Nitroglycerine, C3H5N3O9 is prepared by treating glycerine with a mixture of nitric acid and sulfuric acids.
Nitroglycerine is manufactured by nitration of natural or synthetic glycerine. Next comes the neutralization stage resulting in waste acid and a small amount of nitroglycerine and nitroglycol going to waste acid treatment.
Vaisala K-PATENTS® process refractometer is used to ensure a safe operation by continuously monitoring the nitroglycerine and nitroglycol concentration in the waste.
