Keep The Acids You Are Currently Using
You can keep your current acid and never dispose of an acid bath
From the first day you add PRO pHx to your acids,
you eliminate acid disposal. This means Zero Acid Disposal!
You also reduce your current acid consumption by 70 - 90% annually.
This provides for Add Back or "Acid Spikes" in the range
of 10% per month (which generally makes up for drag out and evaporation).
This may vary as your drag out, evaporation and production requirements
The PRO pHx Maintainence Is Simple.
1) Treat. 2) Filter. 3) Titrate and spike as required
Do this, and you will never dispose of a tank of acid again. 1)
Add PRO pHx to the acid at 1% of the total acid /
water volume. 2) Filter acids [ongoing] 3) Titrate
the acid and spike the weekly as required to maintain acid strength.
PRO pHx will be added at 1% of the volume of the acid spike.
Filtration Is Necessary. 5 to 10 micron is used most often
but filtration can vary from 1 to 75 micron.
Amplate Celebrates Two Years
Without Acid Disposal
This is the

two year old acids which are still performing like new.
The acids are clearer than the photo indicates.

Left Beaker: Nitric Acid (previously disposed of approximately
every 6 months)
was first treated with PRO pHx, 3/28/01, and used
continuously since that date.
Right Beaker: Hydrochloric Acid (previously disposed of
each 7 to 10 days) was
first treated with PRO pHx, November 21, 2000, and
used continuously since that date.
(This acid is 2 years old as of November, 2002.)
The Nitric Acid is approximately 2 & 1/2 years old. The HCL
will be 2 years old on November 21, 2002, and it has been used approximately
16 hours a day, five days a week since treating with PRO pHx
in November, 2000. The HCL acid bath perviously lasted 7 to 10 days
before disposal was required and this acid was completely spent
and ready for disposal before it was treated, restored and has been
in continuos use since.
