What is the use of ammonia?
From a chemical point of view, there are many types of gases. For example, the closest thing to life is air. The air contains various gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. But the purpose of each gas is very different. Today I will talk about ammonia and ammonia monitoring equipment. The gas removed from the anus in our body contains ammonia. So what is the use of ammonia? What is the use of ammonia to absorb? The following editor will give you a detailed introduction to these two issues of ammonia for your reference.
Characteristics of Ammonia
Ammonia, or "ammonia". A compound of nitrogen and hydrogen with the molecular formula NH₃. It is a colorless gas with a strong pungent odor. Easily soluble in water gas alarm. The aqueous solution is also called ammonia. Ammonia is lighter than air. This gas usually comes from the concrete admixture combustible gas detector used in building construction. And additives and brighteners in interior decoration materials.
The harm of ammonia to the human body
After long-term exposure to ammonia, some people may experience symptoms such as skin pigmentation or finger ulcers. After being exhaled into the lungs, ammonia gas easily enters the blood through the alveoli, binds to hemoglobin, and destroys the oxygen transport function. After inhaling a large amount of ammonia in a short period of time, tearing, sore throat, hoarseness, coughing, bloodshot sputum, chest tightness, dyspnea may occur, which may be accompanied by dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, etc. In severe cases, pulmonary edema may occur in adults. Respiratory Distress Syndrome. At the same time, respiratory tract irritation may occur.
Uses of ammonia
The main uses of ammonia include NH₃ for the production of ammonia, liquid ammonia, nitrogen fertilizer (urea, ammonium bicarbonate, etc.), HNO₃, ammonium salt, soda ash. Widely used in chemicals, light industry, fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, synthetic fibers, plastics, dyes, refrigerants, etc.
When it is detected that the concentration of ammonia in the environment reaches or exceeds the preset alarm value. The ammonia gas detector will emit sound, light and vibration alarm signals. Notify the staff in time to avoid causing the safety of life and property.
