We make (1) Potassium Nitrate & (2) Potassium Nitrite

1. Potassium Nitrate is used in the manufacture of various types of Glass, Explosive-Blasting powder, Slurry, Dynamics, Matches, Fertilizers, Heat Treatment & Heat transfer salts and Leather processing Industries. Major uses of potassium nitrate are in fertilizers, rocket propellants and fireworks. It is one of the constituents of gunpowder. When used as a food additive in the European Union, the compound is referred to as E252.

Potassium Nitrate BP

KNO3 -- 101.1 -- 7757-79-1

Potassium nitrate contains not less than 99.0 per cent and not more than the equivalent of 101.0 per cent of KNO3, calculated with reference to the dried substance.

A white, crystalline powder or colourless crystals, freely soluble in water, very soluble in boiling water, practically insoluble in alcohol.

A. It gives the reaction of nitrates.
B. Solution S (see Tests) gives the reactions of potassium.

Solution S
Dissolve 10.0 g in carbon dioxide-free water prepared from distilled water and dilute to 100 ml with the same solvent.
Appearance of solution
Solution S is clear and colourless.
Acidity or alkalinity
To 10 ml of solution S add 0.05 ml of bromothymol blue solution. Not more than 0.5 ml of 0.01 M hydrochloric acid or 0.01 M sodium hydroxide is required to change the colour of the indicator.
Reducible substances
To 10 ml of solution S, add 0.5 ml of dilute sulphuric acid and 2 ml of zinc iodide  and starch solution. The solution does not become blue within 2 min.
If intended for ophthalmic use, it complies with the test for chlorides. Dissolve 2.5 g in water and dilute to 15 ml with the same solvent. The solution complies with the limit test for chlorides (20 ppm).
Dilute 10 ml of solution S to 15 ml with distilled water. The solution complies with the limit test for sulphates (150 ppm).
1 ml of solution S complies with the limit test (A) for ammonium (100 ppm). If intended for ophthalmic use, not more than 50 ppm of ammonium.
Dilute 10 ml of solution S to 15 ml with distilled water. The solution complies with the limit test for calcium (100 ppm). If intended for ophthalmic use, not more than 50 ppm of calcium.
Dilute 5 ml of solution S to 10 ml with water. The solution complies with the limit test for iron (20 ppm). If intended for ophthalmic use, not more than 10 ppm of iron.
Not more than 0.1 per cent of Na, determined by atomic emission spectrometry.
Heavy metals
12 ml of solution S complies with limit test A for heavy metals (10 ppm).
Loss on drying
Not more than 0.5 per cent determined on 1.000 g by drying in an oven at 100C to 105C.

Potassium Nitrate
KNO3 101.10
Potassium nitrate.
Potassium nitrate [7757-79-1].

Potassium Nitrate contains not less than 99.0 percent and not more than 100.5 percent of KNO3.

Identification A solution of it responds to the tests for Potassium and for Nitrate.
Chloride A 500-mg portion of it shows no more chloride than corresponds to 0.21 mL of 0.020 N hydrochloric acid (0.03%).
Sulfate Dissolve 100 mg of Potassium Nitrate in 10 mL of water, add 15 mL of 6 N hydrochloric acid, and evaporate to dryness on a steam bath. To the residue so obtained add 7 mL of 6 N hydrochloric acid, and evaporate to dryness on a steam bath. Dissolve the residue so obtained in about 35 mL of water and, if necessary, neutralize with hydrochloric acid using litmus paper indicator. Filter, if necessary, to obtain a clear test solution. This test solution shows no more sulfate than corresponds to 0.10 mL of 0.020 N sulfuric acid (0.1%).
Arsenic: 3 ppm.

Iron: not more than 0.001%.
Limit of sodium the limit is 0.1%.
Limit of nitrite To pass the test.
