Hydrochloric acid Chemical Resistance Information
Many chemicals can attack, degrade and cause swelling in plastic tanks. Bushmans chemical storage tanks are suitable to store Hydrochloric acid, under certain conditions. It is important to note that chemical resistance evaluations are undertaken by our raw material suppliers without internal pressure and external mechanical stress.
BUSHMANS chemical properties are evaluated and tested to the international standard service temperature of 23C. If the liquid within the tank is expected to exceed this service temperature, you must inform your BUSHMANS consultant to allow us to design a specific solution for your applications service conditions.
Don’t let the wrong tank design or wrong raw material leave you open to chemical attack. Bushmans have over 30 years experience making tanks. This is an important factor to give you the secure knowledge that we actually provide you long term performance for your storage tank.
Users need to confirm the chemical concentration and the liquid Specific Gravity to ensure that the correct tank design is offered for your Hydrochloric acid storage solution.
BUSHMANS proven tank design will be able to manage the Hydrochloric acid, as long as the tank is installed correctly. It requires the correct venting and fitting solutions and there must be no external mechanical stresses. For example, pipe work can cause stresses on the tank walls.
Users need to confirm the chemical concentration and the Specific Gravity of the chemical to ensure that the correct tank design is offered for your Hydrochloric acid storage solution.
