An opportunity to minimise the risks associated with the storage and handling of dangerous chemicals in tanks is to have an industrial storage tank with the design, construction and installation to meet the appropriate Australian Standards. Guidance on the installation of tanks for Lactic acid solution can be found in AS3780: Storage and handling of corrosive substances.
BUSHMANS dangerous chemical tank design will be able to manage the Lactic acid, as long as the tank is installed without and internal or external mechanical stresses. For example, pipe work can cause stresses on the tank walls, which must be avoided for long service life.
The plastic that BUSHMANS uses is an advanced generation linear polyethylene material that is one of the most inert plastics available. BUSHMANS only uses the best material, for the whole tank – providing maximum strength, and chemical resistance.
BUSHMANS provides a full and comprehensive industrial guarantee for storage of Lactic acid at ambient temperatures.
If the Lactic acid within the tank is expected to exceed 23C advise your BUSHMANS consultant, to determine a custom designed solution for your specific use.
Bushmans require users to confirm the chemical concentration and the Specific Gravity of the Lactic acid to ensure that the correct tank design is offered for your liquid storage solution.
