PKG Equipment offers a citric acid passivation line. Process tanks can be fabricated from copolymer polypropylene, carbon steel or 304 stainless steel. The line can include mumerous stations (approximately 1,500 gallons each) including a stainless steel dryer. For ventilation, the line uses PVC hoods, PVC ductwork, a 33,000-cfm PVC exhaust fan and push air system. The line is modularized on the shop floor with steam, process water feed, rinse feed and drain piping; after testing, it is then disassembled into three modules for shipment.

The system includes one automatic, programmable hoist with a capacity of 2,000 pounds. A data collection system aids in troubleshooting and recording temperatures, level control, immersion times and other process parameters. The company also fabricates the line’s stainless steel process racks, the skid mounted, automatic wastewater treatment system, and a containment area coated with Hi-Chem Rhino Lining. Start-up assistance is provided with turnkey installation.
