N/HF waste acid tank and piping deposition



(-----) January 24, 2008

Have used our N/HF waste tanks for 12 years and had no deposition problems, but over the past few months the N/HF waste acid tank and the piping servicing the tanks has developed a hard deposit. This deposit required a 20000 psi water cutter to remove the deposit. Piping was replaced, could not be cleaned. The deposit appeared dark and layered. Have sent out a deposit sample for analysis but not sure it will reveal anything. Any ideas? ferrofluoride hydrate, an iron carbide? The plant is a stainless finishing facility.
Thanks ahead of time,
Al

NOT very clear your system to me,
BUT here is response to your question:

The waste collectors pipes are draining different solutions that are producing sediments when they are collected in the tank. It means that a processhave change.
