Acid Spill Containment for Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia

Acid spill containment systems are very similar between the different manufactures.   Some manufactures have products that can be used on existing battery installations without having to remove the existing racks, others you must remove the racks and install the spill containment before reinstalling the racks.

HPP has acid spill containment systems which allows us to provide for both new installations and existing installations with the best solutions available.

Basically if your battery system has 50 gallons or more of electrolyte,  whether it is wet or in gel form as in a VLRA battery, then you are required to have an acid spill containment system installed. This applies even if it is an existing battery system .The spill containment system will need a 4 inch lip with acid adsorbing/neutralizing  pillows inside the containment field to meet current regulations with some type of protection for the floor, whither it is an epoxy paint or a liner. In California the spill containments and pillows must be serialized to insure that you are keeping fresh pillows in the system and for disposal purposes. The neutralizing pillows have a shelf life of about 5 years, they will be required to be changed out and replaced with new ones after this time.

Another item that your facility should have, is what we call an acid spill kit. The kit is for use when working with batteries and an acid spill occurs that needs to be cleaned up and neutralized. This can happen when replacing batteries and a battery has a crack in the case and leaks acid out. The kit consists of a container of acid neutralizer and protective clothing. These kits can be in a small pail for smaller installation or in a drum for larger installations. Also the kit can be mounted in the battery room in a cabinet for easy access.

Today’s machinery and industrial equipment are equipped with sensitive electrical and mechanical components.  Structural Steel, Ceiling Beams, Plant & Factory Supports – Rust, Corrosion and Protection of Louisville Kentucky and Indiana.

While it’s easy to see how the appearance on a machine’s exterior is degrading, peeling or oxidizing, to prevent extremely accelerated wear and premature equipment replacements costs, it’s critical to give attention to the effects highly corrosive agents can have on the machine’s internal connections, engine compartment, and undercarriage.

Structural Steel, Ceiling Beams, Plant & Factory Supports – Rust, Corrosion and Protection can be a difficult undertaking to control, prevent and mitigate common corrosive agents from disabling and destroying equipment.  And while machines all have different jobs and operate in diverse environments, a protective coating will help shield every single one from harmful corrosive environments that cause equipment decay and breakdown, which leads to increased downtime, lost revenue and shorter machine life.

Waxes and polishes can prevent some corrosion, but they are not designed to cover every part of a machine (specifically internal) and they require regular polishing and buffing; time that mission critical equipment could be spending in the field.

The cost to coat a machine can provide a substantial return on investment. The coating materials and application are typically less than one percent of the machine cost, and new machine owners are able to capitalize the cost of coating.

A properly prepared and applied coating can provide many years of protection, generating significant cost savings in equipment maintenance and downtime.

Bottom line: by protecting your equipment today, you’ll be able to make and keep more money tomorrow.
