Dip Tank Tips
Dip tanks save considerable time in the reclaim department, greatly reduce water usage, and also provide significant savings in chemical costs. While the benefits are huge, it's important to make sure you're using them correctly.
Screens should only be left in dip tank until emulsion becomes soft and easy to wash off with a hose or pressure washer. It is important not to leave screens in so long to where the emulsion falls completely off into the dip tank, as doing so will increase sludge build-up at the bottom of the tank and also reduce effectiveness of dip tank reclaim chemical.
