Made of virgin high density polyethylene conforming to ASTM D1248 for polyolefin materials. Neutralization tanks are designed to receive, dilute, and neutralize corrosive and harmful chemical wastes before allowing such material to be discharged into the public sewers or the environment. Neutralization of corrosive, toxic, and flammable wastes is necessary to the environment and piping systems. Such wastes can cause physical damage to a building's piping or outside sewer systems and, if effluent is being discharged to the environment, severe damage can result to wildlife and water sources. Tanks are seamless with uniform wall thickness and are free of stresses. Can be used for service at 180°F in continuous service, or intermittent use of 212°F. Tanks are complete with cover and can be special ordered in sizes up to 2400 gallon. Limestone chips are being used in numerous applications to help neutralize chemical bearing wastes. It is recommended that the limestone chips be one to three inches in diameter size range and have a calcium carbonate content in excess of 90%. The following chart shows approximate limestone usage. In commercial and industrial laboratories the number of lab stations in the table should be divided by two. See chart for recommended limestone usage.
