Hydrochloric acid is a powerful substance. And, like most powerful substances, it is just as potentially dangerous as it is potentially useful. To understand how to store hydrochloric acid, we first must understand some of the properties of it.
Hydrochloric Acid Tank Specifications
- Hydrochloric acid is a very, very corrosive material. Though there are other constraints applicable to storing hydrochloric acid (and , like always, this post is not a definitive safety list), the corrosiveness of this acid is one of the main constraints to proper storage.
- A very corrosive material can, in essence, cause intense damaging chemical reactions to the substances it comes into contact with. Hydrochloric acid, as an incredibly corrosive and strong acid, can essentially eat away at different materials (including potentially corroding a very strong material like metal). This is part of what makes it such a powerful substance.
- Hydrochloric acid is a partial component of some of the digestive acid in the human stomach! However, that does not mean that hydrochloric acid is in any way safe for humans to ingest or come into contact with. Because it absolutely is not. That is another storage issue, keeping your team safe from hydrochloric acid’s hazardous affects.
- Hydrochloric acid needs to be stored in a specific hydrochloric acid storage tank that has been carefully, and specially, designed to stand up to hydrochloric acid’s intensely corrosive nature. Hydrochloric acid can even corrode through metal. However, Belding Tank goes beyond metal, and offers strong fiberglass tanks with anti-corrosion specifications. Because hydrochloric acid is such a strong acid, it requires the kind of special anti-corrosion made storage tanks that Belding Tank supplies.
