Industrial sulfur products

Martin Resources manufactures and markets industrial sulfur products such as emulsified sulfur, 99% elemental sulfur pastille, industrial use ground sulfur and industrial grade ammonium sulfate. Emulsified sulfur is produced at our production facility in Texarkana, Texas. Emulsified sulfur is primarily used in the pulp and paper manufacturing processes. Elemental pastille sulfur is produced in Odessa, Texas and Seneca, Illinois and utilized primarily by the power supply industry. Industrial ground sulfur is produced in Odessa, Texas and used in a variety of dusting sulfur and wettable sulfur applications such as rubber manufacturing, fungicides, sugar and animal feeds. Our industrial ammonium sulfate products such as 40% AMS solution and Kosher approved food grade AMS are marketed throughout the US for water treatment, tanneries, and food processing.

Ammonium BiSulfite Solution (ABS)

Ammonium bisulfite (ABS) (65% Solution) is a transparent yellow or light green liquid possessing versatile reductive and sulfonating properties. ABS is used in a wide range of industrial applications, including:

  • Waste water treatment – Removes Chlorine from waste water
  • Reductive bleaching agent – It reduces carbonyl and alcohol groups, which function as colorants of substances. It is used in bleaching mechanical paper pulp, cotton, wool and kaolin clay.
  • Preservative (antioxidant) used in food and beverage processing industry
  • Reducing agent in chemical manufacturing
  • Alternative to sulfur dioxide in sterilization of equipment.
  • Cyanide destruction in precious metals mining – Gold mining tailings are treated with ABS where it reacts with the free cyanide to form non-toxic chemical compounds.
  • Oxygen scavenger in drilling solutions for the oil and gas drilling industry
Ammonium Thiosulfate Solution (ATS)

Ammonium Thiosulfate (ATS) solution is a clear liquid containing 12% Nitrogen and 26% Sulfur. ATS is compatible with Nitrogen solutions and NPK liquid blends, which are neutral or slightly acid in reaction. It is widely accepted for use in clear liquid blends, but is also well suited for use in suspensions. ATS is essentially noncorrosive and may be stored in mild steel, poly and aluminum vessels and plumbing.

AS-7-70% Emulsified (Flowable) Sulfur

AS-7, is a flowable aqueous suspension of emulsified sulfur (micro fine sulfur) that was developed for use in Kraft Paper Processing. It remains a stabilized, low viscosity slurry through a broad range of temperatures. These properties allow easy handling, storage and metering. Emulsifying and stabilizing agents used in the manufacture of AS-7 are compatible with the Kraft Paper process.
