Acid Recovery System for a Titanium Pickling Line in Japan

Hong Kong (2013-12-05) – Scanacon Asia Ltd. is pleased to announce it has been awarded an Acid Management project from a titanium strip producer in Japan. The system will be used in a combination APL (hot rolled, cold rolled and finished coils).


Scanacon will deliver the Acid Recovery and Acid Filtration system for this APL in July 2014 and the system will be up-and-running by the end of 2014. The customer took the decision to invest in the project to reduce acid cost, environmental impact and improve the pickling process.


The customer is one of the world’s largest titanium producers. Working together, the system design was a result of thoroughly testing and evaluating the equipment on-site, on actual process conditions.


For the past three years, Scanacon has developed and tested a new concept for acid management products designed to meet the specific needs of the special metals industry. This project demonstrates that our new “Special Metals” product line is quickly gaining acceptance amongst special metals producers.


“We are confident that our co-operation with this major producer will lead to more projects and further developments in the near future”, says Mr. Andreas Ljungberg


Order value is close to 1 million Euro.
