RXSOL 1854 ALKALINE RUST, SCALE, CARBON AND PAINT REMOVER manufacturer and supplier in nairobi kenya africa

RXSOL 1854 is a strongly alkaline liquid concentrate containing sequestrants, surfactants and other additives in aqueous solution. RXSOL 1854 is a general purpose cleaner. It will remove oil, grease, rust, carbon and many types of paint. Rust is removed without attack on the base steel and there is markedly less tendency for re-rusting to occur compared with acid pickling.

Equipment materials

Mild steel is suitable for tank construction but it should be at least 6 mm (¼”) thick, welded inside and out. Heaters must be stainless steel or Inconel.

Safety guidance

Before operating the process described it is important that this complete document, together with any relevant Safety Data sheets, be read and understood.
General information

Rx Marine International supplies a wide range of chemical products and associated equipment for cleaning, sanitising, descaling, paint and carbon removal, metal protection and non-destructive testing. Sales Executives are available to advise on specific problems and applications.

Labour and environmental protection

All local and national regulations on the transport, storage, use and waste treatment of chemicals in concentrated or diluted form and as working solutions must be obeyed. Further specific information on the products can be found in the EC Safety Data Sheets supplied. The user should also pay strict attention to information and hazard symbols shown on product labels.

Waste disposal

All waste waters must be treated in accordance with national legislation and local regulations prior to discharge to the sewer.

Method of control

Restore the volume of the tank to its original level, if necessary, by adding water. Thoroughly mix and take a sample of 100-200ml. After allowing to cool to ambient, add active carbon, stir and allow to stand for 30 minutes. Filter solution through a Whatman No1 paper until about 100ml is obtained. Pipette 25ml into a 250ml volumetric flask. Make up to the mark with distilled water. Pipette 10ml of this solution into an Erlenmeyer flask and add 5-10 drops of Indicator No.13. Titrate against Testing solution No.9 until the blue colour is discharged leaving a pale yellow-green solution. Record the volume used as (V)ml.

The bath strength is calculated as follows:

Measured strength (%v/v RXSOL1854) = V x 1.18

Record this as (MS).

If the bath is below the required strength, add further RXSOL 1854 according to the following:

Volume RXSOL 1854 required = (CR – MS) ÷ (1 – (CR x 0.01)) x (TV ÷ 100)

Where CR = concentration required (%v/v).

TV = volume RXSOL 1854 solution in tank

MS = measured strength.

Effects on materials :

RXSOL 1854 is safe to use on all ferrous alloys but it will rapidly attack aluminium, zinc and tin. There is a negligible effect on magnesium, cadmium, nickel, cobalt, titanium and their alloys. Slight attack on copper may occur. Glass and ceramics will be etched by RXSOL 1854. Polythene, PVC and PTFE are substantially unaffected but degradation of some plastics and rubbers is possible.
