Ammonia concn in an ammonium nitrate melt substantially influences ammonium nitrate solidification, so that in an industrial process the concn of ammonia should be kept within strictly defined limits. Additives in the melt may slightly reduce irregularities in the solidification process. A simple solidification test can be used to check the behaviour of ammonium nitrate and its mixtures in an industrial context.
