Safety Concerns Are Easily Overcome for Pickling & Passivation Operations
Many fabricators are concerned with worker safety issues when they consider adding pickling & passivation processes to their operations. Safety is important, but a relatively small investment in safety equipment for employees, worker training, and careful adherence to the safety precautions detailed in the individual products’ MSDS and Product Data Sheets allows fabricators to use ANTOX pickling & passivation products safely and effectively.Disposal of Pickling Residues Can Be Effectively Managed
As the MSDS and Product Data Sheets for Antox pickling products make clear, pickling residues and rinse water must be collected and disposed of as hazardous waste. They cannot be washed down a drain or dumped into the sewer system. This is a major concern for most fabricators and hazardous waste disposal comes at a cost. In most areas of the United States, hazardous waste disposal services are available through major waste disposal contractors who will pick up your waste, transport it, and process it correctly. A consultation with one of these contractors can help you plan for these needs and estimate disposal costs. Is In-House Pickling & Passivation the Right Choice?
