I am making a mix with the following ratios

water 1200 litres

Phosphoric acid 250 litres

potassium hydroxide 360 kgs

 

When I add the hydroxde to the acid water it give off a violent reaction and heats up.

Initially adding the hydroxide the reaction is muted. but the more I add the more violent the result.

Is there any way of mixing this mix to lessen the reaction?
