Perchloric Acid Exhaust Systems
The First order of concern with the design of a Perchloric acid ventilation system is its volatile nature. If Perchloric acid is able to accumulate and crystalize vibration impact or contact with organics can cause highly dangerous explosions. Plasticair Fan Company manufactures the most energy efficient by-pass venturi system with complete provisions for internal washing.
Another main concern is the severe corrosion problem to material such as epoxy coated mild steel, 304 and 316 stainless steel. The most effective materials to fight corrosion attach from Perchloric acid are PVC and FRP
Systems are best designed to be complete from one manufactures for sole source responsibility. Systems starts at the fume hood outlet and are ducted up through the roof to stack termination point.
