Industrial potassium nitrate is colorless transparent orthorhombic crystal or powder! Granules. The relative density is 2.1109, the melting point is 333°C, when heated to 400°C, it decomposes and releases oxygen, which turns into potassium nitrite, and continues to decompose by heating to form potassium oxide and nitrogen oxide. It is soluble in water but insoluble in ethanol. Soluble in liquid ammonia and glycerin.

Industrial potassium nitrate is the raw material for making black flames, etc.; it is used as a salt bath for quenching in mechanical heat treatment; it is used in the ceramic industry to make colored glazes; it is used as a glass clarifier to make automotive lamp glass, optical glass and picture tube glass bulbs, etc. Production of penicillin potassium salt, rifampin and other medicines. It is also used as a beneficiation agent. Edible potassium nitrate is used as a coloring agent and preservative for meat products.

Industrial potassium nitrate is an inorganic substance, commonly known as fire nitrate or soil nitrate, KNO3 refers to potassium nitrate. It is colorless transparent orthorhombic crystal or rhombohedral crystal or white powder, odorless, non-toxic, with salty and cool feeling. It absorbs little moisture in the air, is not easy to agglomerate, is easily soluble in water, soluble in liquid ammonia and glycerin, and insoluble in absolute ethanol and ether.

Industrial potassium nitrate is a strong oxidant, which can cause combustion and explosion in contact with organic matter. Therefore, industrial potassium nitrate should be stored in a cool and dry place, away from fire and heat sources. Do not store and transport together with reducing agents, acids, flammable (combustible) materials, and metal powders.
