Clearing a sulphuric acid leak

A sulphuric acid tank on a sewage treatment works site leaked into a bunded area, corroding the surface material. MTS was tasked with removing the corroded material and chemical pads that were used to soak up the leaked acid, plus any residual acid.

Our specialist entry crew used full chemical PPE and worked alongside our jet cleaning expert who steam cleaned the bund once the flooring material had been removed.

We also jet cleaned caustic soda control cabinets on the same site, as they become furred up0 with leaking caustic soda.

Our cleaning crews and ADR tipping tankers are available for all types of Hazchem work.
