Steel Industry Acid Pickling & Air Pollution Control
Acid Pickling Application:
In the finishing process, cold-rolled steel is cleaned to remove impurities through a continuous acid pickling process. After the steel is cleaned in pickling baths, residual liquor is rinsed off through a series of spray bars. An instantaneous supply of hot water is required at a wide range of water flow rates depending on how many spray bars are being operated.
Acid Pickling Solution:
The Pick 6X150 Variable Flow Heater, sized to handle between 50 – 280 gpm water flow at a 95°F temperature rise was selected. At a maximum steam load requirement of 11,500 lbs./hr., the Pick Heater will maintain 130°F water temperature on demand.
