Technical Document

Brief Overview

Zinc sulphate monohydrate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula ZnSO4·H2O. Zinc sulphate occurs in three types of hydrate. Zinc sulphate is listed on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. The monohydrate exists as the gunningite mineral in nature.  

Manufacturing Process

The main raw material of zinc sulphate monohydrate production is sulphuric acid. Sulphuric acid is manufactured by oxidising sulphur dioxide gas to sulphur trioxide. Sulphur trioxide is then hydrated to get sulphuric acid. Zinc sulphate is prepared from reaction of sulphuric acid and zinc oxide.

Animal Feed Industry

Zinc sulfate monohydrate is a readily-accessible form of zinc supplementation and is commonly used as an additive for livestock feed. This helps prevent zinc deficiencies in animals, which can lead to issues such as impaired reproduction, hair loss, reduced feed intake and growth, and skin lesions.

Agriculture Industry

Zinc sulfate monohydrate is applied to soils that are deficient in zinc. Zinc is a crucial element for various plant functions, including enzyme activation, photosynthesis, and the synthesis of growth hormones. Correcting zinc deficiencies enhances overall plant growth and development. It is also often added to fertilizers to enrich them with zinc. Fertilizers containing zinc sulfate monohydrate ensure that plants receive an adequate supply of zinc, promoting healthy growth and preventing common deficiencies.
