Maintenance of dip tank health is an important task for anyone using Cortec® products in a dip bath or recirculating application. As the rust preventative, cleaner, hydrotesting additive, or other product is used over time, it will gradually decrease in strength and volume. Products may also become contaminated through improper storage or the buildup of dirt, grease, or machining oils from the metals dipped in the tank. In either case, the product becomes less effective.
If the product is contaminated, dispose of it and replace it with a new product. Sometimes this is obvious, for example, when a product smells bad or a tank of BioCorr® is no longer milky white.
Good maintenance of a dip tank is almost as critical as selecting a good product. It can mean the difference between product failure or success, product waste or economy. Get started on good dip tank maintenance habits today by contacting Cortec® for a titration kit or for further assistance: https://www.cortecvci.com/titration-kits/.
