Acid neutralization tank service
Neutralization Tanks are generally located in facilities with chemical laboratories, such as educational facilities and hospitals. Tanks range in size from small units which can be placed under a cabinet, to industrial 3,000 gallon tanks. The tanks are designed to accept influent acid discharges from laboratory sinks or processes. The tanks typically contain limestone pieces that work to chemically neutralize and dilute the acidic lab discharge, which ultimately flows through the tank to sanitary sewer system. Problems often occur when inappropriate waste materials such as organic salts, oils, metal solutions and other compounds are flushed to the system.
Allied technicians are experienced in routine servicing, cleaning, and complete restoration of neutralization tank systems. Allied recommends that all neutralization tank systems be placed in a scheduled maintenance program, and that limestone be replaced every 2-3 years.
