Bio-Minerale manufactures MDCP from the basic elements of phosphoric acid and lime. A ‘Program Logic Controller’ (PLC) controls the process and keeps an accurate record of the amount of raw materials used in each lot.

To ensure repeatability, the PLC ensures that manufacturing continuously takes place within preconceived parametres such as temperature etc.

Each lot is tested by our in-house laboratory, and based on the results 3-4 lots are picked out for mixing, so that the mixed lot obtained in the end has the required characteristics. Samples are taken from each bag in the mixed lot, and the representative sample is then analysed again.

Each bag (50kg or ‘bulk bag’) is given a unique lot number, and the results of any lot can be obtained at any time. A quarterly quality report is available.
