What is AMS?

Ammonium Sulfate (AMS)

  • Ammonium sulfate (AMS) is an inorganic sulfate salt obtained by reacting one-part sulfuric acid with two parts of ammonia.

  • Ammonium sulfate is a white odorless
    non-flammable, non-explosive, granular solid that dissolves in water.

  • AMS is widely used as a crop nutrient fertilizer that provides both nitrogen and sulfur needed for plant proteins.

  • In recent years, AMS has gained additional uses in industrial applications including municipal drinking water treatment products, as a solids precipitation agent in municipal sewerage treatment plants, herbicide adjuvants, fire retardants, animal feed and animal feed fermentation products, tanning agent for hides, food additives, cleaning products, and construction materials.
