Our Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4) Dilution System is designed for the accurate dilution and/or transfer of concentrated sulfuric acid solution into railcars, tank trucks, and storage tanks. As an alternative to diluting with water, a stronger solution can be blended with a weaker solution to produce an intermediate concentration. Systems can be used for bulk loading of specific batch quantities or set up to operate continuously based on demand.
For highly exothermic applications, the system is designed with a heat exchanger and proprietary sulfuric acid reactor. This unique design avoids high exit temperatures using only cooling tower water. Cooling towers, cooling water pumps, and raw material pumps are also available through Powell.
This system comes fully assembled and skid-mounted, complete with controls, piping, valves, and instrumentation. It is engineered for a project specific flow rate, concentration range and accommodates blending of multiple raw material streams and any required additives. A properly sized system can reduce the number of necessary storage tanks at a given facility since only concentrated feedstock and water would need to be stored.
The system provides an accurate and repeatable final product allowing for precise product specifications and reduced raw material losses. It is programmed to instantly auto-adjust stream flow rates in the event of a process upset. If the process upset cannot be corrected automatically, the system will stop, protecting pumps and ensuring consistent product quality. The systems shut down upon high or low tank level.
Our systems are supported by our experienced technicians who can provide startup, operator training, or perform scheduled preventive maintenance and calibration. Additional charges may apply for these services.
