Waste-water from industries, workshops, photographic labs, school or university labs can be acidic in nature and requires to be treated before being released into the sewer. An Acid Neutralisation tank is used to normalise the pH level of waste water containing high levels of acid before this waste water can be discharged into the sewerage system.
At Austere, our acid neutralising tanks are filled with calcite for acid neutralisation. The tanks are fitted with three internal baffles. The three baffle system forces liquid and acidic waste to flow through the tank to filter past the calcite, thereby neutralising the acid and settling the pH of the water. This water can finally be safely discharged to the sewer.
