Best Practices for Transferring Acids: The Role of Drum Pumps in Handling Acids

Discover how NZ Pump Co.'s Ezi-action Drum Pumps ensure safe, precise, and efficient acid transfer in various industries.

Best Practices for Transferring Acids: The Role of Drum Pumps in Handling Acids

Acids Unveiled: A Trio of Powerhouses

  1. Hydrochloric Acid (HCl): A clear, colourless solution of hydrogen chloride in water, HCl is widely used in the production of chemicals, for pH regulation, and in the food industry. Its highly corrosive nature demands careful handling.
  2. Nitric Acid: A strong oxidising agent, nitric acid plays a pivotal role in the manufacture of fertilisers and explosives. Its reactive properties mean that transfers must be conducted with utmost caution.
  3. Sulfuric Acid: One of the most produced and used industrial chemicals globally, sulfuric acid finds applications in battery production, mineral processing, and chemical synthesis. Its dense, viscous nature combined with its corrosive properties makes it a challenge to transfer.
