What is a pH Neutralization System?

pH neutralization systems are typically used in life science buildings for a few different reasons. They are also used in other kinds of business buildings, such as anyone that needs to expel waste after the fact. This could be something like a business dealing with chemicals, or anything that could be harmful to us or the environment. Companies who discharge any of these forms of waste into the sewer systems, or bodies of water, etc. are required to neutralize these chemicals.

This all being said, the term pH neutralization refers to the chemical reaction where acid and a base react quantitatively. This essentially means that both efforts are working to neutralize the other, making it “safe” for the environment.

There are actually a few different components to a pH neutralization system, which helps make sure, as mentioned above, that waste is neutralized and safe for the environment. Let’s take a look at some of these different components that make pH neutralization systems work.

  • Instrumentation: This piece of the puzzle works to monitor, control and record the information from the waste, as well as the process as a whole.

  • pH electrodes and their mounting hardware

  • Effluent holding tank: this holding tank allows for a place for the wastewater to stay and be treated until it is ready to be expelled.

  • Level control

  • Chemical pumps and reagent storage tanks

  • Mixers to ensure all chemicals are mixed properly
