Orion polypropylene and polyethylene neutralization tanks are designed to receive,
dilute and neutralize corrosive and harmful chemical wastes before allowing such
materials to be discharged into the public sewers or the environment.
Orion tanks are seamless with uniform wall thickness and are free of stresses.
The inlet, outlet and vent connections are welded into the tank wall at specified
locations at no extra charge. Tanks are complete with cover (bolted cover styles)
or in welded cover styles with manhole.

Neutralization of corrosive, toxic and flammable wastes is necessary to
the environment and piping systems, even when quantities and concentrations are small.
Such wastes can cause physical damage to a building's piping or outside sewer systems
and, if effluent is being discharged to the environment (such as rivers and lakes), severe
damage can result to wildlife and water sources.
Neutralization is the process whereby acids and alkalis are rendered harmless.
The degree of neutralization can be measured by a system known as pH (positive Hydronium ions).
The degree of measurement is a pH number of 7, which is neutral. Acids range from 0 to 6.99.
Alkalis range from 7.01 to 14. The smaller the number, the higher the content of acidic waste.
The higher the pH number, the higher the alkaline waste.
