Acid Neutralization System
•When plumbing drainage systems contain the discharge of corrosive, toxic and flammable wastes, special attention should be placed in treating the waste. Untreated waste can physically damage a building’s plumbing system as well as the environment. Laboratories and industrial plants with this type of waste are common applications that require the treatment.
The ParkUSA®‘s LabTank® Neutralization Tank is designed so that acidic waste is collected and passed through the tank prior to discharging into the sanitary sewer system. The waste is chemically neutralized within the unit. It is important to note that the tank is an acid neutralizer. For optimal tank performance it is not recommended that acidic waste be further diluted prior to neutralization. Therefore, all acidic effluent should be gathered separately from other non-acidic waste and non-acidic waste should bypass the neutralization tank.

The Acid Neutralization Tank Model ANT is the standard model available. Operation occurs following chemical processes. Acids and alkalis can be neutralized, rendering them harmless. The degree of neutralization can be measured by the pH system (concentration of hydrogen ion). Acid pH values range from 0 to 6.99, a neutral solution is 7 and alkalis range from 7.01 to 14. The smaller the pH value, the higher the content of acidic waste. The larger the pH value the higher the content of alkaline waste. The neutralization process occurs by the chemical reaction of calcium and magnesium carbonate with the acidic waste. The pH value is increased to 6.0 - 8.0. This range of pH in the neutralized effluent is generally acceptable for discharge into public sewer systems.
- Medical Facilities
The ParkUSA ANT is available with the following components:
- Box: base structure containing the acid neutralization rocks “Labrox”. This box is made of concrete or steel depending on
model and application.
- Labrox: medium that can be either a lump limestone or marble in the 1” to 3” size with a high calcium carbonate equivalent
content in excess of 95%. For a waste containing predominantly sulfuric acid, a dolomitic limestone is preferred, Dolomitic
limestone contains a high percentage of magnesium carbonate in addition to the calcium carbonate. A smaller size fill
should not be used as it tends to solidify and prevent passage of liquid. A full charge of neutralizing fill is to the invert
of the tank inlet.
- Liners: Liners are available for each model, including; exterior/interior
high density polyethylene (HDPE) for model ANT,
and ceramic brick for model ANTC.
