphorizing agent in steel industry. 
  • Calcium Nitrate crystal/powder is used by Si Based Refractory Industry as catalyst .
