3. The staff also need to check the acid concentration & temperature and the tonnage of the pickling pipe before operation. These can be detected by using professional measuring equipment.
4. For pickled steel pipes, the appropriate weight is between 2 to 5 tons at a time, and should controll in 5 to 15 minutes. Time needs to be adjusted according to the weight. The steel pipe also needs frequent vibration during the pickling process. When the pipe is lowered into the acid tank, the steel pipe must be tilted to prevent hydrochloric acid from hurting people.
