Acid Neutralization Tanks
These tanks have years of proven suitability in handling tough effluents. Our line of polyethylene and polypropylene neutralization tanks are designed to withstand the heat of neutralization and the corrosive attack of acids, alkalies, toxins or other types of chemical wastes.
Function ChemTainer neutralization tanks are designed to facilitate the dilution and neutralization of harmful wastes that may be discharged from laboratories, industrial processes or other polluting sources. These tanks are also useful in diluting polluted effluent destined for chemical treatment plants or municipal water treatment facilities by reducing the burden placed on these plants.
5 to 2000 gallons
|Operation The neutralization
medium can be lump limestone or marble chips, 1"-3" diameter, with a high
calcium carbonate equivalent content in excess of 85%. Water added to the tank helps
facilitate dilution. In operation, the acids percolate up through the limestone and are
chemical neutralized into salts, water and carbon dioxide. CAUTION: There are many
variables affecting neutralization and dilution of chemicals discharged through a system.
Professional assistance should be employed in analyzing the effluent, recommending
appropriate equipment and necessary maintenance services.
Construction ChemTainer neutralization tanks are cylindrical and have bolted down and gasketed covers. All hardware for bolting is stainless steel, gaskets are neoprene. Tanks include inlets, outlets and vents as specified.
NOTE: Neutralization medium not included.
