Compatibility of rubber lined mild steel tank with 98% sulphuric acid


2003

Sir,

Is rubber lined mild steel compatible with 98% sulphuric acid? In our case rubber lining peeled off from the tank. Is mild steel OK? and if Rubber lining is already there what is the alternate solution?

One of the safest materials to contain sulphuric acid is Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) polyethylene. This is the material used in drums and pallets that most end users buy. Ruber is a generic term for a variety of materials and hence cannot be properly identified or recommended. G. Marrufo-Mexico
