Anhydrous Ammonia, A Triple Play is coming in
Odds are 1 play in 486 games.
The Triple Play of Ammonia is coming with Small Scale Ammonia Plants
from Exactrix® Global Systems and Proton Ventures.
At your farm site and locally built ammonia available within 7.5
miles of your farm.
Better quality service and a better quality product applied at 1%
It is called Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® Flywheel Energy and built
for 36,000 acre management zones in Nebraska, Colorado, Texas, and
A triple play happens every now an then. It happens about 486 games
Only one unassisted Triple Play has every happened in the World
Series in 1920

Exactrix owners are about to witness a triple play on their farms.
Improved soil and crop production costs and available to your farm
the day it is built.
A much better energy source for your engines and heating needs,
plus an improved payback for the small scale plants selling Green
Play Ammonia back to the energy market.

Bezo’s Earth Fund. Our rivers and streams will no longer suffer.
Climate change can be reversed.
A true Triple Play is coming…..and it will be assisted. We want to
help producers clean up the enviroment and improve land values
using Exactrix TAPPS and TAPPKTS with Zinc.

Reciprocating Vs Centrifugal Ammonia Plants.
Back to the future.
Reciprocating Ammonia Plants make more sense by going local with
wind powered NH3.
Here are the Energy Numbers, 42,134 BTU Reciprocating, Multiple
Train Compressors, Vs 40,246 BTU Centrifugal Single Train
Compressors per ton produced.
For sure it was big mistake in 1962 to go to
Centrifugal Plant production of NH3. There is no throttling back
the centrifugal plants, Low idle is 70% of full throttle of the
entire Single Train Compressor…other problems are lack of storage
with Centrifugal Single Train Compressors.
Centrifugal Plants created tremendous environmental problems with an
oversupply of NH3 with no storage.
What is the Logical Path Forward at Dodge City, KS?
By 1987 a lack
of oversight as the Bureau of Mines and TVA National Fertilizer
Development Center was closed by the Reagan Administration. Too much
grain was the so called reason.
By 1990 The
Showdown had begun, the wild, wild west of fertilizer started.
The single train centrifugal compressors were developed by
Kellogg, Brown and Root in 1962. The NH3
manufacturing pattern of the Centrifugal Single Train
showed up in Dodge City, KS. The KBR NH3 technology was an eventual
It is not
necessary to say KBR caused the problem. It was American and
Canadian Greed of the Fertilizer Industry by formulating a system
using Mega Plants over the gas field without overall ample storage.
They did not increase storage when they recognized the problem. The
Fertilizer Industry came back strong by raising the rate of NH3 and
we are now in a disaster in water quality and air quality and for
sure a contribution to Climate CO2 emission along with Methane CH4
and Nitrous Oxide, N2O.
The KBR Single
Train was cheaper per ton in Mega Scale plants and it had no
full range throttle….while reciprocating plants could shut
down compressor lines or multiple trains to meet the demand.
So who drove us
into this environmental mess?…the Natural Gas energy people might be
a good place to take a look.
Too much of good
thing….with lots of Natural Gas created an environmental disaster 40
Ammonia Plants without lots of NH3 storage do not work well…..and
furthermore Reciprocating Ammonia Plant designs requires storage to
supply NH3 on time.
The Key is
Storage of NH3 on the farm….and
the fertilizer industry tried to steer around the problem with
second and third tier products, Urea, Uran and Uan. And now in the
era of the Oligarchs the problem has become critical to be able to
store NH3. The emission from second and third tier products are
beyond belief compared to Green Play Ammonia, Exactrix TAPPS and
TAPPKTS buried in narrow no-tillage bands deep in the soil at seven
to nine inches.
Take a look at
technology in reverse.
We are headed back to reciprocating compressor designs. What is the
penalty? Looks like about 4% difference in BTU’s between the two
approaches….and as the producers gave all that extra NH3 to the
environment for 4% difference in cost to build NH3. Thanks to KBR
compressors, Ammonia became too cheap and allowed over application
without storage. The applications of NH3 had to be made six months
ahead without protection from Nitrosomonas and
If you want to
rifle in on the problem it boils down to the Hedge Fund Managers and
Fertilizer Industry managers operating without the influence and
controls of the TVA.

another reason why TAPPS and TAPPKTS formulators work well in Acid
soils. The metals like Aluminum can not tie up the placed P in
TAPPS and TAPPKTS.

soils where the metal calcium interferes with phosphate and in 6.0
to 5.5 pH low pH soils where by the metal aluminum interferes
with phosphate availability.
