Hamico® 8936 – Rinse Aid

Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid is an additive for rinse systems after pickling steel using hydrochloric or sulfuric acids. Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid prevents the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which typically occur in rinse tanks and prevents surface discoloration on steel exiting the bath. Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid complexes ferrous iron, thus preventing it from re-depositing.

Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid buffers the rinse water against sudden drops in pH, due to acid carryover from pickling tanks and protects from flash rusting after rinse operations. It may be used in hot or cold baths.

Hamico® 8936 Rinse Aid is easy to handle and is not corrosive to the skin.

Hamico® 8934 – Rinse Aid

Hamico® 8934 Rinse Aid is a stain preventing additive for rinse systems for use after hydrochloric or sulfuric acid pickling operations. It is an acidic product possessing corrosion protection and wetting. It is designed to eliminate the brown or reddish stains often experienced on steel exiting a continuous pickler. It eliminates the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which accumulate in rinse tanks as a result of acid bath carryover. Hamico® 8934 Rinse Aid is compatible with waste treatment processes where removal of metals like iron, copper, zinc, and chromium must be accomplished to meet limits for effluents.

This product prevents carryover products from depositing on the immersed steel surface and protects the rinsed surface before drying occurs. Hamico® 8934 Rinse Aid is low-foaming to make water treatment and disposal easier and employs a tracer to make it easy to make concentration determinations using a test kit.

Rainkote® NC – Stain Prevention Additive

Rainkote® NC is an additive to prevent line-stop stain in the rinse section of hydrochloric or sulfuric acid pickling lines. It is an acidic product possessing corrosion protection and wetting. It is designed to eliminate brown or reddish stains often experienced on the steel strip exiting a continuous pickler. It eliminates the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which accumulate in rinse tanks as a result of acid bath carryover.

Due to its non-chelating components, it is compatible with waste treatment processes where removal of metals like iron, copper, zinc, and chromium must be accomplished to meet limits for effluents.

Hamico® 8906-WT – Rinse Aid

Hamico® 8906-WT Rinse Aid is a stain preventing additive for rinse systems following hydrochloric or sulfuric acid pickling operations. It is an acidic product possessing corrosion protection and wetting. It is designed to eliminate the brown or reddish stains often experienced on steel exiting a continuous pickler. It eliminates the formation of iron hydroxide slimes which accumulate in rinse tanks as a result of acid bath carryover.

Pickle Life® 1673-D – Sulfuric Acid Extender

Pickle Life® 1673-D is an additive for extending the useful life of sulfuric acid pickling baths up to 12% iron.

Hamikleen® 9002 – Sulfuric Acid Additive

Hamikleen® 9002 is a free-flowing granular additive for use in sulfuric acid pickling. This product produces a brighter, more uniformly pickled steel surface and provides excellent wetting properties to the bath.

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.

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® 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.

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.
