Corrosive Liquid Disposal
Corrosive Liquid Disposal Service in The United States
Corrosive liquid disposal is a turnkey service offered by ADCO Services to hazardous waste generators in The United States. Acids and bases both Organic and Inorganic often present waste generators with great difficulty in disposing of such an intricate waste stream, especially when the Corrosive liquid exhibits two or more types of hazard classes for instance in cases where the Corrosive liquid is also reactive or flammable. These tricky waste management situations can cause a variety of issues for waste generators in search of an efficient and reliable disposal service. Corrosives can be increasingly difficult to store and remove because of their reactivity to Metals, Air, Water, etc.
Liquid corrosive chemicals are those with a pH of 4.0 or lower or a pH of 9 or higher. Solid chemicals are considered corrosive when in solution and they too will fall in the same pH range of pH < 4 and pH > 9. A highly corrosive chemical has a pH of 2 or lower or a pH of 12.5 or higher. Please note that Corrosive waste streams can cause significant harm to facility personnel if proper containment and disposal is not followed, as acids and bases are extremely dangerous in concentrated forms. Class 8 Corrosive liquids are highly reactive substances that cause obvious damage to living tissue as well as metals. Fumes produced from some corrosive liquids to exposed eyes and inhalation of such fumes can cause significant irreversible permanent damage. Eye protection, rubber gloves, and respirator masks should be worn at all times when handling Corrosives to avoid injury.
Corrosive liquid disposal requirements such as the paperwork preparation and profiling into a processor can be a difficult and time-consuming task, and with time constraints set forth by state and federal regulatory agencies, generators of Corrosive wastes may find it often problematic to ship these hazardous materials.
