Material of construction for zinc chloride mixing(2000)
Please let me know what kind of vessel can we use to react zinc with hydrochloric acid.Pankaj Kochar

PVC lined steel tanks are routinely used in the plating industry for holding hydrochloric acid and zinc chloride plating solutions. As long as the temperature in your process does not exceed 140 °F., it should be fine. But for that matter, so should solid PVC, polypropylene, and vinyl ester fiberglass.
