Sulfuric acid tank is generally produced and used in accordance with 98% concentration ratio. For sulfuric acid, one of the dangerous acid types, there are 2 different production up to 75% concentrate and 2 separate production for sulfuric acid storage between 75% and 100% concentrate.

PVC + Vinylester Sulfuric Acid Tank

PVC acid tanks can be used by coating with vinylester resin due to its brittle structure. Tanks which have a longer life than polyethylene tanks and which have many alternative options as equipment can be produced in desired sizes.
PVC acid tanks can be produced in 4 stages.

1. Step
After the tank is made cylindrical in pvc in desired dimensions, the outlet rakor, free flange pipes and level indicator pipes are installed and sanding process is started to erode the surface gloss.

2. Step
The surface of the tank is sanded and made ready for vinylester resin and glass fiber coating. This ensures the best adhesion of vinylester resin and fibers to the tank.

Polyester Acid Tanks

3. Step
The surface of the tank is covered with vinylester resin and fiber and its brittle structure is removed. Coating thickness varies with tank volume.

Polythene Silo Tank

4. Step
After the product coating is done, the surface of the product is cleaned again and the paint section is switched on. After the product is painted, the necessary equipment is connected and transferred to the shipment department. Some equipment can be shipped disassembled for shipping security.

Polyethylene Sulfuric Acid Tanks

Polyethylene sulfuric acid tanks are produced by thickening 100%. The average service life for sulfuric acid can range from 5 to 10 years. Product outlet rakors are made of PE material and acid resistance is the same as that of the tank.

Acid Tank Considerations2019-03-13T13:11:39+03:00

The most important thing to know about the acid tank is the acid concentration ratio and the stock temperature. Polythene acid tanks resist to all acid concentrate ratios. Stock temperature must not exceed 55 degrees Celsius, for all acid types.
For polyester acid tanks, the acid type, concentration ratio and stock temperature value are very important. Because resin resist to different acid types in different concentration ratios and temperature values . As the concentration ratio decreases, the stock temperature resistance increases. In addition, thermal protection can be provided with isocam application for polyester acid tanks.
Never use the products for any other acid than the specified acid type and values during the order.
All acid tanks should be tested primarily with water before filling acid. Water testing is recommended against problems during shipment.
All product groups must be placed on a flat concrete ground.

What is Sulfuric Acid?

Sulfuric acid (alternative spelling sulphuric acid), also known as vitriol, is a mineral acid composed of the elements sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen, with molecular formula H2 It is a colorless, odorless, and syrupy liquid that is soluble in water and is synthesized in reactions that are highly exothermic.
Its corrosiveness can be mainly ascribed to its strong acidic nature, and, if at a high concentration, its dehydrating and oxidizing properties. It is also hygroscopic, readily absorbing water vapor from the air. Upon contact, sulfuric acid can cause severe chemical burns and even secondary thermal burns; it is very dangerous even at moderate concentrations.
Sulfuric acid is a very important commodity chemical, and a nation’s sulfuric acid production is a good indicator of its industrial strength. It is widely produced with different methods, such as contact process, wet sulfuric acid process, lead chamber process and some other methods.
Sulfuric acid is also a key substance in the chemical industry. It is most commonly used in fertilizer manufacture, but is also important in mineral processing, oil refining, wastewater processing, and chemical synthesis. It has a wide range of end applications including in domestic acidic drain cleaners, as an electrolyte in lead-acid batteries, and in various cleaning agents.

Industrial Hazards

The main occupational risks posed by this acid are skin contact leading to and the inhalation of aerosols. Exposure to aerosols at high concentrations leads to immediate and severe irritation of the eyes, respiratory tract and mucous membranes: this ceases rapidly after exposure, although there is a risk of subsequent pulmonary edema if tissue damage has been more severe. At lower concentrations, the most commonly reported symptom of chronic exposure to sulfuric acid aerosols is erosion of the teeth, found in virtually all studies: indications of possible chronic damage to the respiratory tract are inconclusive as of 1997. Repeated occupational exposure to sulfuric acid mists may increase the chance of lung cancer by up to 64 percent. In the United States, the permissible exposure limit(PEL) for sulfuric acid is fixed at 1 mg/m3: limits in other countries are similar. There have been reports of sulfuric acid ingestion leading to vitamin B12 deficiency with subacute combined degeneration. The spinal cord is most often affected in such cases, but the optic nerves may show demyelination, loss of axons and gliosis.
