Ammonia (NH3) Handling Design, Loading, and Installation Experts

Although no two Ammonia Loading solutions will be identical, the product itself determines much of the critical design criteria that will ensure that optimum safety and productivity can work together in harmony.

What is Ammonia? Ammonia is a colorless gas with a distinct odor composed of nitrogen and hydrogen atoms. It is produced naturally in the human body and in nature, in water, soil and air, even in tiny bacteria molecules.

In the United States, ammonia is typically a “tight-fill” (closed-loop) loading operation and is loaded into trucks or rail cars via chemical hoses, by-pass arms, or stainless steel arms.  Ammonia, if not handled properly can be fatal and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required. Additionally, because operators are on top of the vehicles during the loading process, fall prevention is essential, not only for safety but increases throughput.

Anhydrous Ammonia Transport

Ammonia is typically transported in 33,500-gallon non-insulated, thermally protected tank cars. The rails cars themselves are 9′ outside diameter with an overall length of ~65′, with a 6’ x 8′ centered crash box opening.
