Removal of residual phosphate from DOM steel tubes



(-----) 2006

I am interested in knowing a popular method for removing phosphate residue of the order of 1 to 2 g/sq.m from DOM steel tubes.The solution should also have anti rust ingredients and be able to do the job in under 5 minutes.Ambient temperature 30 to 35 C is preferable operating temperature.

Dear Kumaravel,

You can use the following solution for removing phosphate coating on steel tubes:

1 liter of Conc. HCl + 20 g of antimony trioxide at room temperature.

This solution in effective in removing the phosphate coating within 1-2 min. It will have only a minimal attack on the base metal.
