Sewage and concrete attack

Sewage and concrete attack. In general terms domestic sewage does not attack concrete in direct contact with it. Untreated trade/industrial effluents may attack concrete if it contains aggressive chemicals (e.g. sulphates) and/or has a low pH (e.g. below 5.5) or a very high pH ie. very alkaline or acidic respecively.

Sulphuric Acid Attack on Concrete Septic Tanks

This kind of attack can be protected by concrete liners and coatings as well, but it is important to remember that the areas that are most susceptible are the concrete walls at the waterline and in the air space of the septic tank and pump tank. To be more cost effective, the liner or coating can be applied above the waterline, which includes any

Jan 01, 2014  There are many variants of severe attack to concrete in sewer pipes, we focus here on the most aggressive one—the sulfuric acid attack. The situation can be described briefly as follows. The anaerobic bacteria in the flowing waste water release hydrogen sulfide gas (H 2 S) within the air space of the pipe. These bacteria are especially active ...

Sulfate attack in concrete

Sulfate attack in concrete and mortar. Sulfate attack can be 'external' or 'internal'. External: due to penetration of sulfates in solution, in groundwater for example, into the concrete from outside. Internal: due to a soluble source being incorporated into the concrete at the time of mixing, gypsum in the aggregate, for example. External sulfate attack ...
