Hamico® Neutralizer 809-L

Hamico® Neutralizer 809-L is a combination of liquid alkalis and surface-active (wetting) agents designed specifically for neutralizing acidic residues from ferrous metals after pickling operations.

Actispeed® 450 – Acid Accelerator

Actispeed® 450 is a combination acid pickling inhibitor and descaling accelerator for hydrochloric acid pickling systems. This additive inhibits acid attack on base metal and accelerates scale removal from hot-rolled steels by up to 30%.

Activol® 2105 – Hydrochloric Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 2105 is the latest development in hydrochloric acid inhibitor technology, surpassing the level of protection to the base steel afforded by its predecessor, Activol® 1803. Activol® 2105 contains all the performance characteristics of a good pickling inhibitor, such as fume suppression, free-rinsing, reduced chloride carry-over, as well as reduced acid consumption due to superior base metal protection.

Activol® 1874 – Sulfuric Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1874 is a pickling inhibitor for all sulfuric acid pickling operations. Activol® 1874 contains all the desired properties of a strong acid pickling additive including: high efficiency on carbon steels, good protection to alloys and silicon steels, a foam cover, wetting agents, excellent acid and temperature stability and fume control. Instantly soluble in sulfuric acid baths, it reduces acid drag-out and provides more uniform removal of scale from rod, wire and sheet steel. This product is also available in non-foaming version (Activol® 1874 –NF) for compatibility with sulfuric acid reclamation processes.

Activol® 1803 – Hydrochloric Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1803 is the most efficient member of a line of hydrochloric acid pickling bath additives formulated for continuous hydrochloric picklers, including deep bath conventional and shallow dynamic systems. It provides all the requirements of a good pickling inhibitor including: descaling ability, high % efficiency (protection), excellent rinsability, reduced acid consumption, reduced gage and metal loss, durability, reduced hydrogen embrittlement, fume reduction and results in uniformly bright pickled surfaces.

Activol® 1793-B – Sulfuric Acid Additive

Activol® 1793-B is a sulfuric acid inhibitor for batch pickling. It is one of our strongest inhibitors, is a good “wetter” and provides a more uniform pickle and a better rinse. Additionally, it eliminates acid fumes and reduces hydrogen embrittlement. Pickle Life 1673-D (acid extender) and Activol® 1793-B can be used in combination to extend the life of the acid bath to iron levels of 7-12%. Activol® 1793-NF is a non-foaming version which can be used in operations utilizing combustion heating.

Activol® 1658 – Pickling Acid Additive

Activol® 1658 is a wetting and detergency additive for pickling and acid brightening baths. It is extremely stable to both high electrolyte and oxidation and can be used in the nitric and nitric/hydrofluoric acid combinations used for pickling stainless steels, zirconium, titanium, and other highly alloyed or exotic metals. This acid additive is classified as a medium “foamer” and will produce a foam blanket to hold down toxic oxide fumes and steam vapor.

Activol® 1590-CP – Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1590-CP is an acid additive for hydrochloric acid pickling solutions which imparts both “wetting” and detergency, while inhibiting base metal attack and offering fume control. Particularly useful in low temperature batch or continuous operations, Activol® 1590-CP prevents over-pickling and provides acid savings, reduces metal weight loss, fumes and hydrogen embitterment. This acid additive produces a bright uniform finish, prolongs pickle tank life, increases the speed of the pickling process and makes clear solutions in all acid concentrations which will not break down in acid storage tanks.

Activol® 1357 – Acid Inhibitor

Activol® 1357 is an acid additive for sulfuric, hydrochloric, nitric and hydrofluoric acid pickling and cleaning solutions and may be used as specialty additive on titanium in nitric acid baths. Activol® 1357 reduces surface tension, accelerates acid action and provides detergency in solution. This product also serves as a mild acid inhibitor to minimize acidic attack on base metal during scale removal. It promotes complete rinsing and reduces fume formation.

Atmoscleer® 8001 – Foam Blanket Additive

Atmoscleer® 8001 is a foam blanket additive for hydrochloric acid batch pickling baths. It imparts a densely packed, uniform layer of foam on the surface of a steel pickling bath. Some agitation may be required to generate the foam layer when there is not enough pickling action occurring, such as when the bath temperature is very low (below 1000F). It is extremely stable in hydrochloric acid baths containing high amounts of dissolved iron and under high temperature conditions. It cuts down on heat loss and holds corrosive hydrochloric fumes in the bath. It should be used in conjunction with Activol® acid inhibitors for hydrochloric acids, such as Activol® 1803, Activol® 1590-C, Activol® 1590–CP or Activol® 1903 for best results in batch pickling operations.
