TEMPORARY HYDROCHLORIC ACID STORAGE TANK PENDING THE ARRIVAL OF NEW TANKS.
During maintenance work on the water purification installation, this inter-communal cooperative needed a temporary storage solution for a 37% hydrochloric acid solution. In order to guarantee the continuity of the wastewater purification processes, a rental tank was installed for use pending the arrival of the new storage tanks.
Hydrochloric acid is an aqueous solution of hydrogen chloride gas. It is an organic acid that is highly corrosive. Hydrochloric acid is used to neutralise (pH reduction) wastewater.
DOUBLE-WALLED STORAGE TANK
Because hydrochloric acid is a hazardous liquid, it cannot be stored in just any storage tank. Moreover, the law dictates that hydrochloric acid must be stored in accordance with the Belgian VLAREM regulations.
We have a large inventory of VLAREM-compliant storage tanks which can be put into operation rapidly. The tanks have a volume of 36,000 litres and are fitted with all the necessary process instrumentation. Thanks to the overfill protection, leak detection and level measurement, commissioning these tanks is a straightforward process.
The tanks can be fitted with accessories (pumps, hoses, gas scrubber, etc.) so they can function as a complete replacement for an existing installation.
What’s more, this type of tank stands on a coated leak tray. This tray can catch small spills but also provides adequate support on the surface on which the tank stands.
