Ammonia is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen with the formula NH3. It is normally encountered as a gas with a characteristic pungent odour.

Ammonia contributes significantly to the nutritional needs of terrestrial organisms by serving as a precursor to foodstuffs and fertilizers. Ammonia, either directly or indirectly, is also a building block for the synthesis of many pharmaceuticals.

Although in wide use, ammonia is both caustic and hazardous. Approximately 83% of ammonia is used as fertilizers. Other applications are commercial cleaning products and Refrigerant equipment.

An Ammonia (NH3) detector can be used to measure the concentration in the air. There are many gas detectors on the market, Airmet can help you selecting the correct model for you application. Give us a call or use the product selector below.
