A Better Chemical Storage Solution for Municipal Water Treatment Plants

It’s common for wastewater treatment plants to rely on cross-linked polyethylene chemical tanks, but many municipal water treatment plants are using inferior linear polyethylene or fiberglass tanks. While the short-term benefits are tempting, using linear polyethylene or fiberglass tanks can be like pouring money down the drain. Instead, Poly Processing’s cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) tanks give you better performance, greater cost-effectiveness, longer useful life, and more innovative solutions.

Navigating the Various Types of Polyethylene

Just because different tanks are made from polyethylene, doesn’t mean they will give you the same performance. Various polyethylene tanks may not even be suitable for storing the type of chemical you use. 

Polyethylene is available in several different types of resin. Some types are made for injection molding, others for extrusion, others for blow molding and yet others for rotational molding.

Proper Storage Protection for Your Diesel Exhaust Fluid

In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency mandated the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) in diesel engines. In an SCR-equipped vehicle, the exhaust gas from the engine goes through a particulate filter to eliminate the soot and ash generated from burning diesel fuel.

Hydrochloric Acid Storage Requirements

Hydrochloric acid (HCl), also known as muriatic acid, is toxic and highly corrosive. The chemical is used in many different applications, including chloride production, refining ore and producing metals like tantalum and tin.

Because HCl is such a powerful acid, it is often used for neutralizing basic solutions. It also requires careful handling and an engineered storage system that is designed specifically for hydrochloric acid.
