    Hydrocloric acid

    Ok. Need some advice. I have been cleaning lime trucks for about 3 months now. I uae a lot of hydrocloric acid on the trailer and rims and tanks. They really hadnt been washed in a year untill i got the contract. I use 33% acid mixed half and half with water. Use too i could spray the tanks, it would foam up. Rense and look awsome. Now it seems to shed off like its straight water?. Wont foam unless its in the dirt stuck on it. I have no idea whats up and the tanks wont come clean. I even tried straight acid and it still ran right off. Keep in mind its just acid for ag use. Not some special high dollar blend. Wondering if a need a surfactant. Any ideas?

    Hydrocloric acid is muratic acid an i doubt thats what you are doing i think you or i hope you are putting hydrofloric acid on them which you would need more than just the acid itself because without surfactants an other goodies it will not work.Why dont you just get your acid local from local pressure washing place or online from one of the vendors.I mixed up alot of different stuff but i let the true pros mix it up an gladly pay them for it because one mistake with a high percentage of hydrofloriic an its game over.Good luck in the truck cleaning it can be very fun do do if you have the right chemicals to work with.

    It is hydrocloric acid 33%. I can drive 100 miles and get it from a pressure washer place. Or 30 and get it from local feed store for cleaning milk tanks. And only pay $200 a drum. I guess the good stuff has to have something else to help it along. Will be calling manufactors in the morning. Any input w i uld.be appreciated.

    Well 200 a drum is high for that around here but not really sure how you are spraying that kinda concentration up in the air i use muratic on some concrete an certain types of brick some times an that stuff is strong cant imagine shooting it in the air holy cow.I think you would be better off just getting the right chemical for the job just saying.
