Message No. 9403, Started by smog on 06/29/02
To All,
I attended and interview on 28/06 and from that time I am confused.

The question asked to me was:

If a 50 KL HCL Tank fails and all the material gets accumulated in dyke walled/ bund what will happen to the drain valves of the bund, if the material is not with drawn in 4 to 5 hrs.

I replied:

It the valves are of SS 316 L don't bother whether coated of not, nothing will happen to the valves.

But the gentleman asking question replied that the valves will dissolve in HCl after 4 hrs.

Is it true?

Pl. help me.
