Feed Grade Copper Sulphate

Production of Feed Grade Copper Sulphate is the prior activity of NEKK Industrial Group.

The technologies used by NEKK OJSC allow to produce copper (II) sulphate with physical and chemical characteristics corresponding to the international standards in regards of chemical purity and physical parameters of the product intended to be used as an ingredient of premixes and mixed fodders or as feed additive for use in animal breeding;

 

There are 4 main types of grading of Copper Sulphate for animal breeding:
< 0.45 mm (min 85%, max 15% 0.45-0.8 mm, 0% >0.8 mm)
0.2 – 0.8 mm (min 85%, max 15% < 0.2/< 0.8 mm, 0% < 1 mm)
< 0.8 mm (min 92%, max 20% < 0.1 mm, min 15% 0.45-0.8 mm, max 8% > 0.8 mm, 0% > 1 mm)
0.1 – 0.63 mm (min 85%, max 15% < 0.1/< 0.63 mm, 0% < 1 mm)

 

Copper Sulphate is processed with anti-caking agent – silicon dioxide (E551) in the ratio of 1%.
To store in sheltered storage facilities.
Shelf life 2 years.
