Although ammonia is commonly used as a fertilizer in the agricultural industry, it is also used as a refrigerant gas or as a means of purifying water. Ammonia is also widely used to help manufacture different materials including plastic, pesticides, fabrics, and dye. While in a gaseous state, ammonia is easily compressed to form a colorless liquid. To transport ammonia for industrial use, high pressure is required to create a liquid, which allows this substance to shipped in steel cylinders.

Ammonia, for many applications, must be heated. While being transported, the substance is kept at -30°F. Before it is put into agricultural trucks, the liquid must be heated to +40°F.

Heating ammonia is a critical part of ensuring its effective use within the agricultural sector. Because there are two growing seasons, there is only a short window of time to distribute ammonia adequately. Several challenges are associated with heating ammonia. These problems include low temperatures, which cause water to condense. Water must be continuously removed and monitored. Ammonia vaporizers help simplify this process. When ammonia is vaporized, it must be quickly returned to storage so it can be recompressed.
